The jaw-closing muscles perform movements of the mandible, provide force for a variety of natural functions, and are subject to disorders often manifested as jaw muscle pain. Bite force measurement and surface electromyography have been used in the present investigation to assess jaw-closing muscle activity and strength in young healthy adult subjects and in older edentulous patients.
