Vident holds two denture courses
Participants recently traveled to Vancouver and Vident's home office in Brea, Calif. to attend hands-on denture courses taught by Dennis Purinton, CDT. Attendees learned to demonstrate proper articulation techniques focusing on mandibular denture stability and lingualized occlusion. Using available information, such as landmarks of the mouth, facial shape and gender, participants completed one denture set up with VITA Physiodens Anterior and Lingoform upper and lower posterior teeth. Students were provided with a Protar Articulator from Kavo, base plate wax and an APT portable burner to use during the course. Finishing techniques using GC’s Gradia Gum tissue characterization materials and VITA VMLC tooth characterization materials were also discussed and demonstrated.
Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Vita Classical Shade Guide, Vita 3D-Master Shade System, VITA Easyshade and quality VITA restorative materials.
