A BULLETIN DEALING WITH ISSUES FOR DENTAL
Advice Equal Solutions
Recently one of our Quebec dental lab customers called to place an
order for VKS attachment refills. He mentioned that there were some
problems with the combination cases. The removable cast partial without
the VKS attachments were not seating properly and were tight. Our
technical support staff asked the customer about their lab procedure.
We learned that the lab would fabricate the crowns with the male
attachment and then send it to the dental office where the dentist
would pick up the crown in a rubber base impression. Back at the lab
the models and the removable cast partial were then processed.
Somewhere during the process, accuracy was lost and thus seating
problems occurred. Our suggestion was to use a VKS metal analogue. The
crowns are first cemented and then a rubber based impression taken. At
the lab the analogues are placed into the impression and the model
poured. You now have a model with VKS metal males that will not move
during cast partial production Our customer was convinced that we had a
solution for his problem and promptly purchased a package of analogues
for his lab. For technical assistance regarding the Bredent

OC Update - Technical Alert
We have just found out about a potential problem that you should inform
your dentist about. If your dentists are using the VKS attachments from
Bredent, inform them not to have the patient bite their dentures into
place. This causes premature wearing of the male. Passive insertion
using the finger's pressure is recommended.
