Complete denture occlusion – the essentials

Making complete dentures in the patient’s home mandibular hinge position, otherwise known as centric relation, is crucial and an important factor in achieving success, particularly with flat ridges.

If the dentures become loose during function, they can be seated back into place by gently biting together.

Balanced occlusion/articulation is a luxury, being almost impossible to achieve clinically and is very rarely necessary.
