Abstract


The relationship between some aural symptoms and dental occlusion have been reported, However, the relationship between oto-sclerosis and occlusion has not yet been reported. Occlusal improvement was achieved using the occlusal position correcting therapy on a patient with otosclerosis. Occlusal analysis was performed by mounting dental models on an articulator and identifying a pre-mature occlusal contact on the right second molar artificial teeth and a deviation of the habitual occlusal position from the muscular occlusal position. Occlusal modification was performed to make the habitual occlusal position coincide with the muscular contact position. The persistent tinnitus on the right ear became intermittent. From time to time, the ringing sound of the bell appeared. And the hearing impairment on the right ear was not improved.Keywords: Habitual Occlusal Position; Muscular Occlusal Position; Otosclerosis; Tinnitus
