Reproducibility of habitual intercuspation in vivo


Jaschouz, S; Mehl, A (2014). Reproducibility of habitual intercuspation in vivo. Journal of Dentistry, 42(2):210-218.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate how reproducible individuals find their habitual intercuspation. METHODS: A new type of highly accurate measuring procedure was involved using an intraoral optical scanning device (Cerec Bluecam). First, a pilot test investigated the accuracy of the procedure within a standardized setting. With regard to the in vivo study, fifteen participants with full dentition were selected. For each of these individuals, eight scans were taken both in the morning and in the afternoon. Furthermore, during each session, scans were taken both in horizontal and upright position. In order to compare this to ubiquitous used processes, plaster replicas of five individuals were investigated as well. The scans were analysed, and the differences in the position of the lower jaw were calculated by a specialized superimposition program (n=570 comparisons/OraCheck). RESULTS: The results showed that there was no significant difference between the time of day and the position of the patient. The overall mean±SD value for locating the habitual intercuspation was 42±34μm, however ranging from 22±9μm to 77±58μm for single individuals. On the other hand, the differences in positioning plaster replicas reached a mean of 135±77μm. CONCLUSIONS: The reproducibility of the habitual intercuspation can be obtained under in vivo conditions by a newly developed and highly accurate measuring procedure. Individuals with full dentition show values in average of 42μm. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: Determining the occlusal jaw relation is an important precondition in restorative dentistry and many methods are proposed for a proper occlusal registration. Although much is known about in vitro accuracy of these techniques, little is known how reproducible the habitual occlusal position itself is found between individuals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
