For years, manufacturers and suppliers to the dental sector have been producing and manufacturing systems dedicated to dental prosthesis, always with the aim of facilitating and improving our daily work, and we must thank them for this.

 

These professional and efficient design offices have sometimes developed amazing systems on paper, but poorly adapted to our daily practice in the laboratory. Who?, does not have drawers full of purchased and unused or abandoned products. work perfectly have always been developed by Prosthetists or Practitioners who have daily practice.

 

The current dental world is turned towards 3D in digital flow, which has many advantages over analog systems. Some manufacturers such as Amann, Girrbach, Sam, Baumann and a few others are trying to develop an articulator system without plaster, from STL files, which, once printed, adapt to the proprietary bases of these manufacturers. The principle is excellent, but the setting in the articulator does not meet the precision requirements that a quality prosthesis requires.

 

For the simple reason that the current resins, present a reticulation of at least 0.3%, which causes a deformation of the base, and consequently a deformation of the plane of occlusion, as small as it is, this deformation  is not acceptable by a quality laboratory.

 

The upper and lower models of these systems  are integral with their bases, they are placed on supports of rigid articulators, which makes the positioning in centered relation, truncated by the reticulation of the resin. Without counting on a bad registration of the occlusion which also happens by scanning the arcades, and in this case you have to start all over again.

 

Gérard Gonzalez Murillo, prosthetist since 1974, in collaboration with a team of prosthetists, was the first to develop a plaster-free articulator system, combining digital and analog, essential in certain cases.

 

The ARTIX system is the only system of this type, protected by a French patent, ensuring the perfect positioning of digital models in an analog articulator.

 

The bonding of one of the models, lower or upper, guarantees positioning in O.I.M, without premature contacts due to the reticular deformation of the models. All prosthetists will understand that the glue joint, however thin it may be, compensates for this deformation and stabilizes it by constraint.
