Microcopy recently introduced the Bite-Chek articulation film with an "easy-grip" handle to simplify occlusal equilibration adjustments without the need for forceps. Bite-Chek accurately marks the points of contact, minimizing the possibility of "too high" an occlusion that can account for post-operative tooth sensitivity. Bite-Chek's thin profile helps patients close their bite completely, eliminating mandibular reflexes that can skew the occlusion.
