VITA North America and Nobel Biocare recently teamed up to offer a comprehensive two-day, hands-on training course on fixed implant dentures in VITA North America’s new state-of-the-art facility. Co-taught by well-known dental technician, Dennis Urban, CDT, and Nobel Biocare’s Joe Perillo, the training course highlighted fixed implant dentures, focusing on the cross-department communication and fusion between the implants and denture.
Participants learned about the clinical aspects of impression taking, record base and occlusal rims and the expectation that a technician should have from the clinical office prior to bar fabrication. The hands-on portion of the program introduced each participant to an understanding of the bar to ridge relationship and how to properly set denture teeth. Each attendee had an opportunity to set up an edentulous hybrid case. In addition to the two-day training, participants took a tour of the nearby Nobel Biocare manufacturing facility.
