The measurement of mandibular movements is a complex task that can be simplified through the use of electrognathography (EGN), an examination that can be applied as an auxiliary method for the diagnosis or follow-up of the evolution of specific therapeutics applied to the stomatognathic system. The aim of the present study was to review the literature pertaining to the use of EGN as a method for monitoring jaw movements in the research and treatments related to the stomathognathic system. A literature review was made by searching for articles in PubMED, MEDLINE (1997-2010), MEDLINE (1966-1996), LILACS, Ovid, BBO and SciELO databases. In this systematic review, 373 articles were found, of these, 23 articles were selected. The study concluded that EGN can be used with advantages in varied clinical situations, although it is a technique still not widely applied.
