Sammanfattning

Different opinions have been presented about associations between TMD and Malocclusion. The aim of the present review was first of all to analyze the concepts of TMD and occlusion/malocclusion, and then to discuss any association between them. The reported prevalence of signs and symptoms of TMD and incidence of malocclusion vary greatly, due to variations in number and age of the subjects and diagnostic critera. Another problem is the difficulty in defining symptoms and signs qualitatively (mild, moderate, severe). Occlusion as well as malocclusion is changing during the years of growth and development, and functional aspects of occlusion neither are consistent. Thus, registrations of TMD and malocclusion have to fulfill special criteria in studies with the aim to investigate any association between them. The present critical review will indicate that significant association exist between moderate / severe signs of TMD and unilateral functional crossbite, anterior open bite, large maxillary overjet (>6mm), and Angle Class III cases. Indication for orthodontic treatment of these anomalies is a question left open for a future paper.
