Perfecting bridge design toward finals - 4.2 Seating way off, or abutments modified, and requires new abutment scan
If bridges are having major problems seating, or if there have been modifications to the abutments, then a new abutment scan is required. Whenever a new abutment scan is taken we also need a new bridge scan to establish the bite.
1. You will need to get accurate and clean abutment scans.
2. You will need to get bridge scans and photos after making adjustments to the bridges, so we can see the ideal VDO and align the abutment scans to the correct bite. The bridge scans should include both arches and a bite scan.
Both scans should include as much gingival information as possible, including the palate and other gingival markers that can be used to align the scans. This is especially important on the mandibular arch scan as natural gingival markers are harder to find.
The 7 required pictures of the bridges that will help us verify that the digital bite is accurate are detailed in the following link:
