Value of axiography in the reconstruction of occlusal function
Hellmann, Daniel / Schindler, Hans J.
The collection of patient-specific data needed for the programming of dental articulators is a classic application of axiography. This information is essential for the simulation of mandibular movements during tooth-guided border movements in the dental laboratory. The use of a valid and reliable electronic axiography system allows the dental laboratory technician to develop an interference-free occlusal design that has high-quality functional occlusal contacts with antagonist teeth. In addition, the articulator geometry can be correlated to the patient's skull in order to optimize the measurement process. In modern oral rehabilitation it is advisable to use an electronic axiography system for articulator programming of the individual patient.
