Presentation of TMD Cases


The philosopher Karl Popper wrote " Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory nor the problem which it was intended to solve". I feel this applies perfectly to the topic of TMD and occlusion. To say that the teeth play a minor role in the pathogenesis of TMD makes hardly any sense if you look at the interelationship of all the structures of the stomatognathic system. I am aware that the literature supports these findings concerning the occlusion and TMD. However the vast majority of the studies report on the static relationship of the teeth which in no way reflects the true nature of how the system functions. In this presentation I will explain not the static but the dynamics of the stomatognathic system, degenrative joint disease and how this relates to the TMJs and in some instances can be a key factor in the development of TMD. Finally I will justify how orthodontics can prevent TMD by establishing a condyle position in harmony with the teeth.
