The study of occlusion involves not only the static relationship of teeth but also their functional interrelationship and all components of the masticatory system. Anterior guidance is essential to a harmonious functional relationship in natural dentition and is critical to functional occlusion. Anterior guidance can be categorized as canine guided and group function. Both techniques are divergent in philosophy and technique. The purpose of this article is to review group function occlusion. The group function occlusion on working side distributes the occlusal load and prevents teeth on non working side from being subjected to the destructive, obliquely directed forces.
