If both condyles are in the ideal position, they will have enough space in the fossae and will therefore have a full range of movement. Teeth, muscles and jaw joints are in optimum alignment with each other. This minimises friction and blockages in the joint. Your jaw joint feels comfortable and you do, too.
You have a perfect impression, a perfect bite analysis and yet the try-in isn’t working as you would wish. This isn’t an isolated case, and it’s a lose-lose situation for everyone involved. We provide workable solutions that enable reproducible and reliable centric bite registration. You’ll be amazed how quickly and yet how accurately these can be transferred to all ranges of indications.
Useful improvements to daily procedures enable greater efficiency and easier work for everyone concerned. Our Centric Guide® system allows you to reliably diagnose possible jaw misalignments, and visualise them, in just a few minutes. The visualisation function can also be used for targeted planning and delivery of treatment in dentulous, partially dentulous and edentulous masticatory systems. Precise and above all reproducible determination of jaw relations is of prime importance, particularly when producing new prosthetic reconstructions.
If the lower jaw is not properly aligned with the upper jaw, this will upset the equilibrium, which can result for example in teeth becoming unattractively worn down or an uncomfortable sensation when you bite. It can also lead to neck and back tension, or to headaches and migraines. This is a condition known as craniomandibular dysfunction, or CMD for short.
Your practice is doing well, and your dental laboratory couldn’t be in better shape? You like to optimise and are successful? Usage always reveals little details that could be improved still further. We’re aware of these kinds of subtleties and are happy to help you inject dynamism into every last corner of your everyday processes. An on-site coaching session at your premises, including the well-known external perspective, can bring about a new approach to your business and lead you to greater success.
It is in everyday routines that you can best identify where the dental world still has scope for optimisation. This is what prompted us, in 2009, as an engineer and a master dental technician, to start developing devices to optimise our own workflow – and they could optimise yours too. In 2013, the state of Saxony awarded us 2nd place in the Saxony Innovation Awards.
“I spent a long time looking for a first-rate electronic recording system. I found it in the Centric Guide®, and have been using it since 2012. The system was easy to integrate into daily practice, is straightforward to use and provides clear measurements that can be reproduced by practitioners at any time. The Centric Guide® can be used for all types of prosthetics (fixed, removable and full dentures) and for CMD splint therapy. Patients report a high degree of comfort when chewing and this repeatedly confirms for me that functional reconstructions have been integrated.”

“Having the correct bite is always important, whether you are providing dentures or diagnosing a possible misaligned jaw. Our practice has been working with the Centric Guide® for about three years now. And to be honest, I wouldn’t want to do without it.”
Dr. med. dent. Tom Barthel
Centric Guide ® Expert
“Centric Guide® registration is a simple and completely reliable method for determining precise jaw relations. Reliable and reproducible determination of jaw relations is extremely important, particularly in the case of a dysfunctional masticatory system or when providing high-quality complex prosthetics.”
