Abstract: Centric Relation (CR) is the reference position of the jaws (which is not dependent on the teeth) when the mandibular condyles are in their uppermost position in the glenoid fossa, involving the least stress being placed on the jaw muscles. It is a natural, physiological position that is repeatable, reproducible and transferable for the purpose of mounting study casts on an articulator.
