EXTRA tools for case planning:

  • Digital pictures: Getting patients expectations met can be challenging,don’t forget to email us at Asteto your digital pictures so our techs have the chance for the best possible outcome!
  • Your impressions: There are some new more reasonably priced impression materials out there on the market,call us(ask for Marc) for info but regardless,using a heavy body with a wash technique has proven successful. Be sure to examine your impression before sending your patient home.
  • Bite registrations: The patient is numb, has no idea what ‘centric’ means so your staff needs to help guide them through the bite process. Remember that the less bite material used between the opposing dentitions, the better.
  • Your prescription to the laboratory: Don’t forget the shade, the return date, specific designs,etc.

Common challenges:

  1. If your temp is loose in contact with adjacent teeth, tooth movement can cause tight contacts for the final restoration(and likewise if too tight, the final restoration may have an open contact!) so take a little more time making a nice temp so that the final restoration may be adequately fitted.
  2. Make sure your temp is not ‘loose’ in occlusion with the opposing teeth,because this can cause multiple adjustments on the final restoration.
  3. Sometimes larger cases may need to be reviewed for accuracy,and even though it could mean additional appointments, be open to taking ‘try-ins’ rather than going right to finish. Asteto Dent Labs does not charge anything extra for try-ins in fixed or re-moveable restorations.
