Sample text

Attention to occlusion would be elevated to a much higher priority if the following observations were more universall y noticed and analyzed. Occlusal disease is: • The #1 most common destructive dental disorder. • The #1 contributing factor to eventual loss of teeth. • The # 1 reason for needing extensive restorative dentistry. • The #1 factor associated with discomfort within masticatory system structures. This includes pain/discomfort in the musculature, the teeth, and the region of the temporomandibular joints (TMJs).

Placement of a simple flat interocclusal device on the anterior teeth separates the posterior teeth and allows the TMJs to completely seat up into centric relation. This permits the lateral pterygoid muscles to release contraction and results in a return to coordinated muscle function. The relief of all symptoms is almost immediate unless there is an intracapsular structural disorder (Figure 6-3). It is also an indication that the same relief could be achieved by direct correction of the occlusal interferences.

In addition to the self-centering shape of the disk, the posterior ligament extends from the disk and attaches to the back of the condyle (at A). It serves as an inelastic tether to prevent the disk from displacing anteriorly. multaneously with contact still maintained against the eminence. The uppermost position is also the position at which the medial pole is braced against the medial articular lip (with disk interposed). This relationship stabilizes the midmost position of the mandible in centric relation and prevents any lateral translation from occurring while the condyle-disk assembly is in the uppermost position (Figure 5-6).
