A comprehensive introduction to the masticatory system and its relation to dental occlusion

Introduction to the Masticatory System and Dental Occlusion meets the need for a rigorous guide to the masticatory system and how it relates to dental occlusion to aid interventions. The text offers a sound understanding of functioning dental anatomy and the biomechanics that are essential to understanding dental occlusion. It covers all structures required for chewing: jaws and jaw muscles, teeth, joints, and tongue as well as other significant areas including the vascular and nervous systems that supply these structures with blood and stimulation. Beginning with the understanding of these concepts, the author provides further guidance on oral function, esthetics, and alerting patients to potential issues.

Introduction to the Masticatory System and Dental Occlusion readers will also find:

  • A thorough introduction to the basic structure and function of the masticatory system
  • Detailed coverage of subjects including TMJ, mastication muscles, occlusal therapy, and more
  • Images to illustrate key concepts and systems
  • Advice on choosing the correct medical intervention in each case

Introduction to the Masticatory System and Dental Occlusion is ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students for subjects such as masticatory systems, dental anatomy, restorative dentistry, and prosthodontics, as well as for practicing dentists and medical professionals in related fields.
