In addition to be among the leading causes of many diseases such as sleep apnea and sleep disorders, these diseases have also a direct impact on the stomatognathic
apparatus, composed of several muscles connected to cranio-mandibular structures, to the rachis, to the shoulder girdle and upper limbs.
Formulated in the paper spatial model of the mandible kinematics provides a dentist the qualitatively new information about the disorder having its source within the masticatory organ and about stomatognathic system functioning.
Numerical Modeling in the Diagnosis of Biomechanical Conditions of the Stomatognathic System, Polskie Towarzystwo Inzynierii Biomedycznej, 210p (in Polish).
The fibromatosis may potentially cover the exposed tooth surfaces, thereby hampering the functioning of the stomatognathic
Several studies in the literature investigated the association between otologic symptoms and maxillary anatomical alterations and evaluated possible correlations between tubal dysfunction and the stomatognathic
system [McDonnell et al.
They address neurobiological considerations for occlusal parafunction and temporomandibular disorders, orthopedic considerations in the masticatory system, the anatomical basis of occlusion, the role and evaluation of the muscles of the stomatognathic
system, the effect of occlusal forces on periodontal disease, bite splint therapy, and dentist-ceramist communication.
Stomatognathic dysfunctional symptoms in Saudi Arabian adolescents.
Intra- and interobserver variability in the assessment of signs of disorder in the stomatognathic system.
Epidemiology of functional disturbances and diseases in the stomatognathic system.
After a section on diagnosis, the forces affecting the stomatognathic
system and their control are detailed, with discussion of individual differences and jaw functions, concepts of biomechanics and remodeling, optimal mandibular position, habits of circumoral muscles and myofunctional therapy, chewing and postural habits and occlusal collapse, distortion of face and body and psychologic stress, among other topics.
