The temporalis contraction intensity is maximal so long as there
bilateral canine contacts, as with an Anterior Bite Plane...
By eliminating the canine contacts from the Anterior Bite Plane, the
resulting appliance is considered an
"Anterior Bite Stop" (contacts on the incisor teeth only).
Without canine contacts, temporalis contraction is reduced to ~1/3 of maximum.
