The attachment of a paraocclusal tray adapter to the lower arch for axiography
An improved procedure
Ahlers, M. Oliver
In the case of mechanical or electronic axiography, mandibular excursions are recorded using a tracing bow, which is attached to the lower teeth. This attachment is carried out either paraocclusally or periocclusally. Traditionally, the paraocclusal attachment required dental technical preparation using laboratory acrylic. After that, the paraocclusal tray adapter could be fixed using suitable cements. The procedure described in this report requires no dental technical preparation and guarantees more flexible implementation of paraocclusal axiography.
