Myofascial pain in a young violin player: a case report
Journal/Book: N Z Dent J. 1990; 86: 92-3.
Abstract: This report reviews a young patient who had undergone orthodontic therapy leaving occlusal interferences which were initially able to be tolerated. When symptoms of dysfunction arose, the general practitioner referred her to a specialist. The treatment involved a segmental bite-plane. Symptoms returned when the patient was under stress, and a Michigan splint was made as the segmental type of bite-plane is unsuitable for long-term use.
