By Unknown on Sunday, July 6, 2008 with 0 comments

5 advantages of lingualized occlusion:

1. Better adapted to different types of ridges

2. Greater masticatory efficiency

3. Eliminates lateral interferences

4. Maintains esthetics and food penetration

5. Bilateral balance is possible

4 disadvantages of lingualized occlusion:

1. Less masticatory efficiency than balanced occlusion

2. Less resistance of denture base rotation than balanced occlusion

3. May result in increased lateral forces

4. More wear

-the only serious contraindication to lingualized occlusion is flat ridges and severe inter-ridge distance
