Getting a Simple Handle on Articulation Download PDF Occlusal management is a foundational pillar of dental care excellence. The stability of natural oral structures (pulpal tissues; periodontal margins; enamel integrity) and implants (bone loading effects on density) are greatly impacted by force vectors and intensity on teeth. Since occlusal conditions can be fluid and change due to natural conditions or trauma, at any time, dental professionals must be able to efficiently gather data, diagnose, and fine-tune bite changes to teeth, restorative materials, and bite appliances. When practices are already dealing with the challenges of time management and overhead costs, reaching into drawers for instrumentation and materials like bite forceps and articulating paper presents an interruption in the flow of the appointment and infection control protocols. Fortunately, there are innovative companies in dentistry like Microcopy, a Kennesaw, GA based firm (just north of Atlanta) that has a long history of creating streamlined simplifications that have benefitted dental practices (including my own) for many years. A new product called Bite-Chek has been designed and manufactured at Microcopy’s state-of-the-art production facility. It represents the high point of Microcopy’s commitment to developing easy-to-use products that simplify dentistry.
