Simulating mandibular movements and articulator design

Establishing new dentition and occlusal schemes requires a thorough understanding of the principles of occlusion, mandibular movements, phonetics, and esthetics. This presentation is designed to help understand the dynamics of mandibular movements, form and function of the dentition, occlusal schemes, patient simulation, and the interaction of those factors on occlusal rehabilitation. Special emphasis is laid upon articulator design and the current innovations utilizing digital technology in the development of this instrument from an articulator to a patient simulator.
