The precise relation of maxillary and mandibular casts is an essential step in developing accurate occlusion in fixed prosthodontics. When an adequate number of opposing teeth and stable intercuspation exist, direct occlusion of the casts is the most accurate method of articulation. In the absence of definitive occlusal contacts for direct relation of the casts, an interocclusal record is required. This becomes even more important when the distal tooth in the arch is also an abutment in the fixed partial denture. This article reviews various materials and techniques for recording interocclusal relationship in fixed prosthodontic procedures.
