The ability to take a good impression is difficult when you consider the environment of which you are working. The importance of a good impression is crucial in reducing chair time and increasing patient convenience. If you have ever had to schedule a patient back into the office to take another impression, you know all too well the ramifications of that second visit. Even the most skilled practitioner can encounter difficulties while taking an impression. One aspect of reducing remakes and that additional patient visit is to evaluate the impression to assure it is accurate before sending to your dental laboratory for crown or denture fabrication.
Our staff at Image Dental Arts are always looking for ways to improve procedures and assist dental offices in increasing their profitability. During one of our training sessions, we viewed a webinar from Whip Mix addressing this very topic of impression taking. While some of the information is geared towards dental labs, we thought this webinar may be beneficial to the clinicians at dental practices.
This webinar is available at no charge and may be viewed at your convenience.
Image Dental Arts thanks Whip Mix for providing this webinar:
Reducing Remakes by Evaluating Impressions Prior to Pouring
Many times Technicians miss the opportunity to diagnose problems with impression records prior to the pour. After the introduction of Gypsum materials the problem is, as they say, “cast in stone”. Many continue on with the case trying to avoid or overcome critical problem areas.
In this Webinar we will look at common impression errors that should be corrected by the clinician prior to manufacture of the prosthetics by the technologist.
This Webinar is worth 1 Scientific CE Credit.
