    Abstract: A dental articulation apparatus for creating a pinned model of a patient's mandibular and maxillary dental arches. The apparatus permits the simultaneous relation and construction of pinned, segmental models of the maxillary and mandibular dental arches and allows the model, die, and articulation to be accomplished in a single pouring. The articulator includes recessed maxillary and mandibular tray support members each containing a plurality of indexing holes into which indexing pins can be inserted. A negative dental impression is then filled with a casting material, or alternatively, the support members are filled with a casting material, and the support members and negative impression material are then joined together such that the indexing pins protrude through and into the casting material.
