class I occlusion
The mesiobuccal cusp of the mandibular molar occludes in the embrasure between the maxillary premolar and maxillary molar.
class II occlusion
The mesiobuccal cusp of the mandibular molar occludes inthe central fossa of the maxillary first molar.
class II occlusion
The mesiobuccal cusp of the mandibular first molar is aligned with the buccal groove of maxillary first molar.
class II occlusion
The distolingual cusp of the maxillary first molar occludes in the central fossa of the mandibular first molar.
class III occlusion
The distobuccal cusp of the mandibular first molar is situated in the embrassure between the maxillary second premolar and first molar.
class III occlusion
The mesiobuccal cusp of the maxillary first molar is situated over the embrassure between the mandibular first and second molars.
class III occlusion
The mesiiolingual cusp of the maxillary first molar is situated in the mesial fossa of the mandibular second molar.
class I occlusion
The mesiolingual cusp of the maxillary first molar is situated in the central fossa area of the mandibular first molar.
class I occulusion
The mesiobuccal cusp of the maxillary first molar is aligned directly over the buccal groove of the mandibular first molar.
functional cusps
buccal cusps of mandibular posterior teeth and lingual cusps of maxillary posterior teeth
functional cusps
they occulude with the opposing central fossa areas or the marginal ridges of the opposing teeth
functional cusps
these cusps are responsible for maintaining the distance between the maxilla and the mandible
functional cusps
these cusps are broad and rounded
non-functional cusps
buccal cusps of maxillary posterior teeth and lingual cusps of mandibular teeth
non-functional cusps
these cusps are relatively sharp
non-fxn cusps
major role is to minimize tissue impingement, prevent cheek and tongue biting, and to maintain the bolus of food ont he occlusal table for mastication
cusp-marginal ridges occulusion
the occulusal contacts are located on the marginal ridges as well as in the occulusal fossa
cusp-marginal ridges occulusion
this occlusal relation is often referred to as a tooth to two teeth occlusion
cusp-fossa occlusion
the occlusal contacts are located in the fossa only
cusp-fossa occlusion
this occlusal relation is often referred to as a tooth to tooth occlusion
interarch tooth alignment
relationship fo the teeth in one arch to another
occlusal relationship of the teeth when the maxillary and mandibular arches come into contact
rotational movement
when mouth opens and closes around a fixed point or axis within the condyle.
translational movt
when the mandible moves forward as in protrusion
interarch tooth alignment
occlusal relationship of the teeth when the maxillary and mandibular arches come into contact
