Maintaining a Healthy Functioning Masticatory System Through Orthodontic Therapy

Orthodontic therapy routinely changes the patient's occlusal condition and this can significantly modify masticatory function. It is important that the goals of these therapies include the development of a sound relationship between the new occlusal position and the functional position of the temporomandibular joints. A discussion will be presented regarding the important functional features of the temporomandibular joints and their relationship to the occlusal position. Controversies regarding the correct joint position will be highlighted along with a discussion of when the occlusal condition is important in TMD.
