The parallelometer is an instrument in the dental laboratory that is used to carry out prosthesis design, model surveying, and attachments assembly. The parallelometer is a vertical arm that is movable and brought into contact with the teeth and ridges of the dental cast. A parallelometer can be used either intraorally or extraorally. A dental parallelometer provides a precise and parallel alignment of abutment connectors for precision fitting dental attachments. The impressions are taken of the cut teeth, models are prepared in the laboratory from the impressions, and the connectors are temporarily fastened to the abutment teeth of the model.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), dental caries is a highly common chronic childhood disease that continues into adulthood. Among U.S. adults, 2011–2014 national data indicates that 32.7% had untreated dental caries. Among adults in the U.S., aged 19 to 64, only 7.4% have Medicaid dental benefits and an alarmingly, 33.6% have no dental insurance benefits. According to WHO-World Health Organization, untreated dental caries, such as tooth decay in permanent teeth, is a highly common health condition. According to the Global Burden of Disease 2017, more than 530 million children suffer from dental caries of primary teeth or milk teeth.
According to Clujul Medical, studies reported the range from 9.4% to 41.6% in primary dentition. Traumatic injuries in permanent teeth have been reported to have a prevalence rate between 6.1% to 58.6%. The prevalence of dental injury is an average 10%. In a global systematic review by Petti et al., the estimated number of individuals, from 7 to 65 years of age, with injured permanent teeth was approximately 900 million. According to Journal of Endodontics, the highest incidence for dental injuries per 1000 individuals is found up to 12 years of age; in higher ages, the incidence is lower. In Denmark, the annual cost of treatment only of traumatic dental injuries, including adults, ranges from US $2 to $5 million per million inhabitants per year.
