Condylar displacement between centric relation and maximum intercuspation in symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals.
Several authors have found disturbances in centric relation (CR)-maximum intercuspation (MI)-non centric position of condyles in TMJ and as an important risk factor for TMD [14, 18, 19], and others have opposed this theory [20-22].
With acrylic stabilization splint made at the centric relation position, superior condylar position in relation to habitual occlusion is expected.
The individual has to be with relaxed and asymptomatic muscles to reach the proper position of centric relation (Dupas, Picart, & Graux, 1990).
The Lucia jig not only eliminates any type of occlusal interference that may cause mandibular deviation of the centric relation (CR) for maximum habitual intercuspation (MHI) but also reduces the effect of muscular hyperactivity.
Manipulation of the mandible was performed and an anterior deprogramming device (JIG) (12) was used to record the centric relation position.
When the mandible is brought in centric relation, cast metal mandible prosthesis is used for the patient who lacks the motor skills to bring the mandible into occlusion.
The frameworks were verified and new centric relation records were obtained.
There is not enough research about the data such as vertical dimension, centric relation, and position of the artificial teeth relative to the denture base underlying tissues and borders of dentures, giving information about the general trend of quality of dentures delivered in general practice.5
The centric relation, intercuspal position and vertical dimension were also transferred to the articulator from the patient, with the help of polyvinyl siloxane putty index.
