Restoration of occlusion in patients with mutilated dentition is a challenging situation as every case is unique in itself. There is a great apprehension involved in reconstructing worn-out dentition due to widely divergent opinions regarding the choice of an appropriate occlusal scheme. A critical assessment and subsequent scientific validation of available literature on occlusal philosophies in full-mouth rehabilitation require an understanding of their evolution in the formative years and the subsequent development of effective models for clinical practice. This study overviews the various occlusal concepts/philosophies in fullmouth rehabilitation, which will help the clinician to select an appropriate occlusal scheme for an individual case.

Keywords: Centric occlusion, Centric relation, Functionally generated path, Occlusal vertical dimension, Pankey-Mann- Schuyler concept, Temporomandibular joint disorder.
