Abstract

The subject of occlusion has been deemphasized by academia over the last 30 years. This marginalization in turn has negatively impacted recent graduates who are largely unfamiliar with the use of occlusal adjustment by selective reshaping as a treatment modality. Use of proper occlusal therapy enables clinicians to more effectively help patients recover from parafunctional wear of the anterior and posterior teeth. In addition, familiarity with this field enhances the correction of progressive posterior and anterior reverse articulations. This article aims to highlight the importance of occlusal principles in treatment planning. In addition, we illustrate the benefits of occlusal adjustment by using a conservative technique, selective reshaping, as an option to correct anterior reverse articulation in a 20-year-old patient. The knowledge of occlusal principles enhances diagnosis of malocclusion in the development of a treatment plan. When properly employed, the technique of occlusal adjustment by selective reshaping may be used to correct an adaptive anterior reverse articulation with a high degree of predictability for select patients.
