Taking a edentulous bite

Use  the putty bite technique illustrated in the video to capture vertical and alignment.

  • In place of the verticorder use the ‘Hmmm’ technique to establish VDO
  • Place dots on the chin and nose to  capture initial measurement,
  • Using millimeter ruler, mark 7mm up from dot on nose to establish freeway space.
  • Place roll of putty onto patient’s mandible and guide them into closure to initial measurement  from dot on chin to second dot on nose.
  • When putty is set, mark midline and lip line on bite with Sharpie.
