Today's progressive technician is a valuable part of the dental team and should be involved in the case design process. Tom Bormes identifies the information needed by the technician and why it's needed to provide case design alternatives and options to the dentist. Learn how to request the necessary information and tools, such as mounted and articulated models, patient requirements, length and diameter of implants, overall quality of bone, patient dexterity, patient hygiene habits, muscular efficiency, para-functional habits and general health. The information helps you provide multiple options to the patient; select the correct bar, stud or magnetic connector; and recommend a tissue- or abutment-supported prosthesis. This course is a recommended prerequisite for the Stud Attachment, Bar Attachment and Removable Partial Denture courses.
