An Insight In to Functionally Generated Pathway: A Review Article
The functionally generated path technique is a different method to achieve occlusal harmony in the oral cavity. Other than using an articulator to simulate the movement of the mandible, this technique utilizes a tracing. This is made directly in the mouth to capture the pathways travelled by the opposing cusps during mandibular function. This article discusses the functionally generated path technique in detail.
