This book and DVD companion describe and explain major findings of a 22-year active research era. For the first time, a clear understanding of how people use their teeth during chewing is related to the graphic jaw movement recordings used for designing and adjusting the condylar controls of articulators. It welcomes the renewed interest in natural tooth form of the posterior teeth pertinent to the location of the forces generated within the chewing cycle and the stability of the joints. It supports the proprioceptive and esthetic role of the anterior teeth. Over 200 illustrations including patient treatment examples.
The 2-hour DVD, which supplements material in the text, relates total jaw movement to both anterior and posterior teeth building a foundation for understanding the principles of occlusion and reasons for restoring the teeth to natural, esthetic form.
