DJDs (Degenerative Join Diseases) of the TMJ and their Influence on Premature Wear of the Dentition and the Whole Masticatory System
by: Dr. Alain Aubé

It has now been scientifically demonstrated that a vast majority of the population has some degree of TMJ degeneration. These degenerations create bite changes. When the bite changes, unbalanced occlusal forces occur and very often the masticatory muscles become hyperactive exerting excessive pressure on the teeth, the periodontium, the maxillas and the joints, with the all consequences of premature wear we know may ensue. This lecture/course will explain and illustrate this through a series of case presentations and new scientific data.
