Occlusion for Maxillary Dentures Opposing Osseointegrated Mandibular Prostheses

Denissen/Kalk/van Waas/van Os


PMID: 8297454

This paper presents a combination of several occlusal concepts designed to contribute to the successful use of maxillary dentures in opposition to osseointegrated mandibular prostheses. To ensure a positive outcome when designing such an occlusion, three factors must be considered: patient satisfaction, maxillary anterior bone preservation, and mandibular arch shortening. It is recommended that for centric occlusion the molars have a lingual contact occlusion, the premolars have a buccal contact occlusion, and the anterior teeth have an open occlusal relationship. For an eccentric occlusion, a balanced articulation is favored instead of mutually protected occlusion.
