Biomechanical study of temporomandibular joint on its form and function. Part I: Condyle morphology in frontal section.

Abstract

In this study the mechanisms controlling the biomechanical relationship between form and function in the temporomanidbular joints were investigated using two-dimensional finite element analysis and optimization theory. Factors investigated included morphology and occlusion, the latter being an important attribute of this system. Results indicate that change in frontal condyle head morphology was closely related to the occlusion condition.
