Technician’s Tip

Did you know that all your fixed cases are mounted and designed on virtual articulators? That’s right. Thanks to our CAD design programs, all cases are virtually mounted on full-size adjustable articulators utilizing Bonwill’s equilateral triangle and average value settings.

 So even though your case may be returned to you on a small plastic articulator, you can be assured that the most up-to-date technology has been used at D&S to simulate mandibular jaw movements, move digitized occlusal surfaces against each other according to those movements, and then correct digitized occlusal surfaces to enable smooth and collision-free movements.
