The stability of teeth is an important measure of the periodontal health. This study was designed to determine if there was a relation between the patterns of disclusion and a tooth mobility. An evaluation was made on 117 persons with Angle's class I occlusion who were free from histories of orthodontics, removable or fixed prosthesis, and anterior crowding or open contacts. The results were as follows: 1. In this study, 17.52% of the subjects were exhibited canine protected occlusion. 2. In protrusive movements, 75.21% of the subjects were exhibited incisor guided occlusion and the subjects of canine guided occlusion was the smallest. 3. The canine tooth of mouths having canine-protected occlusions had slightly lower mean tooth mobility scores than the canine of mouths having group function occlsion, but there was no significances. 4. The tooth mobility score of central incisor had higher than that of lateral incisor.
