Aim: The review would aim to provide an appraisal of the current understanding of occlusal concepts and their classification in relation to full mouth rehabilitation.
Settings and Design: Systematic review following PRISMA guidelines.
Materials and Methods: Two researchers looked through the first search results to weed out duplicates and studies that weren't pertinent to the research issue. When choosing the publications, the titles and abstracts were examined to find the pertinent studies. The full versions of these studies were then retrieved, and the third investigator evaluated them for inclusion and exclusion criteria. Additionally noted were the explanations for studies' exclusion. Finally, the studies that were chosen were those that provided answers to the review's queries.
Age, gender, cause of occlusal wear, T&M classification of the clinical condition, applied occlusal scheme, practical applicability of the philosophy, assessment of vertical dimension of occlusion, treatment outcome, and patient comfort are the variables taken into account for the study.
Statistical Analysis Used: Qualitative analyisis.
Results: A total of 1143 studies were found which were screened and assessed for eligibility. Out of these 36 articles were full text articles. Of these 17 studies did not meet the eligibility criteria since they failed to mention the occlusal concept incorporated in full mouth rehabilitation procedure.
Out of 19 included studies, 10 were Studies with Full mouth occlusal rehabilitation using Hobo’s twin stage technique, 8 were studies Included Studies with Full mouth occlusal rehabilitation using Pankeymann-Schuyler philosophy and only 1 study was Full mouth occlusal rehabilitation using other techniques. All the included studies were case reports; except one study, which was Case series.
Conclusion: Efforts must be made to create a harmonious occlusal interface by accurately diagnosing the cause of disorders and making intra-oral alterations. The Turner & Misserlian categorization shows most cases to be category 1, treated with the canine-guided occlusal concept using the HOBO twin-stage philosophy. This method simplifies the procedure without sacrificing accuracy.
