Myofascial pain was the most common form of mandibular joint disorders.

Twenty patients with myofascial pain examined according to Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders and twenty-control group. Cadiax compact used to evaluate Bennett angle value. The result showed lower mean value of boarder movement and Bennett angle for myofascial group compared with control with significant difference between the two groups. The assessment of the masticatory system movement using mechanical devices contributing together for better evaluation of different disorder of jaw locomotor system.
