Resumen

An extensive conceptual analysis to establish the primary role a forward head posture plays in the appearance of some craniomandibular dysfunctions and internal derangements of the temporomandibular joints, associated to craniocervical postural disturbances. The analysis is based on findings contributed by scientific investigations in the field of dentofacial orthopedics and dysfunction. Special emphasis has been put on the influence of forward head posture on the craniofacial growth as it can determine a morphoskeletal and neuromuscular pattern leading to a dysfunctional condition. A correlation is established between Class II Occlusion, forward head posture, and craniomandibular dysfunction. The concept of craniocervical postural position is defined, as well as its close relation to the mandibular postural position.
