Abstract

The effect of measurement errors on quantitative calculation of temporomandibular joint reaction force was investigated in a two-dimensional, two-muscle model. A computer program using the model incremented the magnitude of the bite force and muscle forces and the lengths of their moment arms, and calculated the joint reaction force at each increment. Computation of the joint reaction force is most sensitive to the relative lengths of the bite force and muscle forces moment arms. Absolute values for each muscle force are not required and errors in the magnitudes of the muscle forces have only a minor effect on calculation of the total joint reaction force.
