Introduction: To compare and assess which amongst the two centric relation guiding techniques best guides the mandible to centric relation position using clinical, myographical and radiological assessment methods.

Methodology: The study was conducted as a randomized controlled trial on dentate subjects aged between 18 to 25 years of age with Angle's class I occlusion. The study was carried out in 3 phases; Clinical, Electromyography, Radiological. Difference between the centric points, workload on elevators, condylar position was assessed.

Result: Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the difference between the centric points marked using both the techniques. When independent t- test was applied to correlate the gender and mean centric distribution, no statistically significance difference was observed. Paired t test showed that workload on elevators of both sides, difference between the anteroposterior and superoinferior positions of condyle in relation to the fossa was statistically insignificant. Multivariate test showed statistically significant difference between gender and EMG, results whereas it was insignificant in MRI.

Conclusion: The results of the study can safely claim that the wax ball technique is more or less as accurate as the Dawson's bimanual technique.
