What is an optimized fit and what does that have to do with Position, Yaw, Pitch and Roll? In dentistry, connection stability is important from a mechanical and biological point of view. Optimized fit terminology can be used to describe a connection that can remain stable under load over time. The longer the better. Optimally fitting parts can also be expected to prevent the passage and proliferation of oral microbes in and about them. This could prevent related oral diseases.
