Here is a very brief description and a few images of how we achieved this result. We will be posting full run throughs via Lee’s Tech Talk blog at a later date. More cases can be viewed at eplantdentistry.com
Firstly we made a set up using the pre pressed e.Plant teeth available from e.Plant Dentistry.

BDT Technicians Lee & Phil are attending the 3 day Gerber Course this week.
The course is run by Technicians Mark Price and Max Bosshart and is based on the long standing Gerber Philosophy.
The course is a denture based and will add to the skills already amassed over years of hard word work and training.
This morning we familiarised ourselves with Gothic Arch Tracing and the importance of recording centric relation in edentulous patients.
After the break we were introduced to the Deltaform range of teeth and the advantages gained by utilising their unique occlusal forms.
The Deltaform teeth were designed by one of the tutors Mr Max Bosshart.
The afternoon session involved throwing away the rule book on traditional denture setups and utilising the Condylator Articulator and Deltaform teeth to produce a wax set up following the Gerber principal.
So far the course has proven to be extremely informative and the tutors shown to have a knowledge base that is second to none in this field.
A great days learning at a fantastic facility!
Max and Mark look on as Lee starts the Gothic arch tracing process.
