Mounting Plates: An Aid in Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Analysis

Mounting plates play a significant role in the analysis of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. By mounting dental casts on these plates and simulating the patient's occlusion, dental professionals can evaluate the occlusal contacts, identify discrepancies, and assess the impact of malocclusion on the TMJ. This comprehensive analysis aids in developing effective treatment plans for patients suffering from TMJ disorders, ensuring the restoration of optimal joint function and alleviation of associated symptoms.
