Combines tried and tested principles of measuring facial height and freeway space with Astek design technology to guarantee pinpoint accuracy and significantly improved ease of use.

The Alma Bite Gauge is used to determineand prescribe the correct vertical dimension of new and replacement dentures and to diagnose errors in old dentures.

An adequate freeway space is necessary for prostheses to function properly. The AlmaBite Gauge provides a new level of simplicity and accuracy in assessing this. It is used to measure the vertical dimension of the face first with the mandible in its rest position(RVD) then with the teeth in occlusion(OVD). The difference between these two readings is commonly called the freeway space (FWS). By careful adjustments at various clinical stages it is possible to make new dentures with an optimum freeway space. This will assist in the success of the dentures.
