Course Description

This course is designed for technicians who would like to learn how to fabricate an implant overdenture superstructure, also known as an overcasting. Traditionally, these types of castings are done by laboratories that specialize in implants, attachments, and/or removable partial denture frames. Due to an overwhelming amount of inquiries on this type of work from our customers, Bredent USA would like to present simple techniques on how to fabricate overcastings. Laboratories of all sizes and specialties can benefit from fabricating this precision work without investing in costly equipment irrelevant to their specialty. This is an excellent way to eliminate the stress that often accompanies subletting this type of work to other laboratories. There are two simple techniques for fabricating a precision overcast: one is the lift-off version, which is applied with our pikuplast pattern resin directly onto the relieved implant bar with all attachment components on the master model. Two is the refractory method, in which the relieved implant bar with all attachment components in place is duplicated using a quality silicone duplicating material. Once the mold has set, any popular investment can be poured in to make the refractory model. After the refractory model has set and completely dried, wax is applied over the refractory version of the relieved implant bar and any of its attachment components. Any of these two techniques can be easily done by a laboratory that casts regularly.

Each participant will obtain a course booklet, accreditation from the National Board for Certification, (6 hours per day, and a course certificate.
