Occlusal scheme for removable prosthetics – Denture occlusion
Denture occlusion, like teeth occlusion, is complex and confusing. Fortunately, opinions are not as strong and there is more of a consensus but still not a definitive right way.
Buccalized occlusion – only mandibular facial functional cusps Shirani 2014 JPD found might be better patient satisfaction but only 15 patients
Lingualized occlusion – only maxillary lingual functional cusps – max high degree tooth (eg 33°) against mand 0-22° in a mortar and pestle arrangement. There is a little denture evidence this is superior as far as patient perception is, but much easier and little evidence worse either.
