Here’s an interesting article written for Dentistry Today last year (2010). It presents the three golden rules of occlusion – rules that are accepted by all parties whatever their particular occlusal slant may be. This is a great article for anyone wanting to cut through the confusion and establish a basic understanding of occlusion; an understanding that they can start putting into practice almost immediately.
For those who understand occlusion well, it would be good if you could add your comments – for example, do you agree that the gnathological approach is “incredibly meticulous and complicated” and/or that the natural bite approach is “overly simplified and imprecise”?
Come back and add your comments when you’ve read “The Three Golden Rules of Occlusion”.
Having read the article:
- Do you think these three golden rules are indeed the golden rules?
- Are you ready to learn more about occlusion?
- How would you suggest someone learn how to put these golden rules into practice?
