The software for analyzing chewing cycles was yet again rewritten for the third time in accordance with the improved understanding of the clinical significance of chewing patterns acquired in the meantime. Certainly, as time passed, and hundreds of chewing cycles from patients were rigorously classified, grouped, and recorded, we were able to identify from this mass of computer data the most significant figures from a clinical point of view. The last-generation program represents an important step forward, particularly in calculating the mean cycle and in EMG recording.

The statistical evaluation of patients with accurately identified malocclusions (from a functional viewpoint) allows the identification of pathognomonic EMG features. Understanding neuromuscular activity and coordination between the muscles on the side of the bolus and contralateral muscle during mastication of hard and soft boluses is of fundamental clinical importance for the correct treatment of both youngsters and adults. 4 1992: Replacement of the Sirognathograph with a customized K6-I kinesiograph instrument – rewriting of the software A further technological innovation took place when the Sirognathograph was replaced with the K6-I Myotronics kinesiograph (Tukwila, WA, USA).

The stage near occlusion, dedicated to ­chewing of the bolus) has been likened to a ballistic-type movement. In fact, when dealing with ­high-precision trajectory, as maximum intercuspation is approached, the less controllable and modifiable does the mandibular movement become. The precise neural control of the “occlusal phase of closing” is dedicated to the efficiency of grinding and the avoidance of traumatic injury and nociceptive stimuli from the teeth, in order to preserve and protect the stomatognathic system.
