The clinical remount procedure, which involves remounting the dentures on an articulator with interocclusal records, can effectively reduce occlusal discrepancies. This procedure can be applied not only to new dentures but also to those already in service; however, research in this field is still scarce. This narrative review aims to establish a hypothetical mechanism and possible indications and contraindications for this technique as a basis for further research. Current studies have revealed a high prevalence of malocclusion in delivered dentures. Performing a clinical remount on these existing dentures would enhance the oral function of the denture wearer and would enable effective and accurate correction of the accumulated errors in the jaw relationship in a stable working environment. This technique should be performed if a patient has poor masticatory function or occlusion-related complaints. However, performing a clinical remount on dentures with an excessive anterior–posterior discrepancy between the centric relation and the maximal intercuspal position or on dentures with extremely low occlusal vertical dimension, is considered less effective. The clinical remount procedure remains an essential skill both for fabricating quality dentures and maintaining those already in service. View Full-Text
