The purpose of this study has been to employ state-of-the-art digitizing technology, stereocine-photogrammetric algorithms and spatial kinematics in the generation of a system for quantification of human jaw motion in three dimensions. Planar and spatial plots and finite displacement screw axes have been used to represent the motion. To check system precision and accuracy a specially designed dental articulator which duplicates some of the motions of the human jaw is used.
