Many philosophies of arranging denture occlusion; No definitive scientific studies Lingualized Occlusion: Contacts on centered on mandibular ridge minimizes. Lingualized Occlusion. If I had to choose the one thing that’s had the greatest effect on the success of the dentures and partial dentures I construct for my patients. Lingualized occlusion represents an established method for the development of functional and esthetic complete denture articulation. Since its introduction, the.

Support Center Support Center. Lower teeth are arranged according ,ingualized maxillary cast of generated path. In this concept, the anterior teeth are arranged according to the requirements of esthetics and phonetics.

Characteristic of this concept is the use of pantographic tracings and the transfer of these recordings to an instrument to eliminate occlusoon potential deflective contacts in the arrangement of posterior teeth.

Pound’s concept[ 1 lingualkzed Maxillary posterior teeth should have sharp palatal cusps which kcclusion occlude with opposing widened central fossae of the mandibular posterior teeth to eliminate the deflective occlusal contacts in processed dentures and the teeth should have gold occlusal inlays ocxlusion maintain vertical dimension linguakized occlusion.

Extreme vertical overlaps producing cuspid guidance are frequently used, resulting in disocclusion of the posterior teeth away from centric occlusion. Various concepts proposed to attain nonbalanced articulation. Ganesh Kumarand Murali Karthik. A method of developing monoplane occlusions. Therefore, the direction of force in that dental arch remains fairly constant.

This series of articles describes about concepts of occlusion in the complete denture, fixed partial denture, and implants. The occlusal plane should evenly divide the space between the upper and lower ridges. Essentials of complete denture prosthodontics. Financial support and sponsorship Nil. There is a tendency of shifting of denture bases on the balancing side [ Figure 1b ]. The complete denture fabrication is preceded till try in and processing of only maxillary denture is done.


The lingualized concept utilizes anatomic teeth for the maxillary denture and modified nonanatomic or semi anatomic teeth for the mandibular denture. Because the neutrocentric technique provides an area of closure and does not lock the mandible into a single position.

Nocturnal occlusal parafunction can be eliminated by removal of the dentures while sleeping, but there is still the problem of parafunction during day time. Open in a separate occlsuion. Indications High priority on esthetics but a nonanatomic occlusal scheme is indicated.

With lingualized occlusions, only the upper lingual cusps occlude in the mandibular central fossa. Protrusion Click here to view. The concept of neutrocentric occlusion as related to denture stability.

Lea and Febiger; The porcelain teeth in occlusal contact will wear very little and tend to maintain a lineal occlusion longer than do plastic teeth. This positioning directed forces perpendicular to the mean osseous foundation plane. Flat planes in all directions with no inclination at all in respect to the underlying denture foundation.

Pivoting in the posterior region of a flat occlusal plane has been used to reduce temporomandibular joint symptoms [ Figure 4a ]. In both situations, a slight compensating occlusal curve will be necessary to achieve continuous posterior contacts anterior to centric relation.

The maxillary incisors should have sufficient vertical overlap to provide separation of the posterior teeth when the incisors are in edge-to-edge relation. Usually, the desired range of lingualized balanced occlusion can be achieved before the anterior teeth make contact.

Thus, the concept of occlusion eliminates any anteroposterior or mediolateral inclines of the teeth and directs the forces of occlusion to the posterior teeth. InGysi introduced the concept of lingualized articulation.

Concepts of occlusion in prosthodontics: A literature review, part II

The anterior vertical overlap is absent to provide noninterception in eccentric movements. This article discusses about the evolution of different concepts of nonbalanced occlusion and occlusal schemes in complete denture occlusion. Conflicts of interest There are no conflicts of interest. Five year cephalometric study of mandibular ridge resorption with different posterior occlusal forms.

Concepts of occlusion in prosthodontics: A literature review, part II

The decision as to whether to locate the lingualizef of occlusiion in the maxillary or mandibular arch depends on the factors of denture stability and esthetics. This concept utilizes a posterior tooth blocks in series of four teeth which were arranged on a flat occlusal plane with a reverse lateral curve and posterior ramp. Therefore, it is ideal for a patient who has resorbed friable ridges with mobile tissue.

Arrange the teeth in central position in reference to the foundation as the tongue will allow, in order to provide greater stability for the denture. This is offsetted by narrowing of the tooth width. Reduced width of the artificial teeth reduces the vertical stresses on the ridge.

Disadvantages Flat premolars may appear less esthetic. Tooth pitch inclination, tilt was corrected by placing the occlusal plane parallel to the underlying ridges and midway between them. There was no compensating curve and no incisal guidance.

Patients were educated not to incise or protrude.

Mohamed IbrahimR. Lingualized occlusion for removable prosthodontics. Forces were centralized without encroachment on the tongue space.
