Recontouring the existing natural teeth to produce an uniform occlusal plane and establishment of balanced occlusion can reduce the incidence to some extent.
Artificial teeth should be precisely set on the crest of the residual alveolar ridge or slightly lingual to it and a balanced occlusion should be established to reduce the frequency of denture failure.
Lateral guidance can be established by canine guided occlusion, group function and bilateral balanced occlusion. Canine guided occlusion is superior to the other because it is easier to establish anatomically, acceptable and reduces lateral stresses on posterior teeth and ridges.
A balanced occlusion in natural dentition with normal periodontium is difficult to find.
Further work by other investigators resulted in balanced occlusion being replaced with unilateral balanced occlusion, otherwise known as 'group function'.
This study was done to compare the balanced occlusion and canine guided occlusion among complete denture wearers by assessment of patient satisfaction.
The Von Spee's Curve and Wilson's curve are both important for balanced occlusion and functional occlusion, which provides bilateral, simultaneous, and equal occlusal contacts.
The objective of this study was to compare the masticatory performance with bilateral balanced occlusion and lingualized occlusion in complete denture patients reporting to Armed Forces Institute of Dentistry Pakistan.
The objective of the study was to compare the masticatory efficiency with balanced occlusion and lingualized occlusion in complete denture wearers.
