Three-dimensional imaging has invaded our workspaces and transformed dental prosthesis design procedures. The fourth dimension adds the time factor to the display of dental anomalies, allowing models to be animated according to the precise movement of a patient’s dental arch.
Dynamic recording of jaw motion has many applications. This is no longer an articulator stimulation, but a genuine digital avatar of the patient. In this document, we present the various clinical and laboratory applications of this new technology.
