    the dental anatomy section of the denta decks is excelent,i recommend you to study the occlusion in kaplan,you will be able to understand it thouroughly.

    A dentoform, a mirror and a friend that models for you. Assuming both you and your friend wore braces in the past.

    Dental Anatomy, physiology and occlusion by Wheelers i

    Its a good book for the morphology but there isnt a lot on the occlusion just a little on lat and protusive movements and relations.But i like it for the morphology

    well looks like my post has gone waste.....I know I have not been able to write about cuspal relations during the lateral movements......but thats because I have not been able to get Dawson....and I don't want to write wrong or half way things.....not a single person recommending my tutorial....what a waste of time and energy!!!!!!!!!!!! :( :thumbdown:

    Hey buddy,
    Plz don't be disheartened.We all appreciate ur altruistic gesture of offering ur own tutorial.That's very nice of u...but plz try to put up it in the sticky 'Tutorial' thread Henna put for good.It makes it quite easy for the newbies to access it n also for anyone.buddy....plz don't feel bad for not putting up that cuspal relations.....u don't owe anybody,but u r just trying to help others by sharing what u compiled.we know that u'll come up with that tutorial sometime later....even if u can't that's okay,plz don't feel sad for that.
    So take it easy buddy and study well.....Good luck :luck: Cheers....take care :)

    Hi GPG,
    I saw your editorial in sticky and it really helped.I pretty much understood about the working side and non working side movements with arrows.

    I am very confused regarding such movement like when maxi or mandi teeth move in lateral movements which cusps which contact or pass bet which teeth , which is the best way to determine such things.any help is appreciated i m very confused

    in an ideal intercuspal position, when the mandible makes a right lateral excursion, mesiolingual cusp of permanent maxillary right first molar opposes the
    1. sulcus bet mesiofacial and distofacial cusps of mandi first molar
    2 sulcus bet distofacial and distal cusps of mandi first molar
    3. embrassure bet mandi first molar and mandi second pre molar
    4. sulcis bet lingual cusps of mandi first molar
    5. embrassure bet mandi first and second molar

    Thanks in advance
    Vij

    I'd like to try to explain, but please for all of u I need feedback from u guys if it's OK/Bad what I'm saying ;
    First try to form your hand as a claw, one facing down as would be maxillary molars and one hand facing up as would be mandibular molars.
    Now put them together.
    Remember the upper claw overhangs the lower claw and position it half way distally. So upper claw halfway overlap and halfway distal from the lower claw.
    Second, identify in Intercuspal Position where would meet with the opposite tooth.
    In this case I believe the mesiolingual cusp of right first molar meets in the central fossa of opposite jaw same tooth.
    This is the point from u r moving.
    Next try to move your lower claw to the right as right mandibular movement but remember the same side will only be rotating the opposite side will also be translating.
    Then try to figure out where the mesiolingual cusp will go.

    I ran out of space.
    So I think the answer is C., that will go beetwen the mandibular lingual sulcus. :cool: :cool: :cool:
