Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The use of a dental facebow in diagnosis and treatment by the restorative dentist has been controversial in recent years. Digital alternatives have been proposed and hold promise for the future; however, the traditional facebow still has practicality in a modern restorative practice. The purpose of this paper is to review facebow use in clinical prosthodontic practice.
