Overview

 


Soft matrices are available in three levels of retention. They have proven their reliability for 15 years to provide safety and ensure a high comfort of wear for the patient.
The VS-3 offers its standard Patrix which requires the use of a lingual arm or an SV Patrix which is the perfect option for esthetic design, eliminating the need for a lingual arm.
3 levels of retention
Use with or without lingual arm (SV)
Females easily replaceable chair side

Interlock

Parallel and 2� Interlock - made of special wax with a high melting point.

Fast and secure attaching of the Interlocks.
No damage of the die with the drilling of the Interlocks.
Defined wall strength of only 0.4 mm.

 VS-3 Instructions

The VS3 Patrix is waxed onto the copings. If the Short Patrix is used, the SV paralleling mandrel should be used. A lingual rest & arm is recommended.
 
The patrix can be reduced by about a third in height. After casting and fitting, polish the attachment lightly.
 
The model is duplicated with the duplicating matrix. The undercuts are blocked out and the case is duplicated.
 
After the refractory model of the case is created, the wax matrix housing is slipped over the refractory matrix.
 
The chrome cobalt framework is waxed over the refractory model onto the wax matrix housing. It is recommended to have a lingual arm.
 
The framework is then cast and fitted. A light deplating is usually required. Acrylic is added as usual.

 VS-3 Castable Housing Instructions

The VS-3 Patrix is cast onto the copings using techniques described by the VS-3 instructions above.
 
The yellow matrix is placed on the patrix and the VS-3 Matrix Housing is slipped over.
 
Retention beads or crystals are placed on the cylindrical part of the housing and the lingual arm is fabricated using bredent Pi-Ku-Plast resin.
 
The housing is removed from the model and the matrix is removed from the housing. The housing is then cast; ideally in the same metal as the copings.
 
After casting, the housing is finished and fitted on the model. The Pi-Ku-Plast resin creates a precise replication of the lingual arm.
 
The VS-3 Duplicating Matrix Housing is placed over the housing, all undercuts are blocked out and the case is prepared for duplicating.
 
After the refractory model is created, the wax housing is slipped over the refractory duplicating matrix.
 
The chrome cobalt framework is waxed onto the matrix housing. Bredent retention beads or cyrstals can be used to create a more retentive surface.
 
Vaseline is brushed onto the model as a separating agent to keep the bonding agent from adhering to the model.
 
After the overcasting is fitted, DTK Adhesive is placed into the wax housing (as seen above) and onto the retention tail of the matrix housing.
 
The partial framework is pressed onto the model firmly. Excess adhesive should be cleaned off the model and frame.
 
This shows the final product. Since both metals are of the same type where the partial is removed & inserted, the case is optimally biocompatible.

 VS-3 SV Instructions

The VS3 SV Patrix is waxed onto the copings using SV paralleling mandrel. A lingual arm is not needed.
 
The patrix can be reduced by about a third in height. After casting and fitting, polish the attachment lightly.
 
The model is duplicated with the duplicating matrix. The undercuts are blocked out and the case is duplicated.
 
After the refractory model of the case is created, the wax matrix housing is slipped over the refractory matrix.
 
The chrome cobalt framework is waxed over the refractory model onto the wax matrix housing.
 
The framework is then cast, deplated and fitted. The matrix is inserted using the insertion pin.

 Interlock Instructions

The insertion path is measured and the coping is made in wax or resin.

 

Fast and clean placement of the Interlocks and attachment guarantees quick fabrication.

 

The Interlock is finished with the groove drill #F53 82H 10. The attachment is treated as usual.

 

The correct Interlock is the guarantee for a secure and long lived removable prosthesis.
