An in vitro study of the influence of occlusal scheme on the pressure distribution of complete denture supporting tissues.


This study compared lingualized occlusion and completely balanced occlusion using a simulation device. Sixteen pressure transducers were placed in the simulated residual ridge area supporting the test dentures. Lingualized occlusion was found to transfer stresses from the occluding side to the opposite, nonworking side to stabilize the mandibular denture.
