The Importance of Occlusion
Occlusion is defined as the way in which the teeth come in contact with each other while biting. This affects the movements of the jaws and can lead to significant problems where there are inconsistencies and discrepancies. Occlusion mechanisms are analyzed during the bite and excellent care is given when designing the treatment.
Analog or digital dental models are mounted on adjustable articulators where recordings of jaw movements allow the study and detailed analysis of individualized mouth kinesiology. By adjusting occlusal equilibration during prosthetic restoration ensures balance of occlusion, neuromuscular mechanisms and muscle balance, which is necessary for harmonious function. In many cases, the already existing configuration is copied on the new prosthetic work placed in the mouth, but when this creates a problem a new, more functional scheme is created. The procedure is very technical and demanding for you and the dentist.
