Occlusion
Welcome

 

The juce in this section provides an introduction to the apparently complicated subject of occlusion. We aim to clear the confusion by presenting a foundation that makes advanced study easy to understand.

We will concentrate on the regular clinical aspects that affect everyday dentistry using a common sense approach.

Occlusion just means the contacts between teeth. This simple definition belies the apparent complexity of the subject, which involves teeth, periodontal ligament, temporo-mandibular joint, muscles and bone all acting as a system in three dimensions.
