Using articulators to enhance clinical practice


This paper looks at how articulators can be of value in everyday NHS practice. A variation on the conventional classification of articulators is suggested with advice provided for the practitioner who wants to enhance his or her restorative work without immediately investing in high cost equipment. It is argued that rather than prolong chairside time, for specific types of treatment the use of an appropriate articulator and facebow can not only enhance the quality of the completed restoration, but also save on chairside time
