In this in-depth video tutorial, Dr. Jack Ringer compares the differences between analog and digital impressions when manufacturing indirect restorations. As a dentist who has abundant experience using both analog and digital impression methods in his own practice, he explains the step-by-step workflow of both analog and digital systems. He furthermore compares the benefits and negatives of both techniques in terms of cost, efficiently, patient comfort, time, precision and technology of different digital systems.
Proper Shade taking methods are crucial to fabricating the most realistic restoration possible in today's modern dentistry world. Gone are the days of hiring an in-house technician for all your dentistry needs. Today most dentists outsource to laboratories for the creation of dental products which means location proximity is a concern when it comes to shade taking. Fear not, for technology is an extremely powerful tool, allowing dentists to accurately record and send patient's shade information and documentation (ie. photographs) directly to the laboratory for a precise and aesthetic replication.
Taking techniques implemented in his own practice, Dr. Jack Ringer dissects shade taking methods in this in-depth tutorial. Using the Vitapan 3D Master shade guide, Dr. Ringer explains the role that hue, value, and chroma play when capturing this necessary data to send to the laboratory for fabrication.
There are many analog impression methods available today. Due to fact that the laboratory works off this impression to fabricate the restoration, it is vital to record the best impression to minimize the chance of producing an ill fitting crown restoration.
Dr. Jack Ringer DDS of Advanced Smile Design goes into detailed impression taking methods and discusses the differences between trays, impression mediums, and methods. Dr. Ringer explains the best route to choose depending on the clinical situation.
