With each case, your goal is to deliver a case that is beautiful, requires minimal adjustments, and has immediate patient acceptance. It is important to include a face-bow registration to ensure you are replicating the movements of the mandible as it relates to the patient.
There are dozens of books, videos, articles, eBooks, blogs and live courses that cover the subject in detail, so I thought I would offer some of the ones I feel do a great job of explaining this most important subject. It won’t matter whether you are a novice or an experienced expert, these resources offer a lot of valuable information.
