I’ve spent a good deal of time this summer preparing for a hands on occlusion workshop I will be teaching with Mary Osborne and Dr. Mark Kleive in January of next year. The course includes access to a protected webpage that will host hours of video content available 3 months before we meet in Glendale at my office. A key diagnostic record for analyzing a patient’s occlusion is a set of mounted models in centric relation. There are multiple ways to help a patient find centric relation, one of which is bimanual guidance (bilateral manipulation). There are also a number of materials that we can use to capture a centric relation bite record. The wax record demonstrated can be more challenging to acquire, but is more accurate and easier when mounting the models. The following is a short excerpt from a video on wax platform centric relation records.
