A Hanau articulator is used by dentists, orthodontists, teachers and dental technicians to create accurate casts of a patient's teeth and key jaw measurements. It is one of the most important dental equipment. These casts are then used to design and create custom-made crowns, bridges and splint fabrications. They're also used for presentations and as an aid for orthognathic surgery, a type of surgery to correct teeth and jaw disorders. You can easily adjust the Hanau articulator to mimic the anatomical function and movement of a patient's teeth and jaw without the need of plaster casts or expensive equipment.
In the dental articulators industry it boils down to two things: Stability vs. Simplicity. Unsurprisingly, when given the choice, most dental technicians and dentists preferred stability over simplicity. Although this choice may seem trivial to most people, it is a delicate matter for dental technicians and their clients, the dentist.
By going with disposable dental articulators that offer stability with simplicity, you not only save hours of time by cutting out several steps of traditional model making, you are also making it easy to send the case back to the dentists already mounted and articulated without worrying about retrieving the expensive metal articulators. If there is a fitment issue, the doctor can refer back to the model to determine where the problem stems from.
Many disposable dental articulators on the market are flimsy and unreliable compared to traditional non-disposable articulators. If you want to avoid having to remake a model when using disposables, you need a disposable articulator that offers the most stability like the magnetic articulator. What makes this classic product stand out is its comparable stability to a traditional stone base system without resorting to using that said system. When working with individual dies, it is necessary to provide a stable base. The magnetic articulator dental articulator products offer the most stable yet disposable bases on the market. Despite the fact it has stability, it does not mean it is complex. Choosing your dental articulators by the specific stone types that produce the best results is a great way to get started.
It does not matter if you select a stable or simple articulator, in the end it is all about providing the best products and services possible to your customers. Dentists want products that work for them and make their lives easier. Dental technicians should embrace this opportunity and continually drive to provide products that make lives easier for both the technicians and the dentists. Selecting the right dental articulators can mean a lot for a dental office and their patients. It can translate to more reliable crown fittings and fewer remakes, increasing office efficiency and decreasing potential patient wait time.
