Description

When taking conventional impressions to communicate intraoral structures to a dental laboratory, adhering to a regimen that promotes ample gingival retraction, sufficient impression rigidity and maximum intercuspation can go a long way to reducing the need for later adjustments to the resulting restoration. Effectively capturing a patient’s unique biology, as well as pinpointing potential impression pitfalls while still chairside, will increase both the quality and swiftness of the patient care a clinician is able to provide. In this presentation, Dr. Michael DiTolla uses a case example from Episode 54 of Chairside Live to highlight key components of a quality impression, as well as attributes detrimental to a successful restorative outcome, when attempting to convey error-free information to the laboratory.

Participants who view this presentation will acquire useful clinical information on what to look for and methods to implement to effectively and accurately transmit intraoral structures to the laboratory, including:
