Collapse A Start to Finish Guide for Fabricating Implant-Retained Appliances

This lecture will guide participants through fabrication considerations for implant-retained appliances related to: treatment planning, setting and trying the case, designing the bar on the laboratory software, milling the substructure, transferring the teeth to the bar, waxing the case to final contour, and processing techniques. We will discuss steps to be taken to facilitate efficient processing of cases with implant-retained substructures based on your preferred processing technique (injection, pack, or pour).

    Collapse Complete Dentures: Tips and Tricks to Meet the Demand

    With the demand for complete denture on the rise and the dwindling number of denture technicians, it has become more imperative than ever for all dental technicians to have a basic understanding of how to fabricate quality removable prosthetics. The increase of implant over dentures is just another factor in the importance of having at least a fundamental understanding of fabricating traditional denture work. In order to be a competent denture technician it does not only mean understanding the basics at the bench but also what it means to work in cohesion with your clinicians. The goal of this course is to touch base on all steps involved in fabricating a functional and aesthetic complete denture while reducing chair time for the clinician. The course will include but not limited to the following:

    • Fabrication of proper custom tray
    •  Model analysis
    • Occlusal rims
    •  Articulation with the absence of a facebow
    • Choosing proper tooth molds and occlusal schemes
    • Setting of teeth in a timely fashion
    • Wax characterization
    • Processing
    • Selective grinding
    • Finishing and polishing

    Collapse Virtual Full Denture Training Program

    NEW: The program is underwritten and produced through the generosity of DENTSPLY Prosthetics to provide new learning tools for dental technicians in removable technology that will enrich the Foundation's removable curriculum.

    This 5-module removable video program documents a patient case from initial chairside assessment through placement of the final dentures. Each individual module was scripted and produced to document each step of the denture process between the dentist and the dental laboratory technician.

    Dr. Lars Bouma and Mr. Jerry Kaizer, CDT (Murray-Kaizer Dental Lab, CDL) provided clinical and technical guidance throughout the program development and production. This unique program provides a visualization of the chairside and laboratory protocols and delivers key insights into the collaboration needed between the dentist and the technician to ensure the best denture solution for the patient. 

    This course is broken into the five modules shown below:

    1. Basic Anatomy To Custom Tray

    2. Fabrication of Bite Rims and Patient Use 

    3. Articulation and Set-Up

    4. Wax-Up, Try-In, and Adjustments

    5. Processing, Finish & Polish, and Delivery

    This course is approved for 2.5 hours of Scientific Credit through the National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology (NBC). This video will be available in your Foundation Learning Library Classroom for 90 days from your purchase date and will expire after that time.

    Part one of this video describes the use of the rotational path in insertion and designing removable partial dentures for maxillary class IV partially edentulous arches. Its great advantages are the elimination of clasps to improve esthetics and reduction of tooth coverage to minimize plaque accumulation. Part two continues with use of the rotational path concept in the maxillary and mandibular class III bilateral partially edentulous arches. The use of such design eliminates conventional clasps and selected abutments, and therefore improves esthetics and oral hygiene.
