No Artex, no profit. Know Artex, know profit

Facebows and precision articulators can significantly improve functional analysis of dental casts and improve case-requirement communication with your laboratory for maximum accuracy.

Click here to enlarge image

Jensen's calibrated Artex articulator and Rotofix facebow, for use by dentist or assistant, easily provide patient-related occlusal refer- ences. Artex reduces equipment loss and shipping costs because only a plaster-set bitefork is sent to the lab for mounting in Artex. An acc-urate yet simple mounting system, Artex can be an important communication tool for dentists to evaluate cases prior to insertion.
