This is a surgical guide for immediate placement done completely from an intra oral scan.
We created a surgical guide, printed model, temporary crown, and a seating matrix to assist the seating of the crown.
Our team enjoys working hand in hand with each doctor during the planning stages of the surgical guide in order to ensure everything goes like clockwork during implant placement.
This is just one of the many things we are proud to offer our dentists. Placing implants can be challenging at times for the dentist and stressful for the patient.
We take great pride and satisfaction knowing we did our part to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
This month's Employee Spotlight is Elaine Frye, our Mounting Specialist. She makes sure every case is articulated in proper occlusion before it enters production.
This amazing lady is also a cancer survivor! Earlier this year, while going through her chemo treatments, she still came to work with a positive attitude and gave 100% every day!
She is truly an inspiration to those of us who work with her. Congratulations Miss Elaine, and thank you for all that you do!
Learning the Trade - Part 2
I am now 6 months into my journey at Gator Ceramics! The biggest takeaway from my experience so far, is that there is no 'black and white' when designing teeth. There are preferences, judgement calls and changes that are made on a case by case basis. What works for one case may never be used for another case. There are very few 'rules' that come into play when considering the esthetics of the designs. I feel like this is what contributes to the patient receiving a personalized product each and every time.
I'm starting to learn what situations call for these special adjustments. This all ties into my first article, when I realized that each tooth was a special work of art. Once I learned to let go of the 'rules' and one-size-fits-all mentality, I was able to start understanding how this works. There is still much to discover and I am sure there will be more responsibilities, frustrations and lessons along the way. It's all part of me learning how to help deliver quality products and I'm glad I have some of the best teachers in the field to help me along the way!
