An articulator is a mechanical device used in dentistry to which casts of the maxillary (upper) and mandibular (lower) teeth are fixed, reproducing recorded positions of the mandible in relation to the maxilla. An articulator assists in accomplishing a more detailed diagnosis, treatment planning, the fabrication of removable prosthodontic appliances (dentures), fixed prosthodontic restorations (crowns, bridges,inlays and onlays).
