Mr. Jeff Stubblefield, CDT:
My most value in my office that I just absolutely could not live without is my articulator.
I mean, I can not evaluate mountings. I can not evaluate models. I can not do the wristolator thing. It just does not work. So my desk always has the articulators on it. It has several because we use several systems for dentist preferences.
I just do not think I could use or evaluate any cases-- I could not construct them. I could not wax them. I could not do prototypes. I could not do anything if I could not put it on an articulator and take a look at what was really going on in the mouth.
