    In the ideal intercuspal relation, the lingual cusp of the maxillary second premolar contacts the:
    a.distal fossa of the mandibular second premolar
    b.mesial marginal ridge of the mandibular first molar
    c.distal marginal ridge of the mandibular second molar
    d.distal marginal ridge of the mandibular first premolar

    Whats the answer and why? its between choice A and B. I thought it was B but it says here its A from the study guide. What do you think?

    hey the ans is B . for sure ....
    acc to the rule , the supporting cusps has to contact the marginal ridges n lingual of max cusps are considered the working cusps.
    I know many books do give distal fossa as the ans ...but i am sure B is the ans
