Abstract

This review summarizes the presentations of the night session symposium at the 91st Conference of the Japanese Prosthodontic Society, Niigata, in June, 1994. The symposium focused on the role of occlusion for the etiology in temporomandibular disorders (TMD) which has been controversial because of the lack of scientific evidence for causal relationship. To improve the understanding of TMD, the previously reported findings of the etiology, examination methods, diagnostic classification and effectiveness of treatment for TMD were reviewed. In conclusion, morphological and mechanical factors of occlusion, such as the amount of overbite and overjet, anterior open bite, crossbite, Angle malocclusions, the amount of RCP-ICP slides, and unilateral RCP contacts, which the recent reviews handled, were not sufficient to understand the association between the occlusion and TMD. It was proposed that assessment of occlusion in TMD should be based upon more physiological and biomechanical points of view in the masticatory system.
