Abstract

A common challenge in full-mouth rehabilitation is preserving the correct spatial orientation of the maxillary diagnostic, diagnostic wax-up and master casts within the dental articulator. Any malposition of the maxillary master cast will immediately invalidate the articulator settings that were programmed from the pantographic or axiographic tracing. This will subsequently affect the occlusal morphology of the restorations. The technique presented in this article helps to precisely relocate the maxillary master cast to the same spatial orientation as both the initial diagnostic, and diagnostic wax-up casts.
