Once an initial plan is determined, it is always advised that the wax-up be completed prior to the final restorations. This allows the technicians to mock up the case according to the initial plans and patient desires. It allows the lab to discover any possible limitations, but more importantly, it will give the patient the opportunity to try the proposed treatment prior to the fabrication of the final restorations.
Both the patient's maxillary and mandibular arches were scanned with an intra-oral scanner. In addition, the patient's bite was captured digitally, and this data was uploaded to Burbank Dental Labs’ digital portal.
Digital scans require the following:
- Scan both the upper and lower arch.
- Scan the bite for proper occlusion.
- Rotate the digital scanning wand at least 4-5 mm to ensure adequate gingival tissue is captured.
- Check to make sure all of the relevant data has been adequately captured before sending in the file.
