PalaMeter – versatile measuring instrument


Flexible uses: The PalaMeter is a versatile measuring instrument for accurate prosthetics.

The PalaMeter assists you with measuring important prosthetic dimensions such as arch and recess dimensions. The PalaMeter also includes angle templates, a cutout for the lip frenum and a practical pencil guide. The practical design made from fully flexible material and the helpful color coding makes the PalaMeter particularly easy to use. The PalaMeter is a wide range of prosthetic measuring instruments in one – at an excellent price.
We worked with dental technicians and dentists to design the PalaMeter specifically for the daily requirements of the dental practice and the laboratory.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Easy to use
  • Flexible application
  • Developed together with dental technicians and dentists.
  • Universal because it combines a range of dental measuring instruments.

The practical design made from fully flexible material and the helpful color coding makes the PalaMeter particularly easy to use.

Its measurement capabilities are labeled as follows:
- Angular dimension in degrees (°)
- Arch gauge in mm
- Probe in 1/10 mm
- Millimeter grid

Measurement options with PalaMeter

In this way, you accurately determine various prosthetic measurement values with the PalaMeter:
Measuring the width of a gap/tooth:
The width is measured at the height of the contact point and provides a scale for the width of the replacement tooth.
Measuring dimensions for implantology/implant planning:
The evaluation of the clinical volume for the implant placement and the implant prosthetics is important at the planning stage.
Measuring the aesthetic bite rim/wax wall measurement of the two cuspids:
The distance between the long axis of the two cuspids (measurement of the appliance width on a curve).
Measuring the appliance width:
Calculating the appliance width on the bar.
Height of the aesthetic bite rim/vertical measurements at the wax wall.
The difference between the top margin of the aesthetic wall and the smile line is a scale for the length of the denture teeth.
Height of incisal length
The visible tooth component can be checked metrically.
Measuring the dental arch/Measurement with flexible dental arch gauge.
The flexibility of the PalaMeter makes measurements of the dentition easy.
Position of the mandibular arch in relation to the maxilla/The comparison with the limit value of the cross-bite indication (80°).
The alveolar ridge connecting lines form an angle to the occlusal plane.
Determine lowest point of the alveolar ridge profile.
The flexibility of the PalaMeter makes alignment easy for determining the tangent at the alveolar ridge line.
Marking the molar point
The PalaMeter allows a perpendicular line to be run to anatomically important points.
Draw a 22.5° angle starting from the occlusion centre.
The guide areas and the transparency of the PalaMeter make it easy to check the angle.
Stop line/Draw a perpendicular from the intersection.
A definitive dental stop line can be defined in relation to the anatomical alveolar ridge with the 90° line.
Transfer to the maxilla/Position of molar point in the maxilla:
Points on the mandible can be transferred vertically to the maxilla with the ruler.
Checking with the millimetre grid.
Easily achieved planning security, options for monitoring and final checks in all areas of prosthetics and implantology.
Finding and marking the midline.
The anterior and posterior anatomical midline is determined and marked.
Marking without parallax errors/Marking by the markers
The median line forms the connection between the two marks.
Inclination of the lower first molar/Verifying tooth tilts with the angular dimension.
Angles between tooth surfaces (e.g. occlusal surface) and a plane (e.g. Camper's plane) can be determined.
Dentition according to occlusion centre and stop line/Maintenance of positions with correct selection of tooth size.
The size of the teeth can be recorded metrically by the distance from the distal end of the incisor to the molar point.
