Abstract : The SAM Contourator is an instrument developed to record topographic changes of the residual ridges after tooth extraction and to reveal dimensional behavior of ntal a erials. Model B, a modification of model A, reduced the procedural requirem nt of the instrument by allowing for easier and more rapid recording. T pantographic apparatus magnifies the area under study. The contour arm of the machine an t e rticul or r or fle ible and permit easier approach by the operator. (Author)
