Abstract: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the interocclusal appliance efficiency in patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD), by using computerized electromyographic (EMG) evaluation in the rest position of the mandible. Twenty-two patients (male and female) with TMD symptoms, between 18 and 53 years of age, were examined. EMG evaluations were performed before the treatment and during the 90th, 120th and 150th day of using the interocclusal appliance therapy. In the 90th and 120th day, inserting canine guidance and group function disclusion, respectively, changed interocclusal appliance. The results showed that group function disclusion caused shorter EMG activity in the mandible rest position for the anterior temporalis muscle.
