A simplified technique for determining the occlusal plane in full denture construction

Journal of Oral Rehabilitation
M H Spratley


Because of difficulties encountered by students in determining the occlusal plane at the registration stage of full denture treatment, a simple technique which can be easily taught has been devised. Review of literature revealed a wide variety of landmarks and techniques advocated by various authorities and these are discussed. A technique using direct vision is described and a review of a series of patients showed it to be valid for the majority of cases.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
