This study will investigate whether there are changes during teeth clenching by exploring the electrical activity of the smallest functional component of jaw muscles before and during pain experience.
Participation will involve attending the Jaw Function and Orofacial Pain Research Unit at Westmead Hospitals for a total of two sessions: you will have an impression made of your teeth in the first session; and jaw function experimentation in the second session, including controlled muscle pain induction, questionnaires and computed tomography imaging.
The first session will last approximately half an hour and the second session will take approximately two and a half hours of your time. Participation in this study will not cost you anything.
