Condylar Inclination Errors

By Unknown on Friday, June 6, 2008 with 0 comments

-if the condylar inclination angle is greater on the articulator than on the patient,

the resulting fabricated occlusion will have a potential excursive or protrusive (positive) error.

-if the condylar inclination angle is underestimated or measured on the articulator than the patient, the resulting occlusion will have a negative error.

-Side shift: the most costly error. The more the side shift (immediate mandibular laterotranslation-non working and laterotrusion-working), the more mesial are the working and balancing cusp paths on the mandibular teeth. This can cause an excursive prematurity (positive error). This movement must be evaluated in conjunction with the amount of anterior guidance.
