Event Title

Use of Virtual Articulator in Prosthodontics

Session

Dental Science

Description

While the mechanical articulators have contributed to enhanced design, manufacture, and fixing of artificial replacements for different mouth components, virtual articulators are being considered as a viable replacement which not only carry out these obligations in a more advanced manner, but they also offer considerable outcomes. To begin with, reproduction of exact movement of trails of the mandible employing an automated jaw process structure referred to as jaw motion analyzer (JMA) makes it unique. Furthermore, dental arches are not only easily viewed on a screen, but also their movements can be studied for efficient reproduction. Some challenges that it solves include the problem of poorly manufactured, designed, and fitted artificial mouth-parts replacements (Pandita, Dod, & Bhat, 2016). Primary and secondary data are to be collected. The study design will entail identifying secondary sources that qualify in the category of quantitative studies and on the adoption of virtual articulators in prosthodontics. In addition to this approach, the use of interviews will also be carried out as another research technique. The method will entail questioning dentists and orthodontists that use virtual articulators to highlight and investigate the benefits of this technology.
