Abstract

The stomatognathic system is a complex of interacting tissues and organs of the oral cavity and facial cranium that form a functional whole controlled by the central nervous system. Coexisting elements of the system that interact with each other in an abnormal manner lead to dysfunction of the system itself and can cause abnormal functioning of other systems of our body. For a diagnostically favorable and rapid finding of a stable joint position, we often use manual deprogramming methods in dental practice. These are the methods of : "gothic arch", "ambidextrous manipulation", "leaf gauge", "Lucia Jig"(4). In practice, the most favorable methods turn out to be those in which the doctor has the most experience.
