BEING IMPRESSED: TRANSFER INFORMATION PREDICTABLY (TIP)
Predictability is a major requirement for the restoration of esthetics. Through the concept of TIPs (Transfer Information Predictably), predictability becomes a must for any restorative procedure. Accurate impressions are the outcome of tissue handling, materials selection and preferred technique. So the path to desirable esthetics, effortless function and patient satisfaction is paved with TIPs.
OBJECTIVES: At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Digital vs Analog: Understand the different modalities to transfer information to the laboratory
Soft tissue management: Learn the ideal techniques for predictable tissue retraction
Impression Material selection: Learn to compare and contrast various impression materials
