The very concept - orthopedics is associated with the musculoskeletal area. In dentistry, an orthopedist is mainly involved in prosthetics. Not infrequently, a specialist has the skills of a surgeon and orthodontist. This is due to the close work of these areas.
In modern dentistry, there is more than one method of prosthetics. Depending on the method, the manufacturing process is different, but the course of action is one.
Workflow of an orthopedic dentist:
Casting and preparation of the prosthesis (such a process is carried out both manually and automatically, depending on the method of prosthetics)
Tooth processing for installation design also depends on the methods
An orthopedic dentist needs to know which method is appropriate for the patient. He is also required to properly familiarize himself with the operating rules, because the life of the prosthesis depends on this.
