Forces during the phase of occlusal contact during chewing and swallowing are surprisingly high (36.2% and 41%), about 40% of the subject's maximum biting force. Previous studies using transducers in fixed partial dentures measured only a portion of the total force and have given the impression that chewing forces are much less than the data reported in this study. The importance of occlusal stability in the intercuspal position is of utmost clinical significance. Steep anterior guidance does… CONTINUE READING
