How to best choose the BC?

The choice of balancers must be made on the basis of the dental class in which the patient is located (I, II and III class), the shape of the arch (narrow, expanded, squared) and consequently the cranial shape (dolichofacial, mesiofacial, brachyfacial). 

After taking the impressions and developing the model, the distance between the palatine cusps of the upper quarters (14 and 24) is measured with a ruler. Finally, the correctness of the BC is verified by testing it on the plaster model.
