Staub Cranial Denture

RemovablesKarl Heinz Staub developed a scientific method of completing full dentures by merely using maxillary and mandibular models. Utilizing math and science, Staub software converts anatomical landmark measurements into tooth location and plane of occlusion without a traditional bite registration.

Appointment 1:
Send ROE Upper and Lower models that include all landmarks, especially tuberosity and hammular notch.

Appointment 2:
Your second appointment will be a tooth try-in and bite confirmation. Staub denture teeth are set in an ortho-cranial position with minimal technician or clinician subjectivity. All cases are set with lingualized occlusion. Make dentures profitable and exciting with Staub, and instill the confidence of your patient by allowing them to them to try-in their upper teeth at the second appointment.

Appointment 3:
Final Seat.

Staub Cranial Denture

The Staub™ Cranial system is a simple but effective way to locate the natural tooth position. Restorations are aligned based on cranial reference points and designed on the basis of mathematical calculations. This new approach challenges the use of average values or practitioner judgment and will set new standards both clinically and in the lab. There are times when restorative appliances have little if any resemblance to the natural dentition and have not been manufactured to be patient specific. This is especially true for denture wearers who commonly have two or three sets; one for looks, one for eating, etc. Dental technicians seldom see the patient and are left to manufacture what they believe a restoration should look like. The position, function, shape, and inclination are left to artistic discretion, not exact calculation. The premise of this technology is; every person has one (and only one) correct occlusal position.

This leaves us with the question: Are we capable of calculating maxillary exact tooth placement? With Staub™Cranial the answer is yes.
