This article describes a procedure in which articulating paper is modified for the intraoral assessment of static occlusal contacts. The rectangular-shaped articulating paper is modified by creating parallel cuts at 2- to 3-mm intervals perpendicular to its long side without completely separating the paper. This modification may improve the accuracy in determining occlusal contacts and therefore facilitate an occlusal adjustment procedure.
