Asymmetries in the jaw create tension in the musculature because the muscles try to correct the resulting distortions of the three-dimensional alignment and make torque movements to be able to occlude the teeth. The muscles are placed in a state of constant contraction. These situations require permanent compensation of the neck muscles, to keep the head upright and the eyes level.
Often, contrary to what has always been thought, we have to consider the possibility of having interferences as a consequence, and not as a cause of TMD.
The postural position of the jaw is very important and can manifest itself in the entire posture of the individual.
