Abstract

This article describes a procedure that simultaneously registers maximal intercuspal position and gingival emergence profile. The materials used in this procedure are inexpensive, readily available, and easy to use. The clinician can inspect the framework, cast, and tissue profile before sending them to the laboratory. When this method is properly used, it allows better communication with the dental technician, saves chair time, and reduces the number of laboratory procedures as currently practiced.
