Evaluation of the occlusal plane in edentulous patients in relation to maxillomandibular space in Kashmiri Population
The glossary of prosthodontic terms defines occlusal plane as “the average plane established by the incisal and occlusal surfaces of the teeth: it is not a plane but planar mean of curvature of surface.
Aims and Objectives: The study was conducted: To orient the plane of occlusion precisely using hard tissues as reliable, relatively constant references. To relate inclination the plane of occlusion with the maxillary plane and to the maxillomandibular space dimensions
Results: After obtaining signed informed consent, the lateral cephalograms of selected participants were taken in the department of Oral Medicine and Diagnostic Radiology, Government Dental College and Hospital, Srinagar Jammu & Kashmir, India. Tracing of each cephalogram was made using a tracing sheet with a graphite pencil.
Conclusion: A significant association exists between the inclination of the occlusal plane and maxillary plane in relation to maxillomandibular space dimensions.
