How To Determine Which Articulator To Use

Over the past several years there has been a decline in using a full size articulator for manufacturing dental prostheses. One negative effect is an increase of both the patient and doctor’s time at the time of delivery. Many times this leads to having the prostheses being returned to the lab for a remake. Another effect is the overall perception that the patient has on the quality of the work of the whole dental team.

During this 1-hour webinar we will discuss:

  • the purpose of the articulator
  • the importance of using an articulator
  • how to select an articulator, and
  • when to consider using accessories with your articulator.
