L’école myocentrée : état actuel des connaissances

Abstract : Several occlusodontic schools have been clashing for many years. The aim of this thesis is not to compare these different schools, but to focus on the neuromuscular approach to occlusion used by the myocentric school. In order to understand the influence of occlusion on the human body, it is necessary at first to carry out anatomical and physiological reminders of the manducatory apparatus. During the consultation, the detection of clinical signs helps to orientate the diagnosis towards muscular or neuro-musculo-articular pathologies. Electrical neurostimulation brings benefits on the lymphatic and vascular systems, allows the stimulation of endorphins and the proprioceptive deconditioning of the musculature. It inhibits the perception of pain by closing the synaptic gate. The myocentric approach allows leads to the relaxation of the muscles and to record a therapeutic position, which will be validated by an orthotic then by a mock-up. The disappearance of clinical signs confirms the position of reconstruction and allows to duplicate the organization of the occlusion for the prostheses of use.
