In addition, the vertical overlap was also measured by vertical superposition of the upper incisors on the lower, with the volunteer in maximal intercuspation, using a caliper.
At the end of the treatment, deepbite, incisor inclinations and interincisal angle were corrected, and Class II molar relationship with good intercuspation was achieved.
The study was conducted by analyzing images obtained from cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) taken in the maximum intercuspation position using the PlanMeca[R] device (Korea); the images were analyzed in the EZ3D plus computer program (2009) by a single observer who took the measurements at two-week intervals; the correlation coefficient between the first and second measurement was 0.

Using T-scan and EMG, the tooth contact sequence, changing occlusal forces, and fluctuating muscle activity levels of the temporalis and masseter muscle were recorded from an intercuspation followed by excursive movements till the muscle shutdown occurred.

Debonding was done after achieving good intercuspation and normal overjet and overbite.
The orthodontists performed the extraoral palpation and the intraoral direct visual inspection that enabled them to assess findings such as the occlusal relationships in the maximum habitual intercuspation (MHI).
Malocclusions happen when maximum teeth intercuspation is altered so that teeth do not comply with the laws of normal and correct relationships between upper and lower teeth in transversal, antero-posterior, or vertical direction.
Andrews8 described the six characteristics of normal occlusion and found that the curve of Spee in subjects with good occlusion ranged from flat to mild, noting that the best intercuspation occurred when occlusal plane was relatively flat.
The second is by scanning both arches separately and then acquiring a third (Buccal) scan with both arches together in maximum intercuspation.
