Remounting procedures for complete dentures: a study of occlusal contacts by the photocclusion technique
Polyzois / Karkazis / Zissis
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the number and intensity of occlusal contacts by using the photocclusion technique in three groups receiving complete dentures with different remounting procedures. Occlusal recordings were taken with a wafer at the delivery of dentures and 1 week later. Clinical remounting seemed to be superior to laboratory remounting in the number and intensity of occlusal contacts developed during 1 week's use of dentures. Laboratory remounted dentures presented no specific advantages over dentures that had received no laboratory or clinical remount.
