INTRODUCTION: The DCM include different clinical conditions, with different etiology, which require different treatments, but are linked by common clinical signs and symptoms: Masticatory muscle pain in the preauricular region, TMJ Limitation and / or alteration of normal function mandible Articular noises. Over the years there have been numerous proposals for classification dcm. the classification most commonly used today is that the RDC. This classification as well as a tab on the symptoms and signs provides guidance on the validity of the diagnostic tools available. The same DRC excludes from the list of valid diagnostic tools with EMG. AIM: The aim of this study is to determine whether use of electromyography in combination with transcranial electrical stimulation can be effective in the diagnosis of DCM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our study we subjected 60 patients to electromyographic examination during transcranial electrical stimulation. RESULTS: The results we can establish that transcranial electrical stimulation electromyography examination makes highly diagnostic and therapeutic for DCM.
