Introduction

Artex®

AG_Application_Artex_Incisal_Guidance_02

Lightweight, stable, ergonomic and very precise – the Artex articulator facilitates and accelerates work on the model. It is practice-oriented, reliable and competitively priced. For these reasons, the Artex brand enjoys such a good reputation and its articulators are among the most popular world-wide. The Artex product range employs a modular design and is focused on features that are really necessary.

Mounting Unit Mounting Unit

General Information
Pouring casts in a busy environment often calls for a separate plaster room to keep dust and debris from getting into places where it shouldn’t be. The Artex® Mounting Unit is calibrated to the functional Artex units throughout the lab, so poured models can be quickly and accurately transferred to workstations.
Features & Benefits
  • Save wear and tear on your functioning Artex units by protecting them from exposure to abrasive elements such as stone, water and heat that are involved in the mounting of patient models
  • Non-adjustable incisal pin ensures that every case is set at”0″

Facebow

Artex Facebow

header facebow-crop
General Information The Artex® Facebow is a priceless tool. It takes but a few moments and a single turn of the toggle to lock in in all 3 planes of reference and to subsequently gather all of the information necessary to ensure that a restoration is made to the exact cranium/axis relationship of the patient and their anatomy. That means fewer remakes for the technician and easier and faster seating for the dentist.
  Features & Benefits
  • Easy to use: No assistance is required to accomplish the facebow registration. Just one person can do it quickly and easily.
  • Fast: Stainless steel 3-D Universal Joint locks in registration with the turn of one toggle-lever.
  • Accurate: Single lever eliminates torque distortion often found in facebows that require screws. The Artex Facebow opens symmetrically, which means alignment without sideshift or alteration of the sagittal distance.
  • Economical: The doctor will send only the transfer table with registration, interocclusal records and impression so there is no need to buy multiple facebows or articulators.
  • Stress Free: The unit is easy to handle for the dental professional and keeps patient stress to a minimum.

Facebow Package Contents:
  • 3-D universal joint Nosebar/nasion
  • Pair of standard earballs

Optional Accessories:  
  • Extended earballs (48609)
  • Axis-plane pointer with screw (48610)
  • Vertically adjustable nasion (48690)

Transfer Stand
artex_transfer-stand1
General Information The Artex® Transfer Stand and table system allows the dentist to transfer patient specific facebow measurements consistently and predictably without spending a great deal of time and effort in the wet lab. The patient’s bitefork registration is transferred to the transfer stand and set in plaster on the table with a magnetic base. The magnetic transfer table and bitefork registration are sent to the lab, where the base is “snapped” into an Artex articulator with a magnetic base counter-part. This allows the lab to use the bitefork representing the maxillary registration for reference when mounting the upper cast.

DENTURE-COMPONENTS

The Artex® System offers benefits to the denture lab. By using the Artex system, dental labs can gather critical patient information that allows the denture to fit correctly at the first try-in.

 

System Components:

 

Set-Up Templates

Mounted onto the template holder, templates serve as a guide for setting dentures according to the occlusion curves of Spee and Wilson. Set includes a flat table for orientation of the mandibular model when mounting average value (i.e., without facebow information from the dentist.) Also includes templates with radii of 100mm (dental cuspid 0°), 125 mm (dental cuspid 15° to 16°), 140 mm (dental cuspid 25° to 28°) and 160 mm (30° to 35°).

 

Set-Up Index Key

Provided as a fundamental scale for average-value orientation of the endentulous lower model. Alignment is achieved by using symphysis and retro-molar pads.

Centrofix Set for CR Registration of Edentulous Patients

The tracing ball is used as a tray handle when the impression is taken. Threading permits vertical adjustments, allowing for dimension corrections in the mouth. The tip of the Gothic arch tracing is marked with the adjustment clamp, and the tracing ball is fixed in the clamp’s seat. Facebow transfer and wax bites for esthetic information are taken during the same session.

Splintex Splintex Calibration

splitex_product
Using the Splitex® Key and Splitex® Plate Set, all Artex® Articulators are calibrated similarly. This magnetic plate system serves as a metrical aid to calibrate different articulators. The precision of calibration is such that deviations are brought down to below 10 μm. This means that models can be mounted and changed with precision on any calibrated Artex®.
Additionally, the ability to calibrate the Artex® Articulators simplifies the process of transferring the model from the practice to the laboratory. Where both parties have a calibrated articulator, then only the models need to be transported, and not the complete articulator. Not only does this protect the articulator against handling problems,it also saves on postal charges.

Features & Benefits

  • Scientifically proven: Artex® Articulators can be calibrated to a standardization with tolerances < 10 μm
  • Saves articulators and increases their profitability
  • Every dental technician and dentist has his/her “own” articulator
  • Simplifies dispatch (only the model) and increases the information flow
  • Splitex® Counter plates prevent the risk of poor fit caused by plaster expansion and guarantee quick, precise adaptation to Splitex® metal plates
