    Please tell me where is the exact position of the Bennett angle? If possible, I would be appreciated to see the diagram of its position.
    Thank you very much of your help.

    The Bennett angle is described by the antero-medial movement of the orbiting aka balancing aka non-working condyle when viewed from above. To my knowledge there isn't really a particular position of the Bennett angle. Hope this helps.

    This is from mosby Pros book:
    the angle formed between the sagittal plane and the average path of the advancing condyle as viewed in the horizontal plane during lateral mandibular movements
