The check record in NHS practice


Incorrect occlusion is a major cause of complete denture failure. Any technique which has the potential to solve this problem and consequently limit the number of review appointments must be worthy of consideration. The pre-occlusal or precentric check record is an accurate method of verifying the occlusion of complete dentures. Although the check record is taught in many teaching hospitals, it is not widely used in general practice. This is primarily due to the time-consuming nature of the conventional method. A variation on the standard technique is described, which is designed specifically for NHS complete denture practice. The materials used are inexpensive and the procedure takes approximately 10 minutes
