Getting the Patient Records
The records for miniComfort® are very traditional with a slight variation on the lower. Because the lower appliance is retained by saliva suction, the impression must capture the labial and lingual vestibules down to the root eminences. The maxillary arch can be traditional crown and bridge impressions or casts. We do not articulate these cases, therefore there the casts may be untrimmed when returned.
The laboratory record is the printed model duplicate. We fabricate a printed model for all cases to keep the appliance clear as glass during processing. If the patient presents with a Class I or II or another challenging bite, please send a bite registration. And YES, digital impressions are welcome. We do have a small fee for the models, but digital is always welcome with ROE.
