Individualized Arch Forms: The occlusal shape of each tooth can then be traced in an ideal position on this basic arch, and a customized ideal lower arch form can be constructed and used throughout treatment.

Occlusal Simulations: Marcotte and Burstone suggested setting the maxillary teeth around an idealized lower arch form so that it would be possible to do an occlusal simulation, or what is known as a “set-up”: without the time and inaccuracies inherent in a plaster model technique. Occlusal simulations permit the orthodontist to quickly see if the maxillary teeth even have the possibility of occluding with the lower correctly.
