Articulation teeth

Articulation of teeth - the ratio of dental rows when the movements of the lower jaw, related to nibble food, chewing, swallowing, speech. The gnashing of teeth every tooth upper and lower jaw has contact with the antagonists. Chewing teeth on the upper jaw are curved, bent down, chewing teeth on the lower jaw is in a concave curve. The curvature of the location of the teeth ensures permanent contacts - the articulation between anthonynewsome teeth when chewing food.
The location of chewing teeth is in interdependence with the structure temporomandibular joint. In violation of this relationship is reduced chewing efficiency. Incorrect articulation of teeth may be the cause of anomalies of the bite (see).

Articulation of the teeth (lat. articulus - articulation) - the ratio of dental rows when the movements of the lower jaw, related to nibble food, chewing, swallowing, speech, etc. Diversity of these movements is due to the interaction of the muscles that move the lower jaw in different directions, and also the device of temporomandibular joint, allowing along with the rotation of the joint heads of relatively free movement in their joint dimples. Chewing movements of the lower jaw are directly dependent on the height, tilt or rotate articulating the teeth of the severity of bumps on the chewing surfaces of lateral teeth and the degree of overlap of the upper front teeth. Usually the depth of joint hole corresponds to the height of bumps lateral teeth and the extent of cutting overlap, which promotes the correct articulation of the teeth during chewing. In violation of this relationship is reduced chewing efficiency. Incorrect articulation of teeth may be the cause of malocclusion (see)associated with a shift of the lower jaw. The starting point for all movements of the lower jaw and articulation of teeth is a physiological rest of masticatory muscles, which they are in one equalised condition, and between the tooth rows have slit width of 0.5 to 2 mm the data take into account during the determination of the bite in prosthetics people, without articulating the teeth (see dentures).
