Digital fixed complete-arch rehabilitation: From virtual articulator mounting to clinical delivery

Published:December 11, 2020DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.prosdent.2020.08.049

      Abstract

      The virtual articulator is a tool that reproduces the relationship between the jaws in a virtual environment. The purpose of this clinical report was to describe a completely digital protocol starting from the virtual articulator mounting to developing static and dynamic occlusion in a complex prosthetic rehabilitation.
