5th International Symposium
Optimal occlusion is relevant to physical, physiologic and biological laws that govern articular and “gneuromuscular” function at all structural levels of the human body as well as the masticatory apparatus. A rigid mechanistic concept of masticatory function is not consistent with generic physiologic knowledge. General laws of homeostasis support the desirability of analysis of maxillo-mandibular posture from optimal muscle relaxation in order to remove the torques, skews, strains and imbalances when establishing a terminal contact position. Dr. Chan will discuss how he approaches and treats his TMJ/CFP patients using scientific methodology when applying comprehensive restorative techniques required to stabilize the dysfunctional masticatory system in the clinical dental practice.
