Hello and Thanks for using JustAnswer.com. I can help you with your question. There is a machine available to dentist by Myotronics, Inc. This device is called the K7 system. It is a computer that measures the jaw relationships. This information can then be used to tell dentist where to set denture teeth in order to make a set of dentures. It basically allows a dentist to make the dentures where the muscles of the jaw are at their most relaxed state. It is used mostly by dentist that have been trained in Neuromuscular Dentistry. Not all dentist know about it so most don't use it. There may be other devices available, but this is the only one I know of that uses computers to determine the information. Best of Luck! Dr. Cliff

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
