Success of our clinical procedures is not a single-day entity, but instead survival on a long-term basis. The clinical longevity of our work is dependent on so many factors and when we have a closer look, all these ultimately depend on the occlusal stability. The word occlusion itself creates aversion for almost all and very conviently we try to avoid the occlusal principles thinking that we have to bother about the principles only for tempeoro-mandibular joint disorder patients. In an irony, it is true that the principles of occlusion have to be applied in our day-to-day practice to be successful. This article aims to simplify the principles of occlusion so that the readers develop interest in this most rewarding subject. Also, the clinical implication of the occlusal concepts and the treatment modalities are explained to give the readers an insight into how important this subject is for our day-to-day practice. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  1. Important to understand the principles of occlusal harmony, to have a better approach to clinical examination, treatment panning. And problem solving for any restorative cases.
  2. The failure to embrace sound occlusal principles leads to a plethora of fringe-type treatment modalities and unnecessary overtreatment.
  3. If the signs of occlusal disease can be easily observed at the earliest stages, the progression of the damage can be intercepted.
  4. Not respecting the dento-facial system may result in restoration, prosthesis, or periodontal treatment failures, along with relapse of orthodontic and orthognathic surgeries.
