A cast metal partial denture involves a metal framework that attaches by way of clasps connected to crowns. The metal frame is not visible (the gum-colored acrylic plastic covers it), but when you smile, the clasps may be visible. Due to the strength of the metal, it can be maintained in a high degree of stability, repairs will be minimal, making it an ideal long-term solution for patients.
Metal Frame Steps Between Doctors and Art Dental Lab
- Clinician takes full arch upper and lower impressions and full arch bite registration.
- Art Dental Lab receives the case and pour the model accordingly. Lab technicians then fabricate metal frame with bite block. This step takes approximately 2.5 weeks due to casting metal frame. After metal frame with bite block is made, the case is sent to clinician for a metal frame with bite block try-in.
- Clinician verifies the accuracy of the metal frame and the bite block. Once the try-in goes smooth, clinician sends the case back to Art Dental Lab for a metal frame setup.
- Art Dental Lab receives the case and start working on metal frame setup. Once frame setup is ready, our technician will send this case for a metal frame setup try-in.
- Clinician receives the case and inform the patient to come-in for a metal frame setup. Once the try-in goes well, clinician sends the case back to Art Dental Lab for a finish.
- Art Dental Lab receives the case and proceed to metal frame finish. Once everything is done, the case is sent back to clinician and delivers the case.
- If the patient approves the overall quality of the denture, the patient goes home with mouth-full of teeth :)
