The purpose of this study was to evaluate the precision of dimensional measurements of the mandible on orthopantomographic images and thus to evaluate their dimensional reliability. Different distances denoted by metal markers were measured on 25 dry mandibles. The same mandibles were then positioned in an orthopantomographic machine, and radiographic(More)

The problem of determining the position and lining of the teeth in total dentures is presented by a comparative examination of gnathometric variables in eugnathic subjects and in those wearing total dentures. The material consisted of 51 plaster casts of eugnathic subjects and 49 subjects wearing total dentures. The following were examined: upper total(More)
Determination of vertical dimension of occlusion by roentgencephalometric method, with the help of the angle of the lower third of the face, has been described in literature. The aim of this study was to modify the angle of the lower third of the face and correlate its determination with reference planes for orientation of casts in the articulators space,(More)
The position of teeth as potential bearers of dental bridges is important for the prosthetician in planning therapy. The aim of every prosthetic therapy is the rehabilitation of the masticatory organ and the establishment of natural conditions by an adequate prosthetic device. In practical work the distal ibearer, which is the last possible bridge bearer,(More)
