MDOH 5710 - Occlusion & Articulation


Students are presented with descriptions and illustrations of mandibular positions and movements related to guidance by the teeth and joints and to neuromuscular mechanisms underlying mastication and swallowing. Static contacts and pathways from these contacts are presented in lecture and in laboratory exercises. Periodontal response to occlusal forces, both normal and pathologic, are related to cusp-fossa excursions and to occlusal schemes.
