This study assed activity of masticatory muscles by electromyography with comparing the efficacy of exercise program and different splinting methods of anterior disc dislocation. Twenty patients with anterior disc dislocation without reduction divided into two groups; one for centric splint(n=10)& the other one for the anterior repositioning splint(n=10). It was found that, there was a statistically significant decrease in mean joint pain scores through all periods in the both treatment and statistically significant difference between duration and amplitude of motor unit of anterior temporal and Masseter muscles of the two groups. There was no a significant difference between duration and amplitude of motor unit of anterior temporal and Masseter muscles of the two groups before and after treatment  at three  months with highly significant difference of the two groups before and after treatment  at six months, on MRI, there was  marked reduction of joint effusion of temporomandibular joint in both groups. 

Keywords: Temporomandibular joint, exercise program, splint, electromyography, magnetic resonance
