Occlusion is a very fine and a complex topic to be taken into consideration while fabricating a complete denture. Occlusion has a considerable influence on the outcome of every prosthodontic treatment modality. There are various occlusal schemes in the literature for complete denture fabrication. But not one of them is accepted universally or synonymously. In patients with resorbed ridges, special care is to be taken for fabrication of the complete denture occlusion, as there is compromised retention, stability an support. When complete dentures are fabricated for an edentulous patient, occlusion has a considerable influence on the outcome of treatment. Due to the relative simplicity involved in development of a lingualized occlusal scheme by dental laboratory technicians, this approach has gained favor among practitioners who are able to evaluate and/or correct tooth arrangements for complete dentures. This article will highlight the influences of a lingualized tooth arrangement in complete denture occlusion as it relates to improving edentulous patients' function and quality of life.
