Introduction. Occlusal splint,a well-established form of therapy, has been reported by many authors to have a beneficial effect on caraniomandibular disorders. The articulating paper used to adjust the occlusal appliance is incapable of measuring timing sequebce, occlusal force and pressure. The only way to precisely measure occlusal forces and time is the T-Scan III. Case report. There is presented a case of a pacient with myogenuous craniomandibular disorder. A stabilization splint( full coverage splint) was constructed in the maxilla and the appliance was adjusted according to data provided by the T-Scan III-BioEMG integrated system. Results. Computer guided occlusal adjustments ensure improved force and time dynamics to balance and better adjust the splint occlusal surface, confirmed by improved electromyographic activity and relief of symptoms. Conclusions. (a) The concept of neuromuscular dentistry is one of great topicality. The integrated T-Scan III – BioEMG system as part of this approach has been proved useful in monitoring the oral rehabilitation treatment ; (b) The use of these computer-assisted diagnostic systems put the treatment on scientific bases and thus the rehabilitation is an evidence-based one.
