The teaching of clinical maxillomandibular relationships is an area of weakness in dental school curricula. Most difficulties arise when a reference position is required to adjust or reconstitute the maximum intercuspation of the dentition. The dentist-derived concept of the centric maxillomandibular relation position is used to solve this problem. There is(More)
A cross-sectional study of the contacts in maximum intercuspation was undertaken using a method to identify occlusal contacts, which is indicated as satisfactory by modern research. The aims were to describe in subjects with normal dentitions and normally functioning masticatory systems: (a) the general distribution of contacts; (b) the numbers in the(More)
Marks are placed on facial skin in clinical dentistry to indicate the position of more deeply placed landmarks or reference points. In this study the movement of the transverse horizontal axis skin points overlying the craniomandibular articulation were observed and quantified. The time taken for the skin displacement to occur when the posture changed(More)
The authors conducted research to determine the structural relationships of the craniomandibular articulation that resulted when a mandibular reference position was established. A noninvasive clinical method was used to identify and record centric maxillomandibular relation in normal subjects and a suitable reference position in subjects with derangements(More)
