Humbled by TMJ and function
Most of the times when treatment planning our patients, we put a lot of effort into esthetic considerations and achievement of class I occlusion. However, quite many patients have issues regarding the functionality of their masticatory organ which have to be taken into consideration beyond the esthetic aspect. A thorough analysis of the TMJ, the masticatory organ and its functions can reveal often very useful information regarding possible hidden problems that can appear during or after treatment and can guide treatment direction better. The complex approach to TMJ oriented orthodontics is much more difficult and time consuming but can highlight some do’s and don’ts, some of which will be briefly presented.
