7 working steps to a stable, physiological mandibular position in 7 weeks

1. Diagnostics | - DROS® Centric bite relation record | FAL evaluation | API/CPI

2. Fitting of DROS® I – splint | Relaxation

3. Fitting of DROS®  II - splint  | Adjustment and stabilisation

4. First Check-up | Tin foil check and fine adjustment

5. Second check-up | Fine adjustment

6. Third check-up | Fine adjustment

7. Final bite relation record API/CPI | stable condylar position (SCP)

After stable occlusion has been achieved, a functional and aesthetic wax Up is prepared. This forms the basis for subsequent prosthetic or orthodontic preparation of the teeth, if this is still necessary. The minimally invasive reconstruction is done using metal-free, high-quality prosthetic material such as veneers, ceramic partial crowns or zircon crowns.
