For many years dentistry has been dominated by prevailing occlusal concepts that were initially presented in the 60s by Ramford and Ash. Despite the lack of evidence for the role of "interferences to centric" and “pterygoid spasms,” these concepts remain at the heart of our dental model. As a result, great confusion has led to the development of occlusal "camps” with belief systems dominating rather than science. This has led to controversy and the prevention of integration of critical muscle and joint concepts into general dentistry. Dr. Glassman removes the controversy and exposes the myths. You and your patients will benefit immediately as the role of function and parafunction and the methods of parafunctional control are thoroughly explored.
