A Systematic Approach to Case Fabrication
Posted Feb 13, 2014 in Technical
Restoring a full mouth predictably and profitably requires a systematic approach, from selecting qualified patients and case presentation to case planning, fabrication and delivery. Each step is dependent on the previous one to avoid unexpected and unwanted surprises and ensure total success.
In our laboratory, we’ve developed the Smile-Vision Template TechniqueTM, a process through which we create a computer simulation showing how the final restorations will look in the patient’s mouth. We start with the ideal end result in mind and work backwards from there. We’ve broken down the fabrication process into incremental steps, with each step having to be verified and approved by all parties involved before moving to the next step. The ability to deliver the results shown in the simulation is dependent on proper planning, diagnostics, and using the best tools and materials available.
One of those tools is the Sirona inLab® system which saves time, offers flexibility and enables our technicians to take advantage of technology while still using their artistic skills to the fullest. The following case demonstrates the use of the Template Technique and the inLab system.
Sirona inLab® System
Sirona’s inLab system includes the inEos® X5 scanner; inLab SW 4.2 with virtual articulation and smile design; the inLab MC XL milling unit; digital impressions via Sirona Connect; and the inFire HTC speed sintering furnace. The equipment can be used individually or in combination. For more information, call 800-659-5977 or 855-INLAB4U, email inLabMarketing@sirona.com or visit www.inLab.com.
