The Centric Relation Conundrum – The Occlusion Camps
Debate (and some confusion) around the topic of occlusion, and its contribution to the success or failure of dental treatment, has been ongoing for some time. Differing philosophies, variation in theories, and the absence of a commonly understood definition have split dentists into various occlusion camps. To help move the debate and our understanding forward, Dr. Mike Racich, frequent Oasis contributor, is here to give a presentation on all things centric relation within a modern dental treatment context, and to tell us which occlusion camp he is in.
