When performing a digital scan to provide the necessary data, some best practices can help optimize the scan to ensure case success.
A successful case relies on the data that is captured. The digital workflow for the fabrication of an appliance is as follows:
- Make sure the area to be scanned is relatively dry.
- Make sure to slowly move the scanner to stay on each area to capture the necessary area.
- Rotate the scanner to capture the patient's gingiva.
Please note that analog impressions can also be taken, and Burbank Dental Lab will convert the impression into digital data so the case can be digitally designed and printed.
There are many reasons to offer occlusal guards in dentistry. This past year under an unprecedented global pandemic, many people found themselves in high-stress situations. The need to protect the patient's natural teeth, restorations, or both has become overwhelmingly necessary. Helping people get out of pain is one of the best services we can provide.
Dentistry will keep moving forward, offering new systems, technologies, and materials to keep pushing the industry to provide better and better options for treatment.
In keeping with one of our core values, Burbank Dental Lab is committed to investigating and researching these new technologies to make sure the clinicians who work with us are receiving the best the industry has to offer.
