Predictable Fixed and Removable Prosthodontic Impressions

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

Great impressions are necessary to create maximum effectiveness in fixed and removable restorations, and you can make them!  However, our lab colleagues tell us that excellent impressions are a rarity.  This DVD includes several methods to make perfect impressions for crowns and fixed prostheses almost every time. Removable partial dentures can be excellent restorations if the impressions are highly accurate with chewing pressure on the edentulous areas simulating actual use. The simple impression technique demonstrated shows how to accomplish just that!  Also, you can make fast, accurate, easy impressions for complete dentures when using the step-by-step technique demonstrated in this video. Many of the procedures in the techniques shown in this presentation can be delegated to competent staff.  This video will definitely enhance your fixed, removable partial, and complete denture impressions using the best materials and techniques available!
