English term or phrase: biting (occlusal) surface of teeth
The text is about impacted teeth (or tooth) and it says that" impacted tooth can't reach the level of the biting surface of other teeth", or in other words, that tooth can't grow or it is retained in the bone. Actually, I'm trying to translate this from Serbian to Italian, but I only managed to find the expression biting (occlusal) surface in English, and I think that I'm on the right path. Thanks in advance!

It looks like they are equivalent. However, since the text says "biting" (and not occlusal) I would choose "masticatoria"
