Occlusal accuracy in restorative dentistry: the role of the clinician in controlling clinical and laboratory procedures
Warren / Capp
This paper describes the clinical and laboratory stages necessary to ensure the occlusal precision of fixed restorations. The important diagnostic stages, including elimination of mandibular dysfunction, the occlusal analysis and waxing of diagnostic casts, and the diagnostic use of provisional restorations, are outlined. The importance of having the clinician control all stages of laboratory work, including die trimming, mounting working casts on an articulator, the determination of both anterior and posterior tooth form, and the final occlusal adjustment of the restorations, is emphasized.
