Precision Ceramics Dental Laboratory has developed a unique new process for equilibrating the occlusal surfaces of crown and bridge restorations, partial dentures and complete dentures.

The new process, called the Multiplanular Equilibration Technique, utilizes a specially designed articulator that has release buttons in the condylar region. When these buttons are depressed, the maxillary model is released from the centric position and allowed to float freely through wear facets and other anatomical landmarks to find paths of movement and identify unnatural interference.

The MET technique reduces dramatically, and, in most cases, eliminates entirely, the need for chairside occlusal adjustments.
