Introduction to the Concept: Biofunctional Dynamic Occlusion – Level 1

Buy tickets

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.
