The BiteFX Blog for All Things Relating to Occlusion

A First Step Towards Understanding Occlusion

Posted by Doug Brown on Tue, Oct 11, 2011 @ 17:10 PM

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?
