Resting occlusion of the cheek teeth

Prepared skulls and CT images of normal rabbit skulls show that, at rest, the mandibular arcade is narrower than the maxillary arcade, so the lingual edges of the maxillary cheek teeth just occlude with the buccal edges of the mandibular cheek teeth. The occlusal surfaces of the cheek teeth are tilted at about 15º to the horizontal plane.
