Share Abstract:

The reproducibility of condylar hinge axis positions in patients, by different operators, using the electronic mandibular position indicator

PMID: 7812230

Three operators each made five recordings from 15 symptomatic patients using the electronic mandibular position indicator. The method consisted of measuring bilateral spatial changes of the hinge axis recalculated by the computer to an intercondylar distance of 110 mm and a third position, calculated from the rotation of the hinge axis, at the incisal guidance table. All individual patient recordings were related to the origin of the same coordinate system. This origin is designated and defined as the reference position, with purposeful elimination of any stated joint position for this definition. The measurements were in all planes of space at 10-millimicron increments, including the rotation of the transverse hinge axis in hundredths of degrees. These data showed that the reproducibility of hinge axis positions, ie, reference positions, to hinge axis condylar positions dictated by the maximum intercuspation of teeth was in average less than 0.2 mm for each record from all operators and patients.
