Mechanical Routers, Dental Laboratory

Definition : Mechanical routers designed for making smooth (e.g., rounded) edges and/or to mill out the surface of dental prostheses frequently following a template. Dental laboratory routers typically consist of a benchtop machine with an electric motor, a base, and a revolving vertical spindle and cutting tools (e.g., bits); the routers may include lights to provide illumination, heated knives for wax cutting, and/or a support for the piece (e.g., a vise clamped to a bench) that is being conformed. Dental laboratory routers may be used to trim and/or repair prostheses from a variety of materials (e.g., ceramic, plastic) and of many different types, including partial prostheses and dentures. Dedicated routers using computer-aided systems are also available.
