Measuring the space required for symmetrical prosthetic restorations in the esthetic zone for an orthodontic patient: A dental technique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article describes a technique for measuring the length of the edentulous space to be restored and transferring the same size of the dentate space on the contralateral side to plan for symmetrical definitive restorations for the restorative dentist and orthodontist. The technique involves incorporating 2 archwire locks with hooks on a stainless steel wire that can be easily moved and adjusted to assess the curved space being measured.
