ABSTRACT

‘Temporomandibular disorders’ is a collective term embracing number of clinical problems that involve the masticatory musculature, the temporomandibular joint and occlusion. Decision making in prosthetic dentistry & in the management of patients suffering from temporomandibular disorders is strongly influenced by the clinical & educational background of the dentist.The role of occlusion is often overlooked, minimized, or ignored in many dental practices. Many dentistsfind it difficult to understand occlusal concepts, or perhaps cannot fathom where or how to begin tofind it difficult to understand occlusal concepts, or perhaps cannot fathom where or how to begin toincorporate occlusal technologies into their busy practices. Implementing an easy-to-learn and easy-to-usebiometric approach gives clinicians a powerful tool for incorporating occlusal analysis into their practices.Thebiometric approach providesrecordable and reproducible objective data, which can lead to improved clinical results and fewer failures.Requiring far less clinical chair time, the biometric approach gives dentists the critical information theyneed to create harmony of the teeth, muscles, and joint complex. Therefore in this review article we discussed the working of this emerging system and its application in the clinical practice.
