Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Summary This report is about all the information required to progress a single fixed restoration starting from when received from the clinic including information about legal requirements , ethical demands ,risk assessment ,cross infection and operating procedures to follow and quality assurance procedures . Research information about different die manufacturing systems and different types of articulation. Self reflection and critical analysis of these products being manufactured. Accepting cases from the clinic requiring fixed metallic restoration. Reasons why single fixed metallic restorations may be requested. Crown A crown would be fitted because a patient tooth has been suffering from decay and a possible fracture therefore a strong restoration material such as a metal will give the margins an adequate fit and seal on a cap and create a good stabile continuing structure avoiding future fractures or decay. Porcelain crown is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and is a very good biomaterial. Inlay/ onlay A gold inlay would be suggested for a patient where the structure of the tooth is not a able to remain solid and do its primarily function to chew food therefore the structure still there can be used and a inlay can fit to the confines of the cusps on the tooth. Preserving any amounts of tooth will give a good overall strength to the tooth preventing further damage to the tooth. ...read more.

Conclusion

I made two different types of cast model one using the tray system and one using the pindex system. I struggles a lot with the tray system the fault s I found were after pouring the die stone and allowing to set the cast impression was very hard to take out of the tray after repeatedly taping for long time it eventually did come out of the tray and I did apply some separation spray to the tray beforehand , When I had to saw the model into segments I found that after I had sawed the model did not fit correctly into the tray even after cleaning the tray and model free from dust collected from sawing. I had to use the hand tool and grind away some of the jagged edges left after sawing to enable the model to fit back into the tray which then left a little bit of instability with the model having more movement than it should have. It is possible that I had lots of fault with this due to my inability in sawing straight. I didn?t have any problem with the pindex system I found it a very easy process to follow and my model looked very presentable and was in very good working order. The segments that were sawed fitted back into the model accurately and didn?t need any other kind of trimming or cleaning to make it fit on and off the model easily. ...read more.

    There has also been some growth in demand for cosmetic dentistry (such as tooth whitening) and this forms a larger part of the work of some dental chains than general dentistry. Such chains may not therefore be in direct competition with other dentists in the same locality.
