The patient is always centre stage in dental treatment. An artificial patient is required in accepted dental training and postgraduate education settings and for demonstrations and courses in dental procedures. The teeth and study models must closely match the external configuration of the human head, such as one sees in a phantom head.
The functional interconnection between the shape of the tooth and the jaw joints can be usefully calculated didactically with the use of the appropriate patient simulators (G40, G50). The attachment system for the teeth in the model base reliably prevents the loss of occlusion in the models when teeth are exchanged. The freedom of lateral movement of the teeth and the inter-dental spaces created permit working with matrix strips and coffer dams. Thanks to the freedom of movement in the horizontal plane of the simulator teeth in the physiological area, it is possible to work under "near-human" conditions.
KaVo tooth models are available for different treatment purposes: prosthetics, restorative dentistry, periodontics, pedodontics, surgery, implantology, etc.
KaVo study models and teeth area are based on a copy of an original patient with all pertinent anatomical and morphological details
The cleverly designed retention mechanism holds the simulated teeth precisely in the model base, yet allows them to be easily removed by means of extraction forceps
