As a dentist who practices within the largest lab in the U.S., I have access to tens of thousands of dentist’s impressions on a monthly basis. As a result, I have an intimate knowledge of the successful habits of dentists getting the best restorative results, and what holds other dentists back. My mission is to help dentists identify, correct and ultimately prevent fixed impression snafus. When dentists take better impressions they are happier, more profitable, and most importantly, the patient receives excellent restorative dentistry. By the end of this webinar, you should:
1. Be familiar with the definition of an ideal impression, and learn to recognize one before it is poured up
2. Learn effective methods of tissue management, and tissue retraction in a vertical and horizontal direction.
3. Be familiar with the double arch impression technique, and the various tray/polyvinyl siloxane combinations that can produce excellent impressions and restorations.
4. Learn why high-strength, cementable, all-ceramic monolithic restorations have largely replaced the pfm in the country’s largest laboratory.
