Diode laser application optimises the clinical out
Fig. 12: Articulation can be checked from various perspectives.
Fig. 9: Articulator with model of upper and lower jaw in the strip light scanner S600 ARTI.
Fig. 5: After laser application, the preparational margin is depicted clearly. This is mandatory for analogous as well as optical impression taking in order to achieve optimum results in the patient’s prosthetic rehabilitation.
Fig. 3: Working tip of the diode laser for haemostasis.
Fig. 13: Production and checking of the optimum occlusal configuration.
Fig. 14: Okklusal view of the digitally planned partial crowns.
Fig. 15: In the end of the digital planning phase, the restoration can be checked from all special dimensions even before the milling process.
Fig. 10: Depiction of the form of the preparation, especially the level ranges on the monitor, after cutting less relevant aspects of the model situation image digitally.
Fig. 11: Checking of the minimum layer depth for the future ceramic restoration is more practical than via the analogous model.
Fig. 8: Model under strip light (inside the scanner S 600 ARTI).
Fig. 6: Detail of the polyether impression taking (Impregum Penta Soft, ESPE Company, Seefeld, Germany) with individual impression tray confirms the exact depiction of the oral situation.
