A Dental Articulator is a mechanical device that Is used to simulate the ways the jaws move relative to the temporomandibular joints, or “TMJ’s”. The upper and lower models of your teeth are fixed to the device to accurately reproduce their relationship to each other and to your TMJs.
As a result of my training at the Dawson Academy. it has become an essential tool in treatment planning for patients who require more extensive dental care.
Once the models of your teeth are ﬁxed to an articulator and the precise jaw movements are analyzed, the reason for many dental problems become apparent – especially those related to the bite, grinding and tooth wear.
