Event Title

Comparison of the Agreement between Intraoral and Articulator Contacts in the Retruded Contact Position

Session

Medical, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Description

The clinical requirements of an articulator are the ability to perform reproduction of centric and eccentric occlusion. If dental casts are accurately mounted to an articulator, it is possible to simulate certain occlusal relationships, but it should not be forgotten an articulator can simulate but not duplicate all mandibular movements. Many different types of articulators have been developed to perform lateral and protrusive movements, and some of them have even individually adjustable. Nevertheless, most of them cannot be performed the retrusive movement. Thirty-five dental students were selected as subjects and two different articulator systems, Girrbach Artex CR (Amann Girrbach) and Gerber Condylator Vario, were used for the present study. The locations of Retruded contact position (RCP) contacts in articulators and intra-orally was determined by occlusal wax. From the result of the current study, no statistical difference was found between the two articulator systems regarding mimics of RCP contacts.
