The work of a dental technician includes:
Restoring natural teeth ( crowns, inlay / onlay, veneer)
Replacing teeth ( bridges, partial and complete dentures, dental implant prosthesis )
Moving, retaining and protecting teeth.
Dental technicians receive a model (replica of the patient’s mouth) or a dental impression from the dentist. The impression is poured and a model is created for the technician to wok upon. The model is prepared and the process of fabrication of the dental prosthesis begins. The process of fabrication of Fixed Partial Denture(FPD), Removable Partial Denture (RPD) and Complete Denture (CD) differ. As per the doctor’s instruction, a dental technician manufactures the product.
