Articulating paperis a diagnostic tool used in dentistry to highlight occlusal contacts and the distribution of occlusal forces. That is, it marks those points on the teeth where the teeth contact during biting and grinding. It is impregnated with hydrophilic waxes and pharmaceutical oils. This unique combination with the bonding agent enhances detection of high spots on hard to locate surfaces, such as highly polished metals or ceramics. Its hydrophilic properties make it advantageous for use on moist occlusal surfaces - a highly desirable attribute.
