Introduction to the Concept: Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion – Level 1

For years the human being has being trying to make the analysis of the function based on artificial movements or under the influence of manipulation to force and believe in a hinge axis rotation.
The real organic movements is a compensatory reaction between the glenoid fossa and the eminence into the condyle as a result of the dynamics of the cervical spine and not only the condyle as a unique mobile component into the functional system. After hundreds of cases of kinematic studies utilizing advanced jaw trackers that allowed to visualize the CBCT’s in motion , we can see that many of these concepts that became dogmas are unique movements for each individual. The concept of Biofunctional Dynamics are a combination of the concepts of Professor Dr. Mariano Rocabado law of the 50-50 in conjunction with physiological concepts of muscle balance, joint decompression and occlusal stability.
This part of the lecture will also cover the different factors that influence mandibular trajectories taking as a consideration internal joint deraignment, postural problems, muscle disharmony , facial asymmetries, and occlusal interferences.
