Buckle Up and Grow
Expanding your laboratory is rarely as simple as hiring a few more employees and taking on a heavier caseload. It involves numerous challenges and varying degrees of change, often starting right at the top.
New Technology Helps Create Prosthetics with Predictable Results
The telescopic denture is a viable option for offering patients a prosthetic with longevity and serviceability. In this case study, Luke S. Kahng, CDT, explores how to utilize the latest technology to create this type of restoration using an in-house CAD/CAM system.
CAD/CAM Fabrication of Definitive Implant Prostheses
Today, more durable esthetic materials can be used to fabricate a hybrid denture. This case report from Harold S. Baumgarten, DMD, and Alexander Wünsche, CDT, illustrates the digital surgical planning for a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) guided implant placement, as well as the CAD/ CAM fabric
Improved Ovens Offer New Options for Firing
The current lineup of ceramic firing ovens brings with it new technology and more dependability and fabrication options, which equates to higher quality restorations, allowing technicians to fabricate ceramic restorations with more predictability and consistency than ever, writes Keith Miolen, CDT.
