Dental Asia Nov/Dec 2018

Behind the Scenes NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 2018 DENTAL ASIA 55 Figs. 25a-b: Markings of the usable set-up ranges as an overview. Both the basic static lines and their corrections limit the static corridor. Figs. 26a-b: The result is illustrated well in the next view. You can see where the divisions are located and how wide they are. From this, the program determines the corridor for the placement of the posterior teeth in the mandible and maxilla that is statically closest to an ideal function in the next and, for the time being, last step of the model analysis. DMT Karl-Heinz Körholz worked as a department head in different laboratories and started becoming intensely involved in full denture prosthetics. In addition, he invested his entire specialist knowledge into the development of denture fabrication systems and materials (such as PremEco-Line, CeraA Color Set) cooperating closely with industrial manufacturers. Co-founder of the TiF ® Setting-up method and proprietor of Trigodent, a specialised laboratory for functional, customised full denture prosthetics. Nowadays, he also works as a course instructor, lecturer and author passing his expert knowledge gained in over 35 years on to dental technicians from all over the world. About the author: be displayed in an entire overview. This way, both the basic static lines as well as their corrections which limit the static corridors, become visible (Figs. 25a-b). In the dorsal view, the graphic result now clearly shows at which point and how wide the corridors of the respective set-up regions are. From this, the program will then determine the statically functional and ideal common setup region for placing the posterior teeth in the mandible and maxilla in the next and, for the time being, last step of the model analysis (Figs. 26a-b). In the next issue, Karl-Heinz Körholz describes the further work steps within the context of the digital workflow, from setting up the teeth to the milling processes and try-in on the patient.
