A digital bite registration can be taken with Centric Guide® in no time at all. The system is intuitive and easy to handle. Each patient is of course an individual, which is precisely the challenge with traditional analogue bite registration. Centric Guide® enables you to generate reproducible bite registrations in either dentulous or edentulous masticatory systems. Completely straightforward, just what you need for everyday work.
With the Centric Guide® system you can generate reproducible bite registrations in centric relation in all ranges of indications. A range of studies and investigations have shown that 9 out of 10 Centric Guide® registrations are identical. The one registration falling outside the range differs by only 0.1 mm. The centric area is today taken to be about 0.7 mm, based on various studies. It is therefore clear that a 0.1 mm deviation in registration of jaw relations is not significant. It is the reproducibility of the Centric Guide® system, along with how easy it is to handle, that most impresses users. Two registrations and a consistent result: ensuring certainty and confidence in your everyday work.
Wikipedia says, “CMD is not necessarily characterised by pain. It can also cause dizziness, light sensitivity, panic attacks (heart palpitations) and stress on a daily basis. In our fast-moving age, CMD is cause and effect all in one.” Targeted diagnostics and treatment are therefore of fundamental importance. [resource]
Wherever you need to take a centric bite registration, Centric Guide® ensures it is reproducible. The Centric Guide® system is impressively easy to handle, flexible and portable, and can also be used during home visits or in care homes. It can be easily integrated into everyday practice and laboratory work, and its total weight of only 3kg (including the case) only adds to this. It also, incidentally, does away with the need for expensive dongle fees.
The Centric Guide® allows you to visualise possible jaw misalignments and thus provides the basis for targeted treatment for the individual patient. It enables you to determine jaw relations digitally and quickly, in all planes of motion and with absolute reproducibility. Its patented measurement procedure allows you to determine centric relation within just a few minutes and simultaneously transfer it to a centric record. The procedure for Centric Guide® analysis is similar to that for a standard support-pin registration. The patient makes the same movements as for conventional support-pin registration. The Centric Guide® system is unique in that it records vertical movements of the lower jaw for the first time. The bite registration enables the model to be articulated in the articulator.
Centric Guide® is a recognised medical device and a prize-winner at the Saxony Innovation Awards 2013.
Accurate and straightforward
The delicate system components ensure simple oral application. Centric Guide® analysis requires preparatory impressions, models, facebow registration and individual measuring templates. The support pin is placed in the upper jaw measuring template along with the measuring unit, while the lower jaw template holds the cross-slide table. The cross-slide table can be adjusted both sagittally and transversely. The procedure for Centric Guide® analysis is similar to that for a standard support-pin registration. The patient makes the same movements as for conventional support-pin registration. The Centric Guide® system is unique in that, for the first time, it records all vertical movements of the lower jaw. The measurements obtained are plotted on the tablet PC. Intuitive software guarantees reliable and simple handling. The bite registration generated with Centric Guide® enables the model to be articulated in the articulator. The centric jaw relation obtained for the patient can thus be visualised and evaluated in the articulator. The measurements / bite registration obtained are reliable and easy to integrate into dental practices’ and laboratories’ workflows.
Integration into practice thanks to individualisation
Centric® Software 2.0 is at the heart of the Centric Guide® system and has an impressive array of different modules. Its clear menu structure and simple “Next” and “Back” buttons make the software intuitive to use.Centric® Software 2.0 is constructed on a modular basis, i.e. you can put individual modules together to suit your own needs. Measurements are verified twice and stored in a log that can provide you with documentation and proof at any time. The remote maintenance tool allows for flexible and individualised service and support options. System settings can be quickly and simply checked or adjusted over the internet as necessary, using your tablet.

Data backup module
This module allows you to control for yourself the timing and location of your patients’ data backups. Additional backups for all Centric Guide® patient data can be carried out either automatically or manually.
User management module
User management has been designed specifically for laboratories and group practices. The module enables system users (Administrators) to grant appropriate rights to additional users, and to update and adjust such rights as needed. So a dental laboratory, for instance, could set up each of its clients as users and grant them user rights. Special password protection guarantees a completely new standard of data protection. Patient data can only be viewed and edited by the corresponding user. Whatever your future looks like, user management will help you respond flexibly.
Network connection module
This module enables you to incorporate the Centric Guide® system quickly and easily into your practice network. Centric Guide® Network Software 2.0 is installed smoothly on your office computer and ensures ideal data transfer between your practice PCs and the Centric Guide® system. In this way, patient data can be entered on the practice computer and transferred to the Centric Guide® system via the network. You can also call up and view all patients stored in Centric Network Software, and the corresponding measurement logs, from your practice PC. Network connectivity integrates the Centric Guide® system perfectly into your practice.
VDDS connectivity module
VDDS connectivity enables straightforward data exchange between the Centric Guide® system and your patient management software. VDDS interfaces are standardised. The only prerequisite is that the Centric Guide® system is incorporated into your practice network. Centric® Network Software 2.0 ensures perfect data transfer. VDDS connectivity means you can transfer all patient data, e.g. patient name, date of birth, directly from your patient management software to Centric® Network Software 2.0. After each measurement, the measurement log will automatically be stored in the patient file of your patient management software and on the Centric Guide® tablet. VDDS connectivity makes the Centric Guide® system part of your digital practice.

“For years, we have been looking for a reproducible, accurate and practical way of determining the central position in all lower jaw planes. After having been trained in almost all registration procedures currently on the market, we have found that Centric Guide® is the only system that meets our high quality standards.”

Dr. Sabine Mirsberger
Centric Guide Advanced User
“We work with Centric Guide® because it provides an incredibly reliable and straightforward way of determining the patient’s jaw relation in a reproducible manner. And it works for fully dentulous, partially dentulous and edentulous jaws. It also has outstanding features for planning and implementing targeted treatment for cases of CMD, and with a high probability of success!”

Dr. Roth Dental Practice
Centric Guide® Advanced User
“Our dental lab uses Centric Guide® because it offers benefits for patients, for the dental practices we work with, and for us. We have already been able to help patients with a variety of complaints, such as years of headaches, and our experience so far is that every measurement and the treatment that follows has a significant impact on patient well-being. In addition, our customers save time because bites are precise and don’t require any follow-up appointments for fitting. As a laboratory, we can be more efficient too, because the Centric Guide® removes the need for adjustment or grinding of newly produced items.”
