What can we learn from mounted models

Published by c5import

  • Hand mounting doesn’t show what happens in all parts of occlusion
  • Mount in centric relation
  • Just because you mount in CR doesn’t mean that is where you will restore, but it will allow you to see all occlusal contacts
  • Only mount when occlusion is pathologic/ failing (wear, TMD), or significant amount of restorative dentistry, or if wax up is needed.
  • Mounting models shows what we can expect with different occlusal patterns
  • Can create a template for equilibration, tooth preparation, temporization
  • Helping to decide what is the best modality for treatment. Should orthodontics be involved? Does that patient need orthognathic surgery?
  • Replicate functional movements of the patient
  • Transfer esthetic information that can be useful for diagnosis and treatment

    Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

    Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

    Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

    I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

    Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

    The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
