Langkah pertama penatalaksanaan klinis dari gangguan temporomandibula (GTM) adalah membedakan sumber
masalah, mengklasifikasi menjadi masalah dari otot atau sendi, yang telah dipahami menjadi proses yang penting.
Meskipun mekanisme yang tepat untuk gejala atau patologi kondisi tersebut sampai saat ini belum diklarifikasi,
parafungsi atau hiperfungsi otot telah disadari memainkan peranan penting dalam etiologi GTM. Pembebanan
mekanis yang berlebih ke sendi temporomandibula (STM) telah dilaporkan menjadi salah satu faktor yang mungkin
menyebabkan perkembangan osteoartritis. Gaya-gaya ini dapat dikenakan melalui parafungsi mandibula seperti
bruksima saat tidur atau kebiasaan mengkertakkan gigi. Untuk kontrol klinis dari bruksisma saat tidur, telah
dikembangkan sebuah piranti palatal yang tebal yang menutupi palatum dan tidak menutupi permukaan oklusal.
Dalam kajian pustaka ini juga telah dibahas mengenai implikasi klinis dari hubungan antara oklusi, mastikasi danbruksisma.

The first step of clinical management of the temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is to distinguish the origin of
problem, to classify into myogeneous and joint problems, which have been regarded to be an important process.
Although the precise mechanisms for the symptoms or pathology of these conditions have not yet been clarified,
muscular parafunction or hyperfunction has been regarded to play an important role in the etiology of TMD. Excess
mechanical loading to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) has been reported to be one of the possible causes for the
development of osteoarthritis. These forces might be exerted through mandibular parafunctions like sleep bruxism or
tooth contacting habit. For clinical control of sleep bruxism, a thick palatal appliance which fills the palate and does
not cover the occlusal surface have been developed. In this review article, clinical implication of the relationshipbetween occlusion, mastication and bruxism have also been discussed.
Key words: occlusion, balancing-side, mediotrusive, TMJ, epidemiology
