Handle working casts with care

Taking care of working casts for partial dentures is essential if the final denture is going to fit accurately. The teeth on the cast are particularly prone to damage. It is easy to inadvertently chip the teeth on the cast, when carving the wax rim, for example. This can prevent the metal and acrylic components of the partial denture fitting later.

Isolated teeth with long necks are at greatest risk of breaking off.

My dental technician identifies damage to working casts coming back from the surgery and requests a new working impression if needed. Being open to feedback from the dental technician is important.
