Attention was given to the Phase II facets because these are created at the greatest point of intercuspation
and, therefore, should provide the most inclusive representation of the diet.
All patients were informed to bite until the maximum intercuspation
was achieved and their lips in a relaxed position during the capture.
Therefore, leveling COS during orthodontic treatment is recommended for good intercuspation
To detect such interferences, occlusal devices that promote muscle reprogramming are useful, because they allow you to check dental contact without adapted mandibular deviations to achieve the maximum habitual intercuspation
(Zuccolotto et al.
The Lucia jig not only eliminates any type of occlusal interference that may cause mandibular deviation of the centric relation (CR) for maximum habitual intercuspation
(MHI) but also reduces the effect of muscular hyperactivity.
A low or medium viscosity polyether material is injected in the perforations and the patient is instructed to bite in maximum intercuspation
until the full setting.
The dentist then scans the opposing arch and then the buccal occlusal surfaces with the patient in maximal intercuspation
The SP does not coincide with maximally obtainable intercuspation
, and it has been argued that the discrepancy between intercuspal position (ICP) and SP may induce physical strain in muscles and joints.
Molar and canine relationship and dental midlines coincidence or non coincidence was recorded from the study casts when these were in maximum intercuspation
The possibility of maxillary growth influencing mandibular growth and vice versa by occlusal intercuspation
has been described.
In simple terms, if the occlusal forces in maximum intercuspation
are unevenly distributed around the arch, tooth movement will most likely occur.
Lack of occlusal stability (problems of intercuspation
or posterior support) was consistently related to marginal association values, as well as to SSTMDs (OR: 1.
