Occlusal plane orientation is one of the most important and vital clinical step in complete denture patents. The fundamental basis of locating occlusal plane differs among various countries, however, the most reliable one is the ala-tragus line which is a horizontal line drawn through the lower part of the nose and the orifice of the ear. Since, there is a lot of controversy regarding which part of the tragus should be used to orient the occlusal plane, cephalometry can be used as an adjunct to position the occlusal plane as related to other craniofacial landmarks.
