Stomatognathic perturbations

Limitation of the amplitude of the opening of the mouth due to an excessive tonus of the mandibular muscles; mandibular retraction; articular click (TMJ) when moving the mouth, potentially leading to capsular injury; abnormal movements and sounds of the teeth, particular during sleep; changes in swallowing due to a deficit in the perception of the tonus of the muscles involved in swallowing; injuries of the oral mucosa due to biting during mastication, as a result of the deficit in localising the body segments involved in mastication.
