It is apparent from the dental literature, that there are many opinions and much confusion concerning Centric Relation records. The problem has confused a great number of readers, which is not surprising, as many of the writers are also confused. In normal cases, the occlusion, the temporomandibular joints, the bone, the soft tissue and the musculature all produce the same relation to each other and any one of the many registration techniques may be used. A certain technique might be required for an unusual situation or a problem patient. In the final analysis, the skill of the dentist and the cooperation of the patient are probably the most important factors in securing an accurate Centric Relation record.
