Anatomic Harmony

Anatomic harmony means that all the interrelated parts of the masticatory system (the muscles, joints, and teeth needed for chewing) must be in structural equilibrium. This requires harmony of form:

  • Between the condyle, the disk, and the musculature, and the teeth
  • Between anterior (front) teeth, the lips, and the tongue
  • Between posterior (back) teeth, the lips, and the tongue
  • Between the lower teeth and the upper teeth.
  • Between the teeth and the face.
