Dysfunctional deviations such as dysfunctional swallowing and chewing manifest as transverse arch discrepancies giving rise to positional asymmetry of the condyles and glenoid fossae with a more or less significant skeletal impact. This results almost inevitably in asymmetric occlusion in the sagittal dimension. Drawing on clinical cases, we will show which treatment strategies to adopt and which occlusal criteria to observe for finishing and stability.
