Our study was designed to (1) test clinically the reproducibility of the NPT by comparing two consecutive occlusal records and records made at 1-month intervals (2) test the reproducibility of a color-marking technique under the same conditions, and (3) compare the location of occlusal contacts as registered by these two techniques. Results showed that neither technique is highly reproducible. However, the NPT is more reproducible than the CMT. The advantages and disadvantages of the NPT and the CMT were described. It was suggested that more research should be conducted to improve the accuracy of occlusal record techniques.
