THOMPSON JR: CONCEPTS REGARDING THE FUNCTION OF THE STOMATOGNATHIC SYSTEM.
They address neurobiological considerations for occlusal parafunction and temporomandibular disorders, orthopedic considerations in the masticatory system, the anatomical basis of occlusion, the role and evaluation of the muscles of the stomatognathic system, the effect of occlusal forces on periodontal disease, bite splint therapy, and dentist-ceramist communication.
After a section on diagnosis, the forces affecting the stomatognathic system and their control are detailed, with discussion of individual differences and jaw functions, concepts of biomechanics and remodeling, optimal mandibular position, habits of circumoral muscles and myofunctional therapy, chewing and postural habits and occlusal collapse, distortion of face and body and psychologic stress, among other topics.
