Patient / Jaw simulators
The KaVo jaw simulators G20, G40 and G50 reproduce the movements of the lower jaw very realistically and are identical in design with the KaVo PROTARevo articulators. This system enables students to prepare a tooth in the patient simulator and easily transfer the tooth model into the articulator without losing any reference.
- KaVo jaw simulators reproduce all key anatomical dimensions and reference points of the human head
- Thanks to their robust construction, they prove ideal for use in dental education schools
- Different types of face masks with various mouth openings and outflows complete the patient simulator
G50 – the adjustable jaw simulator for training and continuing education.
Setting the incisal edge distance. An incisal edge distance of between 20 mm and 50 mm can be selected in the G50. This permits simulation and practice on patients with variable mouth opening sizes.
The G50 condylar boxes have centric locks which precisely set the centric position of the condyles in the closed state. This results in precise reproducible occlusal contacts.
The condylar path angle can be set between –10° and +60°.
G40 – the ideal jaw simulator for dental training
- Solid condylar boxes made of metal for daily use in dental training.
- Average values are used to set the condylar path angle and Bennet
- The mouth opening is set at 50 mm.
G20 – for the newcomer to the world of KaVo jaw simulators
- The G20 jaw simulator offers extremely easy handling and robust
construction through use of stainless steel which is absolutely
- Simple orientation of the mandibular and maxillary jaw models via
the model contours in the G20 jaw simulator
- All essential anatomical settings use average values
- Curved condylar boxes.
Realistic treatment options
Use of KaVo jaw simulators allows the clinician and assistants to practice a range of treatment options on the patient simulator very realistically. The condylar box guide paths closely approximate to the natural condition. The effects of the condylar guide path on the articulation movements can be precisely analysed.
Height setting for different models (third party models also accommodated). Ideally matched for KaVo models.
Condylar axis and movement
Rotational movement of the condylar axis
With a mouth opening of up to 15 mm incisal edge distance the condyles complete a full rotational movement.
Anterior condylar movement
With a greater mouth opening, the condyles also move in an anterior direction.
The mandible closes when the lateral touch buttons are pressed. This is also possible with face mask applied.
