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.

Basic Anatomy to Custom Tray covers the impression process with the patient, and the use of preliminary and custom impression trays. The video starts with maxillary edentulous anatomy followed by mandibular edentulous anatomy and includes a step by step explanation of landmarks and how dentures interact with landmarks.

Additionally, the video will demonstrate the preliminary impression/models, how to fabricate the custom tray and make the final impression, and will finish up with identifying maxillary and mandibular landmards on the model.

Graphics and photo images are used throughout the entire video to help participants visualize each step in thorough detail. The video wraps up with review questions and terms.

Fabrication of Bite Rims and Patient Use transitions to a point where the patient will be fitted with a base plate and bite rims. This appliance will aid the dentist and laboratory in determining the vertical height necessary to produce a well fitted denture. The two major components of this video are fabricating the base plate and bite rim, and maxillary and mandibular bite registration.

Participants will learn the how to prepare and outline master models, fabricate light cured base plates, apply wax sticks, industry measurements, and how to trim and finish the wax. The video wraps up with review questions and terms.

Processing, Finish and Polish and Delivery, wraps up the five-module removable video program. The laboratory technician receives the verified try-in from the dentist and gets the wax ups ready for investment followed by processing with acrylics.

In this video, the press packing method will be demonstrated followed by the processing, finishing and polishing. Patient instructions for care are discussed showing additional collaboration between the dentist, and the laboratory to benefit the patient. The video wraps up with review questions and terms.
