Theories of Occlusion

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Tuesday, January 6, 2009 with 0 comments

A. Semianatomic or anatomic teeth: Is thought to minimize localized stress concentration and lateral dislodging forces by ensuring multiple points of contact, to distribute functional occlusal forces.

B. Lingualized occlusion: Provide limited range of excursive balance and a directing of forces to the lingual side of the lower ridge during working-side contacts. Such concept may minimize horizontal stress and control the leverage induced by eccentric tooth contacts.

C. Neuromuscular: Patients are instructed to chew in centric relation contacts, bilaterally.
