Since time immemorial, various articulators have been invented to simulate human jaw movements. The purpose is to perfectly transfer the various movements in the patient's mouth, and reduce clinical adjustment when delivering prosthesis.
However, due to the complexity of the TMJ, these methods are not too complicated to apply to each patient, or the simplification caused by oversimplification can only be an estimate.
Thanks to the advancement of technology, the digital workflow can be combined with the mandibular tracing device to achieve the real mobile import, in addition to reducing many complicated processes.
Has this technology matured now? Has it really achieved perfect tracking? Let us have a look!
- Understand the concept of occlusion design
- Understand the types and differences of traditional articulators
- Recognize the digital articulator in the CEREC software
- Know the SICAT Function mandibular tracing device
- In an actual case, discuss the difference between using the average value, SICAT Function to get the value into the digital articulator, and directly using the SICAT Function to integrate the CEREC software design.
