Postulating that biologic equilibrium of the masticatory system must be a fundamental concern of all restorative dentists, the author hopes to sidestep controversy by presenting a scientific and functional guide to the masticatory system. Key conceptual and diagnostic issues - such as maxillomandibular relations and movement, use of articulators, and differential diagnosis of maxillofacial pain - serve as the foundation for the following chapters, which address clinical aspects of occlusal treatment: diagnosis and treatment protocol, fabrication of bite splints, treatment of temporomandibular disorders, the creation of functional restorations, occlusal adjustment, and treatment of malocclusion. This book should be required reading for all clinicians, so they may understand the effects of their treatment on the patient's occlusion.
