Abstract

Dental practitioners often require patients to perform specific mandibular movements (protrusive, retrusive, and lateral) in order to make centric relation and eccentric records. Occasionally, patients are unable to comprehend and perform the desired movements, even after repeated instructions. This article describes a quick, simple, and easy-to-follow technique to help guide patients with their mandibular movements.
