Dental Laboratory Communication for the Dental Assistant
A dental model is used in dentistry so the dentist can have a replica of the patient's teeth, gingiva, and surrounding tissues in the mouth. Models can be used for studying purposes to determine the patient's course of treatment. They can also be used for the fabrication of appliances like whitening trays, mouthguards, and more. In this learn, the dental assistant will be able to understand techniques to fabricate, pour, and trim diagnostic study cast along with facebow transfer and mounting that cast on a semi-adjustable articulator. Once the records are complete, we will then go into the communication between the dentist, assistant, and laboratory technician.
