Treatment Planning and Clinical Application Techniques by Dr. Michael Fling
This presentation provides seven specific steps necessary to complete a diagnostic wax up (or digital workup) at the workbench. While it may not be practical for dentists to complete their own “wax-up”, you will be exposed to the perimeters that must be conveyed to the technician for appropriate completion. Next, seven specific steps of clinical restorative sequence and clinical application will be reviewed as per the footprint that was developed in the lab. The clinician will understand the steps necessary for completion of simple and complex restorative cases.
You will learn:
The importance of Global Diagnosis in treatment planning
Specific steps of Global Restorative Sequence
How the anterior segment dictates form and function
What considerations must be given to altering VDO and what are the ramifications to altering VDO
How to utilize a “Rapid Waxer” for fast and easy wax up
Various direct and indirect techniques for Provisionalization and testing outcomes
How to take bite registrations for accurate mounting and for cross mounted models
How to make cross mounted indexes for the technician to ensure proper restoration contours
Methods for phasing complex restorative treatment plans
Utilizing injectable composite techniques in your practice
