The paper describes integrated examination of 140
patients (67 men and 73 women) aged 20 to 65 years old suffering
from excessive tooth wear of different severity. The excessive den‑
tal abrasion causes morphological and functional defects of hard
tooth tissues. Four types of responses with relative functional
states might occur in masticatory muscles due to the load. Suc‑
cesses in treating patients with excessive tooth wear directly de‑
pend on the state of dentition. To restore the function of mastica‑
tory muscles is one of the most important stages of rehabilitation.
