An articulator is a mechanical instrument combined with physical models of your current and new restored smile. The articulator allows the team at Wolf Family Dentistry to simulate mandibular movement and assists in the fabrication of dentures, fixed prosthodontic restorations (crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays), and orthodontic appliances.
This dental innovation has helped us better plan how your smile should be restored. The articulator illustrates how the function and bite will be improved through the restorative treatments that are recommended. Patients can develop painful joint concerns in addition to chipping, and cracking of the teeth when they do not fit together properly. Without creating equilibrium or balance, smile restorations can be short lived. Therefore, we take a comprehensive health view. Be assured that we will develop a bio-engineered plan for your new smile.
