Correct occlusal relationships are part of the successful prosthetic treatment of edentulous patients. Occlusal checking should be performed via a remount procedure because denture base materials and fabrication procedures cannot provide dimensionally accurate complete dentures. Occlusal errors caused by the adjustment of denture bases to the denture foundation after a certain period of wearing can also be corrected by means of remounting. The following remount procedures for complete dentures are described: fabrication of transfer casts, transfer of a maxillary denture with a facebow, centric relation record, and mounting of dentures with transfer casts in an articulator with a dental stone. Deflective occlusal contacts of denture teeth in centric occlusion can be eliminated by selective grinding and by tooth-guided excursive movements. In complete denture treatment, priority is given to anterior/canine-guided occlusion. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2007;27:181192.)
