Frequently Asked Questions about Dandy’s Crown & Bridge products
A digital wax-up is a digital 3D rendering of the restoration design layered on top of the intraoral scan. A digital wax-up shows the contours, shape, length of restorations along with a view of the margins designed on the case. Digital wax-ups can be rotated on-screen so you can see every aspect of the restoration before it’s fabricated.
We always recommend full arch scans to capture as much data about the patient’s occlusion or bite on the scan. Full arch scans also make it easy to simultaneously order a night guard for the patient.
Yes, we do!
A Maryland bridge is a bridge without any preps – consisting instead of 1 or 2 wings that are bonded to abutments and a pontic in between. It is not typically a non-recommended option for long term restorations.
A Cantilever bridge is a bridge where a pontic is not attached to 2 abutments – so one side of the bridge ends in the pontic. These are typically used in anterior restorations since the lack of an ending abutment limits the strength of the bridge.
To enjoy the awesome benefits of digital dentistry, you will find retraction useful to ensure a clean line of sight to margins.
The final impression scan relies solely on the visibility of that crown prep’s margin, clear of any overlying gum tissue or blood. Neither the scanner, nor the design team, can see through any tissue obstructing their view of the margin. This obstruction increases the likelihood of poor margin fit as the design team can’t see the full anatomy and dimensions of that margin.If you have concerns about packing 2 cords, start with 1 cord, and then, only add a second cord as needed. The key is to provide a clear scan of the margin, and ultimately, you’ll find that double cord retraction will absolutely yield the best results in most cases.
