Title (EN) DENTAL ARTICULATOR
(FR) ARTICULATION DE DENTIER
Abstract:
(EN) Styluses (25) defining a hinge axis (28) in a dental articulator are received in guide block pathways (68) defined by side walls (70, 72, 74, 76) and a curved upper wall (59). The blocks (48) are rotatably mounted to vary the slope of the upper wall (59). A supply of guide blocks is provided having a medial wall (80) with a rear curved portion which varies for different blocks based on average values. The user selects the blocks having the desired medial wall to provide the desired side shift. In one arrangement, the side walls are formed as a unit (64) and removeably mounted on the upper wall (59) and the user selects the side wall unit from a supply of units providing different degrees of side shift movement. In another form, the medial wall (97) is transversely adjustable.
(FR) Des pivots (25) definissant un axe de rotation (28) dans une articulation de dentier sont loges dans des lumieres de guidage usinees dans des blocs de guidage (48) et delimitees par des parois laterales (70, 72, 74, 76) et une voute superieure incurvee (59). Les blocs (48) peuvent pivoter de facon a modifier la pente de la voute superieure (59). On prevoit un jeu de blocs de guidage ayant une paroi mediale (80) dont la partie arriere est incurvee et differe pour differents blocs par rapport a des valeurs moyennes. L"utilisateur choisit les blocs qui presentent les parois mediales appropriees permettant d"obtenir le deplacement lateral voulu. Dans une disposition, les parois laterales forment un ensemble (64) et sont montees sur la voute (59) de facon amovible, et l"utilisateur choisit l"ensemble de parois laterales a partir d"un jeu d"ensembles permettant d"obtenir differents deplacements lateraux. Dans une autre disposition, la paroi mediale (97) peut etre ajustee transversalement.
