We developed methods of description of biometric characteristics of the lateral teeth occlusal morphology as a localization of typical occlusal contacts which determines the functional tooth pin position and the areas of contact-associated zones. The data obtained as well as mathematical methods permit an analysis and design of a false occlusal surface.
