Occlusion in prosthodontics

Posted on 6/5/2023 by Dr. Castellon
Occlusion in prosthodonticsThis mainly involves the relationship between the maxillary and mandibular teeth at rest and in function. This is a topic that often leaves dental students and even some qualified dentists scratching their heads, and for that reason.

Occlusion is frequently overlooked when it comes to providing patients with dental restorations. This mainly affects the alignment of teeth and jaw. This contact determines the functional relationship of teeth. Effects or harm caused to either of these parts our PR actioners.

Effects of occlusion

Being able to speak properly is another major activity that depends on dental occlusion. In case you have some alterations in the occlusion, the condition is referred to as malocclusion. It can affect the look of your face and can cause dental diseases and speech problems. It may also lead to problems like temporomandibular joint disease.

Occlusions to certain ages may lead to trauma. Trauma remains an important concept in dentistry. Traumatic occlusion affects the biological system through a series of events that induces an aseptic inflammatory response and bone resorption. Clinical evidence of these biological events is present in the form of active traumatic lesions or adaptive mechanisms. The new VDO was tested with mockups, temporary restorations, or removable appliances. The patients were followed up for at least one year after the delivery of final restorations. Clinical variables were collected retrospectively, such as the presence of referred self-reported bruxism and temporomandibular joint or muscle symptoms before treatment, an extension of the dental arches, increase in VDO, restorative materials, and functional complications.

Statistically significant differences were reported among the groups for functional complications. Functional and prosthetic complications after the VDO increase were not frequent. Functional complications were mainly noticed in group C but usually were no longer evident after 2 weeks. No significant differences are between groups in terms of prosthetic complications and self-reported bruxism.
