Finally a Tooth Design to Satisfy Both Patient and Dentist
The linear occlusal design of these Centric-Line posterior teeth is successful because it has one dimensional contact. It permits your patient to masticate while the teeth self adjust. This means fewer office visits and a less traumatic post insertion period for your patient.
16S = 28.5/28.5
16M = 30.5/32.5
16S = 30.4/30.0
16M = 32.2/32.4
Note: The approximate width in millimeters of the four posteriors on one side (2 molars and 2 bicuspids)
Porcelain and Plastic
Centric-Line posteriors are available in either porcelain or plastic
with the exclusive linear occlusal design.
Centric-Line posteriors are specifically designed for increased denture stability and wearing comfort. The "knife-like"
cutting action of the Centric-Line posterior
- increases chewing efficiency,
- decreases occlusal trauma,
- eliminates lateral forces, and
- self adjusts
Excellent in all applications.
Centric-Line teeth are successfully utilized in overdenture treatment
with implants and for patients with advanced alveolar bone resorption
(no lower ridges). Centric-Line teeth are available in either plastic
(block form with medical stainless steel blade) or porcelain (individual
teeth). Both with the "exclusive" linear occlusal design.
Posteriors are approximately 0°.
M-O (Metal Occlusal) Posterior Teeth have a time-proven design for
maximum masticating efficiency with minimum vertical and horizontal
stress to the supporting ridges. The thin ribbon of Vitallium®
that extends very slightly beyond the occlusal surface of the tooth
presents a number of important functional advantages that cannot be
found in any other posterior tooth available.
