Twin-Stage Porcedure. Part 2: A Clinical Evaluation Test
The Twin-Stage Procedure was used to measure the amount of disocclusion reproduced on the articulator (in vitro) and in the mouth (in vivo). The results almost coincided, even without measurement of the condylar path. By using this new procedure, quantitiative control of the amount of disocclusion, which was previuosly impossible, has become a reality in daily clinical procedures. The amount of disocclusion occurring on an articulator coincided with the amount of disocclusion intraorally; therefore, the Twin-Stage Porcedure is considered to be highly reliable.
