These steps are dependent on close collaboration with the dentist. These are dental work steps which may be performed additionally to dental diagnostics. The focus is on the collection of information that is important to the dental technician for the creation of dental prosthesis.
What is dental analysis and diagnostics?
Dental analysis and diagnostics are among the most creative work involved in dental prosthetics. Not only in implant prostheses, but there in particular. Dental technology expertise is an essential component of the planning. However, in order to obtain a realistic evaluation of the diagnostics for the planning, this must be worked out physically and sensory tested by the patient being treated (test teeth). Only then, can we obtain the individual information where the natural oral home of the patient is located and which dimensional changes are possible for the dental prosthesis. Important to remember: in and around the region of the mouth the most sensory organs are endemic, particularly the tactile capacity of the tip of the tongue to the upper central incisors. This area takes a difference of 3μ into account! Therefore, a common field to approaching this work, which in fact essentially determines the success of whether the entire efforts to produce the substitute, does not compromise the patient's sensory system.
