Centric relation is the most difficult, yet, most important step in fabrication of a successful prosthesis. It is a complex relationship which exists in 3 dimensions and variations may occur in any direction – vertical, anteroposterior or mediolateral. Thus, it is essential to record this relationship with the least possible error to obtain a successful prosthesis. However when relating the maxillary and mandibular dental casts, the ultimate accuracy depends on the technique used to record the maxillomandibular relationship and accuracy and dimensional stability of the material
Key words: Centric relation, direct recording, functional recording, gothic arch tracing.
