The negative interference of the stomatognathic system on body posture is well known. Static posture regulation is given by the Tonic Postural System: a closed cybernetic system that regulates basic muscle tone, through its receptors (proprioception), in charge of the neuromuscular balance necessary for the body's harmony. The main receptors of this system are: Oculomotor system sistema, foot support and vestibule. Their main function is that of transferring environmental information surrounding the body, information that the nervous system then elaborates a response to. Unfortunately our central computer (Central Nervous System) has no way of knowing if the information is correct or not. The C.N.S. merely reacts to any information, however when this information is incorrect these reactions lead to chronic illnesses. The stomatognathic system can be out of sync when the jaw position is incorrect, generally due to dental malocclusion. In such situation, the oculomotor system is the main one to be affected (one of the body's main receptors), along with the vestibular system, in charge of balance, and the cervical spine, creating postural problems. It is for this very reason that the stomatognathic system is considered a postural disturber; the M.P.R. (Myofunctional Postural Rehabilitation) takes these phenomenon into account, and has made it the foundation in the development of B.E.D. (Body Equilibrium Device) that allows to cancel the negative effect of the masticatory system.
