6 occlusion of the tooth


Class II, division II malocclusion is often associated with a deep overbite.

An open bite can exist even if the anterior incisors are touching edge to edge.

An overjet is often the result of severely protruded maxillary incisors.

Retruded teeth are inclined lingually.

False. Canines can be used.

Occlusion cannot be determined if permanent first molars are missing.

False. The mandible's growth exceeds the maxillae.

In patients with acromegaly, the maxilla grows faster and more than the mandible.


The arrangement of the teeth in a row.

Leeway space

The extra space that the deciduous canines and molars occupy and that saves room for the eruption of the permanent teeth.

Primate space

The diastemas next to the deciduous canines.


The spaces between the teeth.


The relationship of the maxillary teeth to the mandibular teeth when they are closed together.

Centric occlusion

Affords the greater interdigitation of the teeth when the jaws are closed

All of the above: a deep overbite, crowded maxillary incisors, a normal overjet, and distocclusion.

A Class II, division II occlusion often has

prognathic mandibular jaw.

A Class III occlusion is associated with

vertical overlap.

An overbite can be described as a(n):

Class I

What occlusion occurs when the mesiobuccal cusp of the permanent maxillary first molar is directly over the buccal groove of the permanent mandibular first molar?

Class III

Which occlusion is the least common?

What occlusion occurs when the distal surface of the permanent mandibular canine is mesial to the mesial surface of a permanent maxillary canine by at least a width of one tooth?


What occurs when permanent mandibular molars are buccal to permanent maxillary molars?


Which of these teeth occlude in the ideal centric occlusion?


Which teeth touch in the ideal protrusive movement?

group function.

When the premolars occlude in lateral excursion, it is called a(n):
