Making your own lab work used to be part of every dentistry curriculum, but in recent years this has taken a back seat, and many dentists do not feel well informed about laboratory procedures.
This Dentaljuce module takes you through the lab stages for a variety of indirect restorations.
Member Feedback on Laboratory Techniques
- Wonderful videos.
- This module was important in understanding the processes involved in creating indirect restorations and as well as what would be required from a clinician to send to the lab in terms of preps etc to fabricate the best indirect restoration for the patient.
- It did make me give thought to design and fit from the beginning.
- Helpful in me identifying potential design problems with intra-oral preparations.
