The present study evaluated this relationship both directly and indirectly, by means of asymmetry of bite force and occlusal contact
Ott, Proschel  (1985) found a relationship between occlusal contact
and wedge-shaped defects in posterior teeth.
In the transitional trial period, adjust the occlusal contact
points relationship between the maxillary and mandibular dentition as an anterior-posterior protected occlusion.
For group 1 patients all occlusal contacts
on the functional and nonfunctional cusps as well as on the marginal ridges were reduced by 1 mm by using a diamond bur in a high-speed handpiece with copious water spray.
The occlusal/ palatal ramp was developed on the maxillary denture to guide the mandible into maximum intercuspation, and provide a broader occlusal contact
area, thus achieving correct sagittal relationship, enhancing stability of dentures and improving masticatory abilty.
Bekke et al (1992) showed that occlusal contact
influence muscle activity during mastication.
After confirming the presence of occlusal contact
with articulating paper patients in the OR group had all occlusal contacts
on the functional and nonfunctional cusps as well as on the marginal ridges reduced by 1 mm by using a diamond bur in a high-speed handpiece with copious water spray.
Tooth wear is the non-carious loss of tooth tissue due to attrition erosion or abrasion.1 Attrition is the loss of enamel dentine or restoration by tooth to tooth contact during normal/ para-functional masticatory activities.2 It is located only in occlusal contact
areas and with shiny flat wear facets3 and appears to be a general physiologic phenomenon at all ages.4
After mounting observe the occlusal contact
rela- tionship rotation supra eruption and drifting.
biological complications including dental caries, coronal or radicular abutment fracture, root canal treatment failure, periapical lesions, peri- odontal problems and mechanical failures including occlusal interference, no occlusal contact
, decemen- tation of the prosthesis, esthetic problems, porcelain and metal fractures.
Yuji sato did a modification in christensens method, in situation where the maximum occlusal contact
is not on the cusp tip, thereby its on the slope of the cusp, in that case he build up composite cone to provide stability for the vertical stop.

patterns and the prevalence of non-carious cervical lesions," Journal of Dental Health, vol.
An occlusal splint is a removable device usually made of hard acrylic that fits over the occlusal and incisal surface of the teeth in one arch, creating precise occlusal contact
with the teeth of the opposing arch (5).
(2016) (22) highlighted the relationship between TMD and dental occlusion using the T-Scan III version 8.0 occlusal analysis system to determine the occlusal contact
estimated the occlusal contact
in the intercuspal position by using occlusal registration strips and showed that the number of occlusal contacts
was significantly decreased in patients undergoing OA therapy .
