Posture and Occlusion, is there a true relationship

The body consists of an assemblage of interconnected systems with complex and incompletely understood

mechanisms of interactions. How the body maintains posture requires the integration of postural captors input, central nervous system interpretation and efferences to stand. The stomatognathic system represents

one of those postural captors systems and its influence persists to be unknown, perhaps even controversial.

The clinical integration of biometrics allows the study of posture and occlusion, providing some answers to whether or not they are related.
