Simplified Procedures For Accurate Records For Complete Dentures

August 16, 2024

Southwest Dental Conference

Dallas, TX

This course presents simplified methods for determining and accurately recording the vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation. Accurate records are very important for achieving success and predictability of complete dentures. Simplified clinical steps will be explained in detail.

Life is too short to use wax rims to record the vertical dimension of occlusion and
centric relation for complete dentures. Wax rims are bulky, cumbersome, difficult to adjust, and often lead to inaccurate records. I will show you a much better way with the gothic arch tracer.

What attendees will learn to:
- determine an acceptable vertical dimension of occlusion for an edentulous patient and why this is very important.
- define and explain how to locate centric relation for an edentulous person.
- accurately record the vertical dimension of occlusion and centric relation for an edentulous patient using the gothic arch tracer.
