Abstract

Objective: To evaluate whether there is a relationship between occlusion and body posture evaluated using a stabilometric platform. Methods: Observational studies that analyzed the relationship between dental occlusion (changes in mandibular position and/or dental malocclusion) and body posture evaluated with a stabilometric platform in patients older than 13 years without orthodontic or orthopedic intervention and systemically healthy were considered eligible for inclusion. PubMed, EMBASE, Science Direct, LILACS, and Google Scholar databases were searched to obtain articles published from September 2019 up to March 2020. Results: Twelve articles met the inclusion criteria, of which 66.7% showed a relationship between dental occlusion and body posture, and 33.3% found no relationship. The marked heterogeneity between studies did not allow data to be combined for meta-analyses. Conclusion: For the mandibular positions, the postural changes were mainly in the mediolateral direction, while in the malocclusions, they were in the anteroposterior direction.
