    Don't worry about it until you get to your occlusion course. And then when thats done, don't worry about it again.

    thanks for the quick response.

    however, Im in occlusion now, I have a final in 2 weeks and I am worried about passing the course.

    So, do you have any study aids that could help I would certainly appreciate it!

    yeah, but what do you want to know about lateral or condylar guidance? how to set it on the articulator? how to capture the intraoral records?...i seriously doubt there is much test review material out there for articulator use.

    as a side note, my hanau came with a nice thick instruction book about its many features. maybe that would help...

    I can assure you that reading the manual will provide you with the answers to most if not all of your questions, as two previous posters have said. We had a copy of it in our complete dentures coursepack and it is quite thorough.

    No problem. I am used to people being not helpful in the least here.

    Its so full of immature people I am amazed that its lasted this long.

    the whole site is unhelpful. All people do is post WHAT ARE MY CHANCES THREADS.

    who really gets help here?

    biged, if you think this site is not helpful why do you waste your time posting?

    Try dentaltown and see if they don't rip you as much. I think you will get similar responses.

    What don't you undestand about horizontal and lateral condylar movements? What is it with your tone? Maybe if you weren't such an As_, you might get less sarcasm with the responses. I would suggest you get your textbook out, read about the joint, translation, rotation, bennett movement, etc. before you ask stupid, non specific questions(hence the responses). I dont see anything wrong with the advice to read your artic. manual.

    BigEd, I think what some of the other guests are trying to get at is an articulator is merely a tool that you use to help understand your patient's occlusion, set dentures, etc. While it might look like an odd device, there shouldn't be much of a mystery behind its use and operation. I'll try to help you out with a brief description of its function (something I think you're looking for) taken off the top of my head. In the pre-clinical settings the condylar and Bennett angles (these approximate the range of free motion of the mandible as it moves dynamically about the condylar, coronal, and sagittal planes) are usually set to 30 and 15 degrees, respecitvely, (don't hold me to those values) and, once your casts are mounted, you can examine your arches to see how the arches relate to one another in centric, working and non-working movements, sources of interference, the presence of group function or canine guidance, and on and on. If you were working on a denture case or one that was making use of a lot of prosth you would use a facebow to accurately record your patient's VDO and centric relation and then transfer the facebow to the articulator to help mount your casts, and then use the mounted casts to go through all that I mentioned. It's basically a means to approximate your patient's jaw movements.

    While my quick search on Google didn't reveal any stellar results, I urge you to also look there if you aren't finding any answers to specific questions you may have.

    *To the other guests: Please be a bit more considerate and sensitive to the genuine questions and requests of others. I'm sure you'd appreciate the same from others next time you are seeking advice.

    frankly, i thought my initial suggestion to read over the manual was helpful, especially since i once had similar questions to biged. in reading my own manual, i found many of my own questions answered and i have benefited greatly in my clinic time from knowing how to use my articulators and what their limitations are.

    i imagine that the light flaming biged has been given is due mostly to his apparent inability to take the directions given to find some of his own answers. i dont mind to explain how to use an articulator or the physical concepts of border movements, condylar movements, etc., but those are very visual concepts to try to make clear in words only. thus my side note to check the manual (which does have pictures and words) and try to figure it out from there.

    i knew that you could lead a horse to water, but i didnt realize the horse expected to have the water filtered and presented in gilded chalice before it would drink.
