Description:
In this workshop, participants will learn the various types of appliances that are available to fabricate in-house. The difference between making appliances by vacuum and thermo-pressure will be demonstrated. The technique for pressure thermoforming, which provides the best combination of comfort, fit and compliance, will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to fabricate and finish various appliances, such as bruxism splints, model duplication, orthodontic retainers, bleaching trays and other appliances. Attendance is limited to 25.

Partial Sponsor: Dentsply Sirona

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • differentiate between vacuum and pressure fabrication of thermoformed appliances such as splints, stents and retainers.
  • see what is available in vacuum machines as compared to pressure machines — their costs and differences in performance.
  • have hands-on experience with pressure machines so an educated decision can be made on possible future purchases.
