In this short video, Dr. Curtis Westersund suggests making a small adjustment in how you determine occlusal contact that will make a big difference in its accuracy.

The adjustment has nothing to do with tools or technology: it’s as simple as asking your patient to sit up straight! Posture matters when taking a bite.

To obtain the most accurate measurement, Dr. Westersund recommends patients:

  1. Sit upright
  2. Uncross their legs
  3. Look straight ahead
