Created by the world leading gnathological expert, Professor Rudolph Slavicek, they reproduce the form and function of natural teeth. The 30° cuspal inclination of the upper first molar accords with his detailed research on the natural dentition.
They are designed not only for full dentures but also for implant stabilised and partial dentures where their fuller form enables them to be easily adapted both to the underlying implant structures and to the remaining dentition. enigmalife+ S posteriors look so real because they are modelled on nature’s own creations, honed by millennia of evolutionary development. Truly inspired by nature and designed for living.
While Professor Slavicek recommends that teeth be set up in
lingualised occlusion because this occlusal scheme directs the forces towards
the remaining bone, enigmalife+ can also be set up in
balanced occlusion or cross-bite. Whatever the occlusal arrangement they have
amazing function, with only minimal, if any, adjustments needed and with
contact being maintained across protrusive and side shift movements.
The palatal stamp cusps of the uppers have precise natural relationships with the corresponding fossa and marginal ridges of the lowers. This relationship enables the dentures to have maximum stability when the patient bites together and improves their comfort. Denture set up is made more positive and the requirement for clinical adjustments is reduced.
A typical mould is shown below.
