Dental occlusion/temporomandibular joint and general body health

Dental occlusion/temporomandibular joint and general body health
During the treatment of symptoms originating from disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and occlusion, it was found that restoring the TMJ to its normal condition resulted in a change of general body health. In most cases, this change was for the better. Owing to similar reports, a connection between TMJ status and general body health was therefore hypothesised. However, the mechanism of this relationship remains unclear.


In this article, the relationships between dental occlusion/TMJ status and general body health are reviewed with reference to peer-reviewed papers. A conceptual theory is proposed that may explain this mechanism.

TMJ and myofascial pain
Dental occlusion is the relationship between the maxillary and mandibular teeth when they approach each other. The TMJ is the joint of the jaw, which is unique in that it is the only bilateral joint that crosses the midline. As the treatment of dental diseases aims to achieve harmony within the entire stomatognathic system, teeth could be literally considered to be a set of gears anchored in bone, while the upper and lower jaws are attached to each other by the TMJ.
