An intra-oral centre-point trace served as the reference point for both sets of measurements. Results showed the two techniques to give mean retruded positions 0.25 mm apart in the occlusal-sagittal plane, but the distributions of the two sets of results differed; those recorded on finished dentures… CONTINUE READING
