The first of this three-part series will focus on the occlusal assessment and the proposed features of the 'ideal occlusal scheme'. The examination of the static and dynamic relationship of the dentition is outlined, including the extra- and intra-oral examination. The terminology associated with the intra-occlusal positions and relationships are described and a template for a comprehensive occlusal examination is presented. Part 1 also aims to explore some of the essential concepts in clinical occlusion.
