The aim of this series of papers is to explore the role of occlusion in dental practice. The range of opinion in the dental profession as to the importance of occlusion is enormous. It is very important that the profession in general and practising dentists in particular have a balanced view of occlusion. This is more important than every patient having a balanced occlusion. The fact that the study of occlusion is characterised by extremes makes it confusing and possibly difficult for… 
The restorative management of tooth wear involving the aesthetic zone
TLDR
A systematic approach is described that facilitates the establishment of a clear and appropriate diagnosis when a dentate patient presents with tooth wear involving their aesthetic zone to enable the successful and predictable rehabilitation of the affected areas.
Conformative, Re-organized or
TLDR
This paper aims to help dentists develop their own philosophy of avoiding the 'unorganized approach' by providing techniques which follow a logical sequence.
Quantification of Dental Occlusal Variation: A Review of Methods
TLDR
Methods are described from the literature that measure the location and extent of tooth relations in all three planes of space so that the space-time distributions of occlusalvariations can be known in more detail.
The application of occlusion in clinical practice part 3: practical application of the essential concepts in clinical occlusion
TLDR
Part 1 and 2 of this series of articles addressed the clinical assessment of a patient's occlusal scheme and, where indicated, noted the appropriate Occlusal records required to permit this scheme to be implemented.
Current Trends In Digital Occlusal Analysis - The Definitive Approach
TLDR
There has been a constant quest for developing quicker, better, reliable accurate occlusal indicator for restorative treatment as there are very few dental treatments which do not involve the Occlusal surfaces of teeth.
The application of occlusion in clinical practice part 1: Essential concepts in clinical occlusion
TLDR
The first of this three-part series will focus on the occlusal assessment and the proposed features of the ‘ideal Occlusal scheme’, and the examination of the static and dynamic relationship between occlusion and dynamics.
Verifiable CPD paper: Recording the retruded contact position: a review of clinical techniques
TLDR
This review will describe RCP and consider its importance and use in the restorative dental treatment of the dentate and edentulous subject, followed by recommendations for fixed and removable clinical prosthodontic practice.
Guidelines for occlusion strategy in implant-borne prostheses. A review.
TLDR
The present article reviews occlussal contact designs and offers occlusion strategy guidelines for the main types of implant-borne prostheses.
The Relationship between Static and Dynamic Occlusion in Natural Permanent Dentition: A Descriptive Epidemiological Study. -
TLDR
There is a significant relationship between static and cinematic occlusion: the protection group is mainly attributed to patients with angle class I, while for patients with Angle class II, canine protection is more common.
Occlusal concepts application in resolving implant prosthetic failure: case report.
The prosthetic management of a poor implant treatment is presented in this case report. The recommended occlusion concepts for implant-supported prostheses were applied for the resolution of the
