  • Patent number: 4164074
    Abstract: Dental articulator formed with individually adjustable, upper and lower carrier plates, each having means for quick-coupling to one of an interchangeable pair of planar mounts (each mount adapted to adhesively support an assembled denture against one of its faces). A pair of matching dentures can thus be assembled either within or away from the articulator, mounted and tested for occlusion therein, and subsequently reworked (as often as necessary) either within or when removed from the articulator. Essentially a pair of thrust-coupling or threaded attachment means on the carrier plate or on the mount, engage corresponding sockets of the opposite member. Formulation of the mount of inexpensive plastic enables discard after single use.
