Abstract

  Adequate tooth reduction is a prerequisite for function, esthetics, and longevity for any fixed dental prosthesis. Insufficient or over tooth reduction may compromise the prosthesis in all aforementioned objectives. A tooth reduction guide may be useful for evaluating the sufficient tooth reduction to receive crown and bridges. This article describes a simple and cost effective technique for an accurate evaluation of tooth reduction for fixed restorations by using alginate matrix in conjunction with silicone putty index template and sticky wax.

Keywords: Tooth Reduction Guide; Alginate Matrix; Silicone Putty Index Template
