Abstract

In this present study, we introduce an approach that utilizes the VR articulator to mimic lateral excursions and design a functional occlusal surface. We then take the resultant occlusal surface from this approach and compare it with a conventional method. As a result, we developed a novel CAD/CAM system which can render a functional occlusal surface, via a VR articulator. The marginal fit and occlusion in our CAD/CAM crown was sufficient to apply to the clinic.
