Arcus Digma II is a device / computer system which determines with high precision the position and trajectory of the mandibular joint during opening and closing of the mouth. . The temporomandibular joint is the most complicated joint in the human body due to its three-dimensional spatial movements of rotation and translation.
The ARCUS Digma II measures and records the movements and positions of the patient’s jaw. These values are then used by our clinics on-site laboratory ensuring a precision fit and efficient production of restorations – Crowns, Bridges, Prosthesis, Dentures. In combination, the ARCUS Digma and the Protar Articulation System offers the dentist and the laboratory technician a simplified approach to creating a more aesthetic and precise functional prosthesis.
This technology also helps in determining the exact height of the bite which has significance in the cases of large-span prostheses, dentures, and prostheses produced for implants.
Incorrectly reconstructed bite and prosthetics that prevent natural movement and those that are made in an unnatural position can cause problems with joints or lead to premature loss of crowns or bridges. Arcus Digma II is extremely useful for compensation of lost teeth with implants, because the correct bite and distribution of forces also contribute to the longevity of implantation and the implants themselves.
The ARCUS Digma II from Kavo represents the next generation of innovative, practical diagnostic technologies it is an irreplaceable device in dental prosthetics.
