The further development of the bite registration

Registering the bite sounds so simple. And yet, taking a bite registration is a highly complex step that involves defining the lower jaw – which can move in three dimensions – in precisely one position in relation to the upper jaw. This is key, because the required dental product is then made in this exact position in the articulator. But what happens if it isn’t possible to precisely determine this one key position? This is where the teamwork between dentists and dental technicians reaches its limits.

So why use analogue methods to generate a bite registration in this day and age when a digital approach can make it much easier and safer?

Here at theratecc GmbH & Co. KG, we dedicated 10 years to conducting intensive research on this topic together with our partners, including Chemnitz University of Technology. It’s fair to describe our results as pioneering. This is precisely why the development of this patented 3D technology received funding from the Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM) set up by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the European Union.

Use the Centric Guide® 3D for your working routines and plug one of the last analogue gaps in the digital production process.

Digital bite registration for all ranges of indications

The patented Centric Guide® 3D system allows for intuitive, pioneering use as either an analogue or digital tool. Lower jaw movements and the ideal centric area are clearly displayed in the Centric 3D software and can be transferred immediately to an analogue or digital bite registration in the mouth.

The sophisticated concept covers all indications in dentulous, semi-edentulous or edentulous masticatory systems, making this a very cost-effective solution.

Capturing lower jaw movements in 3D

Centric Guide® 3D is the first system that captures lower jaw movements in 3D directly where they occur – in the patient’s mouth.

A total of four sensors are integrated in the cross-slide table. A pneumatic stopper system also makes it possible to block the cross-slide table in the centric relation for the bite registration. These are just a few of the features that make the Centric Guide® 3D probably the most innovative digital support pin registration method in the world.


Intuitive software for safe & easy use

We have incorporated all of our experience into the new Centric 3D software. The result is software that is easy to understand for you, has a clear structure and is intuitive to use - where you decide how many tips you want for the application:
