Case by Doyle Freano, DMD
Our precision attachment partial cases are still being fabricated in zirconia rather than metal with complete success. Use a custom tray and capture the soft tissue areas with your master impression for the preps, and most of the time we can fabricate the partial frame with set-up along with the crown & bridge work from the original master model. We are calling this our “All-on-One” technique. It eliminates the need for the pickup impression and saves hours of valuable chair time. We’ve been doing it this way for several years now with nearly 100% success rate. When the case has posterior stops, we actually go all the way to finish on the entire case. Think of all the chair time saved!
