Dental malocclusion and body posture

Postural problems have been observed in >90% of cases in subjects with some type of malocclusion. In a dental malocclusion such as a crossbite, functional mandibular asymmetry is detected by the Central Nervous System which will generate muscular compensation at different levels. Initially, the change is functional, but if it is maintained, it may be definitive for later bone development.
