The Horizontal Articulator is a dedicated articulator that enables the information obtained by the Postural Face-Bow to be reported accurately.
The Horizontal Articulator was created in respect to the true horizontal plane, taking into account the natural asymmetries of the condylars, which thanks to the Postural Face-Bow can now be measured.
Of course, the parallel of the articulator plates are respected! The lifting of the condylar rod and counterbalancing its condylar basket always respect the parallel of the plates.
Parallel always under control, due to the bubble level.
The possibility to then turn over the upper part of the articulator enables the technician to work only in a centric position when only searching for the centre, or to immediately be able to observe a model mounted with the previous upper teeth, a diagnostic wax model, a temporary model to reproduce…… etc.
Being able to move the incisal rod to the left or right when working on an incisor group is very convenient.
Also, the articulator spaces, in respect to the true horizontal plane, require the lowering of the condylar joint.
