In order to obtain the basic data for diagnosis of occlusion the author investigated the occlusal sounds produced by mandibular closing movement from rest position to centric occlusion by using the Korotkoff sounds microphone electrodes and physiograph for Korean 20S without TMJ problems. And the author analyzed the correlation of the occlusal sounds with height, body weight, mandibular closing movement distance, maxillary sinus size and masseter muscle activities relating to the production of occlusal sounds. The obtained results were as follows : 1. The occlusal sounds prouduced by mandibular closing movements from rest position to centric occlusion were ranged from 3.08mV to 52.00mV, their maen value 19.07mV in right side, and ranged from 2.41mV to 18.33mV, their mean value 9.19mV in left side in group of Angel's class I occlusion subjects having right habitual side of mastication. 2. In general the occlusal sounds in the habitual side of mastication were greater than those in the opposite side. 3. The correlations of the occlusal sounds with height and maxillary sinus size were not significant. 4. The correaltions of the occlusal sounds with body weight, mandibular closing movement distance and masster muscle activities were significant.
