Many (most) times, patients just dont want to surrender teeth regardless of how compromised they are. In cases where some dentition is still viable and a partial denture is prescribed and I see root exposure or other visual indications, I can recommend a processed acrylic tooth colored window with frame mesh to accomodate future tooth loss. I use tooth colored resin to prevent acrylic from being too obvious. It makes additions a snap without welding.
How many off the street digital designers can bring these kinds of options to the table?
This is why I offer valuable consulting services to laboratories who lack the knowledge base provided by over 30 years’ experience and that a formal education background in dental technology can provide.
My dentist clients also appreciate my position as a technical entity that actually analyses cases that arrive at the door and provides continuous input on options.
