One among the most important aesthetic
feature in smile aesthetics is the canting of occlusal
plane. Even though it is important, canting of occlusal
plane is usually not evaluated during the routine clinical
examination, mostly due to its camouflage effect by the
soft tissue structures. But this might create difficulty at
a later stage in treatment when its correction becomes
more difficult. Therefore, identifying occlusal cant at
the clinical examination phase becomes very critical. A
Cant Identifying Device (CID) for occlusal cant
detection is suggested in this article to equip the
clinician to identify occlusal cant chairside without
missing out on this finding. It proves to be a handy tool
for the clinician and very effective when it comes to
detection of occlusal cant.
