Custom Tray, Record Base and Wax Rim

It is only week three of the Fall semester and I am already buried in exams and projects. Woo dios mio! But I finally have some time to make an update. We've been working on custom trays, record bases and wax rims in Removable Prosthodontics. The aim is to fabricate a complete denture.

Preliminary Cast - Used to make the custom tray

Fabricate Record Base. This is done similarly to the fabrication of the custom tray except the triad material extends to the vestibule of the cast.

Setting Teeth!


I love lab work! It's nice to get away from the books sometime.

I had such a hectic week. Restorative Operative exam was on Tuesday followed by Pathology on Wednesday and Microbiology on Thursday - all this while doing amalgam and composite preps and restorations AND making custom trays, record bases and wax rims. I will have a Restorative Operative graded exercise this afternoon which will include doing and amalgam prep and restoration on #12 and 31 and composite on 29. 

I am happy this week is over - Cheers to the freakin' Weekend!!
