Physical and virtual articulator designed with special geometries to simulate patient-specific rotating, sliding and closing movements of the jaw as they occur during mastication
PLANESYSTEM® BY MDT UDO PLASTER DEVELOPED IN COOPERATION WITH ZIRKONZAHN
An innovative approach for capturing and measuring patient-specific occlusal information:
position of the upper jaw,
inclination of the occlusal plane,
occlusal surface design,
lower jaw’s function analysis,
and its relation to the upper jaw.
For a precise planning security, a comprehensive patient consultation and better communication between patient, dentist, orthodontist and dental technician.
inaccurate results through facebows or transferbows can be avoided,
all data can be accurately matched in the articulator by means of reproducible reference planes,
integration of data for functional analysis carried out by dental professionals,
articulator with an innovative design,
completely integrated in the digital workflow.
Reference planes – what’s new?
When detecting the patient’s reproducible Natural Head Position (NHP) by means of the PlaneFinder® measuring/registering device, it is usually possible to localise a horizontal reference plane for the patient‘s skull in the repeatable manner. During the registration, the patient intuitively positions the midline vertically and in the center of the device which allows the user to visualise and record the asymmetries from the patient‘s face on the right and left side of this vertical reference plane.
