In medicine, a chronologic written account that includes a patient's initial complaint(s) and medical history, the physician's physical findings, the results of diagnostic tests and procedures, and any therapeutic medications and/or procedures. 2. In dentistry, a registration of desired jaw relations in a plastic material or on a device to permit these relationships to be transferred to an articulator. [M.E. recorden, fr. O.Fr. recorder, fr. L. re-cordor, to remember, fr. re-, back, again, + cor, heart]
anesthesia r. a written account of drugs administered, procedures undertaken, and physiologic responses during the course of surgical or obstetrical anesthesia.
face-bow r. a registration utilizing a face-bow of the position of the hinge axis and/or the condyles; the face-bow r. is used to orient the maxillary cast to the opening and closing axis of the articulator.

hospital r. the medical r. generated during a period of hospitalization, usually including written accounts of consultants' opinions, physician observations, as well as nurses' observations and treatments.
interocclusal r. a r. of the positional relationship of the teeth or jaws to each other, recorded by placing a plastic material which hardens (such as plaster of Paris, wax, etc.) between the occlusal surfaces of the rims or teeth; the hardened material serves as the r.; it may be registered in centric or eccentric positions, as centric interocclusal r. , a r. of centric jaw relation; eccentric interocclusal r. , a r. of jaw position in other than centric relation; lateral interocclusal r. , a r. of a lateral eccentric jaw position; and protrusive interocclusal r. , a r. of a protruded eccentric jaw position.checkbite;
maxillomandibular r. 1. a r. of the relation of the mandible to the maxillae; 2. the act of recording the relation of the mandible to the maxillae.biscuit bite, maxillomandibular registration;
medical r. See record (1).
occluding centric relation r. a registration of centric relation made at the established occlusal vertical dimension.
preextraction r. preoperative r
preoperative r. in dentistry, any r. made for the purpose of study or treatment planning. See also diagnostic cast.preextraction r;
problem-oriented r. (POR) a system of record keeping in which a list of the patient's problems is made and all history, physical findings, laboratory data, etc. pertinent to each problem are placed under that heading; especially useful for out-patient records of patients with multiple problems who are followed for long periods.
profile r. a registration or r. of the profile of a patient.
protrusive r. a registration of a forward position of the mandible with reference to the maxillae.
terminal jaw relation r. a r. of the relationship of the mandible to the maxillae made at the vertical relation of occlusion and at the centric position.
three-dimensional r. a maxillomandibular r. made at the occluding relation.
