  • mandible
  • For these two distinct reasons the dentist needs to study and fully understand the normal function of the TMJoints, understand how the mandible rests against the cranium in a most favourable position, and of course how occlusion and any dental prosthetic restorations should be adjusted without jeopardising the stability of the stomatognathic system.

  • course
  • This two hour course clarifies many of the common myths of occlusion that is being taught and provides the ability to implement the reality based concepts to improve one's ability to help each and every patient. (dentaltown.com)

  • Boaz attributes myopia to degeneration (self-domestication: p. 179) which is an old and disproven genetic etiology for both visual and dental anomalies (Corruccini, 1999), yet these anomalies are much closer to the "norm" for modernized people than to being an aberration. (wikipedia.org)
