Work of a Dental Mechanic

Posted on June 28, 2012 by team

Let’s see what a dental mechanic does in order we had beautiful smiles.

All-cast crown from stainless steel.

Each tooth has its number. This one is 46th. The main technological stages are:
1. Making of a plaster model.
2. Modelling of a tooth.
3. Metal casting.
4. Processing and adjustment of a crown.

Low jaw imprint

A dental mechanic turns imprints into real models. Making a split cast is the most difficult in this work.
Drilling a plastic socket with a laser.

Inserting pins, pouring the imprint with plaster and covering it with the socket.

The plaster has dried out and the imprint can be removed.

Turning of a dental arch

And cutting it into separate segments

In this particular case we cut it into 5 segments. Then the tooth demanding the crown must be turned. Excess plaster below the arrow must be removed.

They use special lacquer that serves as cement.

Assembling the model and connecting the jaws to put them into the articulator: the device imitating a human skull.

Modelling is the next stage.

      dentistry of the last century.
      nice work, but outdated materials.
      today no one wants to look like jaws from moonraker.

    Excellent techniques, a truly skilled outfit.

    Adapting to modern ceramics and the new generation of orthodontic prostheses will be a piece of cake for these “dental artists”.

    That done, the money should start rolling in, in large, leafy bales, if the price is right.

    “Dental tourism”, anyone?
