Study Notes

Dental Cast and Die Materials and Techniques

  • Requirements for dental casts include exact reproduction of surfaces, precise articulation, accurate duplication without bubbles or voids, and discernible unprepared tooth structure.
  • Gypsum is an inexpensive die material available in five forms, with types IV and V producing acceptable surface details for fixed prosthodontics.
  • Resin die materials offer greater abrasion resistance than gypsum, but are more expensive and may experience minor shrinkage during polymerization.
  • Flexible die materials are similar to heavy bodied silicone or polyether impression materials and are used for interim restorations, indirect composite resin inlays, and onlays.
  • Laboratory steps for making dies involve vacuum mixing, trimming, and creating interocclusal records for maximum intercuspation and centric relation.
  • Canine guidance and group function are important in occlusal adjustment, with conformative occlusion and reorganized occlusion being key concepts in restoration.
  • Elastomeric materials, such as polyvinyl siloxane (PVS), are used for bite registration, with hard baseplate wax and acrylic resin being essential for stability in big cases.
  • After mounting the maxillary and mandibular casts, a virtual definitive cast-and-die system can be used for digital design, scanning, and milling, allowing for same-day implant restorations.
