The Dynamics and Function of the Masticatory System: The Multiple (Inter)faces of Occlusion


The masticatory system functions in a complex, integrated, orthopedic
manner. Long-term orthopedic stability is dependent on many factors.
Many have suggested a causal relationship between mechanical
stresses such as those associated with bruxism. Excessive forces may
promote maladaptation and/or pathology. This presentation will include a
recommended protocol for patient evaluation. Molecular biological
factors currently recognized to result from excessive mechanical
stresses applied to these structures will be highlighted.
