The articulator is a very important instrument for the economy of the dental technology laboratory and it’s fundamental to start a constructive dialogue between the dental practice and the dental technology laboratory.
For the realisation of the prosthesis with Professor R. Slavicek’s technique we use the Reference SL Girrbach articulator and the SAM.
Reference SL: it’s an articulator that combines the safety of the guidance on the horizontal plane typical of the Non-Arcon articulator with the didactic and geometrical-dynamic advantages of the Arcon structure; in fact we can easily see what happens in the condylar boxes and check directly the contact with the guidance elements. It’s a safe and practical articulator that allows working with patient’s average values or adapting it to patient’s individual values thanks to the programming set of the single condylar housings.
SAM: articulator well known and widely used in many laboratories. This articulator can also be programmed at individual values or used at average values.
