    ABSTRACT: The study reported compared the positions of the horizontal axis of rotation of the condyles when R.A.P. registrations were taken on seven subjects using; (1) An anterior jig with chinpoint guidance. (2) An anterior jig with chinpoint guidance and applied muscle force by the subject. (3) An anterior jig with bilateral manipulation (i.e. bilateral support of the body of the mandible by the operator). The results showed that the most superior positions were obtained with the technique using the anterior jig with chinpoint guidance and applied muscle force, which was also the most inconsistent technique. The technique using the anterior jig with chinpoint guidance was most consistent, and the mean difference between retruded axis position and intercuspal position using this technique was 0.31 mm on the right side and 0.34 mm on the left side.

    ABSTRACT: The mandibular position indicator (MPI) was used to compare condylar position between centric relation (CR) and centric occlusion (CO) for 107 patients before orthodontic treatment. The MPI data were examined to determine frequency, direction, and magnitude of CO-CR difference; and data were analyzed for possible correlation to the patient's Angle classification, ANB angular measurement, age, or gender. Only one patient (0.9%) had no measurable CO-CR difference in all three spatial planes. Six subjects (5.6%) showed a shift in condylar position in the transverse plane without a measurable difference in the sagittal plane. Twenty patients (18.7%) experienced a superoinferior (SI) or anteroposterior (AP) condylar displacement of at least 2.0 mm on one or both sides; 17 (15.9%) displayed a transverse shift at the level of the condyles of 0.5 mm or greater. No statistical difference was found between the 31 patients with Class I malocclusions and 72 patients with Class II malocclusions when comparing the amount or direction of CO-CR change. The amount of CO-CR difference was nearly identical for right and left sides with the amount of SI displacement (x = 0.84 mm) consistently greater than AP displacement (x = 0.61 mm). Only weak correlations were found between movements of right and left condyles. The average transverse CO-CR difference was 0.27 mm. Patient age, ANB angle, gender, or Angle classification cannot be used to predict frequency, magnitude, or direction of CO-CR changes at the level of the condyles.
