The purpose of using a semi-adjustable articulator is to simulate the patient's mandibular movement and help in restoring functional occlusion. Condylar guidance on the articulators is an approximate duplication of the condylar path in patients. Many concepts regarding the condylar guidance have been discussed and evaluated, but no single or definite method of recording this value has been put forward. An extensive electronic search was conducted from 1991 until December 2016 to narrow down studies based on interocclusal records for recording the condylar guidance.. Our results demonstrate heterogeneity in the condylar guidance values in the selected studies. Materials used for interocclusal records, the type of articulators and the facebow technique influence the values of condylar guidance.
