One of the morphological parameters of TMJ is measuring thickness of the roof of the glenoid fossa, which is, in radiologic analysis, indirectly related to ZACD presence (2,3).
Furthermore, the acromial coverage provided by the variable acromial length has been theorised to increase or decrease the size of the deltoid moment arm, thus causing a decentralization of the deltoid force vector on the rotational centre of glenoid fossa (Moor et al., 2014a; Viehofer et al.).
In this scientific perspective, this paper analyzes different design factors affecting contact stresses at the TMJ prosthesis interface (i.e., the contact interface between the mandibular and the glenoid fossa components), which are consequently involved in their deterioration and final failure.
