Occlusion... most dentists know the word, but struggle to fully understand it. What is it? How do we record it? Do we recreate? Do we make a new one?
All these questions are nearly asked on a daily basis
Would you like to have the answer to all of this and more? Dr Riaz Yar is here to save the day and de-mystify this elusive topic. Our current concepts are primarily based on the use of an articulator and facebow. We have simply tried to create more complex systems such as the Denar Cadiax, Sicat Function, which provide values that populate the articulator best articulator is the HUMAN. We also use Centric relation as our default position but is this correct? We will discuss Canine Guidance and its relevance in mastication and is this a “Myth”.
