On October 17th-18th, 2014, Ruth Iverson (Operations Manager) and Brian Nagle (CAD CAM Specialist) traveled to Boston MA to take part in CAP's Fall Izir Training course. While there, they learned complete clinical and laboratory protocol for predictable case planning of Izir Bridge fabrication. Training included:
* CAD designing the full arch using 3Shape Dental Designer software
* Finishing of the green state zirconia
* Multi shading green state zirconia
* Sintering large bridges and gum porcelain applications
They were also able to discuss the 2-connect abutment system, used in the fabrication of Izir bridges. They met a lot of great people during their training, and were able to connect with other dental technicians to discuss what they are seeing in other labs across the country. Upon completion of their training, they were treated to dinner overlooking the Boston Harbor.
So what exactly is an Izir Bridge?
Izir crowns and bridges are implant supported screw retained restorations that are milled from a zirconia disc. Izir incorporates a combination of state of the art CAD/CAM materials and certified talented Izir dental technicians. Renstrom Dental Studio is proud to say they are now an Izir Certified Dental Laboratory.
