dc.description.abstractOne of the goals of restorative treatment is maintenance and/or reestablishment of a good dental occlusion when the treatment is completed.1,2 Therefore, restorative treatment should be aimed at the achievement of smooth unhindered mandibular movements during function. The outcome should not result in an occlusal interference, nor should it lead to generation of excessive force on the teeth, the periodontal apparatus or the temporomandibular joints (TMJs).3,4 All members of the masticatory system should work in harmony and accommodate the changes in occlusal morphology of the finished restoration well.4 Therefore, dentists must have a sound knowledge of dental occlusion and masticatory systems. This article provides clarification of the basic principles of dental occlusion, as well as an overview of this subject area, which is vital for every dental student and dentist. To avoid confusion, the terms and definitions of the Glossary of Prosthodontics5 are used.
