AUTHOR(S): Dr. Anoopa Nataraj, Dr. Asha M Rathod, Dr. Gaurang Mistry, Dr. Ashwini Kini and Dr. Sheetal B Parab
ABSTRACT:The maxillo-mandibular relationship record is a critical step to establish occlusion in implant supported full mouth rehabilitation involving fixed or removable prosthesis. The definitive implant casts have been articulated by several techniques at optimum occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) in the correct centric relation (CR) in edentulous patients receiving implants. Newer methods have been discussed for transferring vertical jaw relation that have claimed to reduce chair side time, establish accurate records and increase comfort for both, the patient and the clinician. The various techniques are, stabilized record bases with occlusal rims screwed in or supported by healing abutments, plastic sprues reinforced by acrylic record base, duplicate denture, relining existing denture, use of buccal index of existing denture and use of silicone cones. Thus, a review of the various techniques available to transfer these records onto the articulator is enlisted, from which the clinician is free to choose the technique most feasible.
