[Growth of the facial skeleton and biomechanics of the stomatognathic system].

Biomechanical analysis of the stomatognathic system yields that the linkage between posterior and anterior guidance can be modelled by a link quadrangle (throttle crank) with closed linkage. Within this gear system the biochemical ideal position of the couple-line (functional length of the mandible) possesses a special meaning in centric occlusion: Along… (More)
