Methods: the sample comprised 32 volunteers with spastic CP and with normal development, with ages ranging from 7 to 13 years of age, characterized based on the Classification of Angle and Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC-TMD).
Simultaneously, we evaluated the position and movement of the head and jaw and electrical activity of Temporalis and Masseter muscles by means of kinematic and electromyography.
Results: the CP was not associated with the presence of TMD or with the alteration of dental occlusion.
In the CP group, there was greater asymmetry of the temporalis muscle (p 0.05), more head extension at maximum mouth opening (p 0.05), greater range of head extension (p 0.01) and greater range of anterior projection of the head (p 0.05).
Conclusion: the greater asymmetry in muscle activity, the ...
