Tips To Avoid Delays
- Full capture of last molars and 7-10 mm of tissue distal of the last molars
- Capture 5 mm of tissue above/below the gingiva
- Very minimal drag or pull
- Minimal voids
- No tray burn through
- Clean occlusion
- Check for protrusion. 60-70% is the ideal protrusion for most devices
- Check for deviation as the patient protrudes. If the patient has a natural deviation from their natural midline in their protrusive bite, please mark on the order form. Sample: “Deviation 2mm to the right”
- 3-4 mm of vertical opening in the bite
- Mark on order form if we can alter the vertical, if necessary
Order form fully completed:
- Dr/Patient name clear
- All desired options marked
- Clear design requests
- Due date matches turnaround time plus shipping time
- If ordering a Panthera D-SAD, please submit a D-SAD Order Form.
