Answer to Question #85


The correct answer isTRUE

It is always a good idea to establish the VDO before making a centric relation record. In theory, the VDO could be adjusted on the articulator after the casts are mounted if a face-bow transfer has been done. However, since the type of face-bow transer we do is "arbitrary" and since some inaccuracy is to be expected, it is best to make the centric relation record at the correct VDO whenever possible.
