Abstract

Introduction: Function generating bite is an individualized functional appliance made from acrylic resin
comprised of several components namely: SS bite blocks, buccal shields, expansion coil and palatal button.
This appliance enables teeth reposition entirely based on the temoporomandibular joint physiological
condition and avoiding cups-to-cusp misalignment. This is due to the fact that the SS bite block allows open
contact in the posterior region to open the mandible and regulate/reposition the mandible in three different
planes during orthodontic movement. One of the vital mechanisms of bite block is occlusal plane leveling
and dental arch parallelism to prevent the occurrence of dental trauma. Method: In this systematic review,
article search was performed using Google Search and Pubmed. Articles published from 2000 and 2020
were included. Seven articles were found which include: 7 articles from electronic search and 0 articles from
manual search, 7 articles were screened, 1 article was excluded and 6 articles were included for feasibility
test and 6 complete articles were included. Results: There were 6 articles on functional generating bite that
can correct malocclusion whilst increasing the masticatory function. Conclusion: Function generating bite
is not only able to correct malocclusion but can also have an effect on mastication, hence this appliance can
be used as a therapeutic tool for masticatory function in children during growth and development.
