Step 1 - Patient Details, Assessment of the bite registration, Articulation
Step 2 - Transferring the patient information from the bite registration
This will ensure every aspect of the bite registration is transferred, the frontal plane, occulsal plane, aesthetical features with the smile features are scribed above the cast for cross checking.
Step 3- Setting up Dentures, Tooth positioning & Dentogenics
Step 4 - Waxing up, contouring
When i set up, i do not do it quickly, i do it productively, accurately, precisely and consistently. I make sure all of the information is utilised, the patient information, anatomical features, peripheral areas, aesthetical parameters, smile features, orientation, OVD and all of the teeth are set up accordingly with the correct axis’s per tooth .
I do however, get this comment from time to time "if i had the time to do that, then i could do exactly the same" they are right and wrong , any one can do that but ill be honest i do not have the luxury of spending a huge amount of time per job as i would like (See image below, feel sorry for the technician who has the wax them up.... for the morning).
(Timing Record for the above job Set up: 12 mins upper, 8 mins lower, Wax up Privately: 21 mins )
