Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article describes a technique for measuring the length of the edentulous space to be restored and transferring the same size of the dentate space on the contralateral side to plan for symmetrical definitive restorations for the restorative dentist and orthodontist. The technique involves incorporating 2 archwire locks with hooks on a stainless steel wire that can be easily moved and adjusted to assess the curved space being measured.
