GY YATROS, DMD TAKING A DIGITAL 3D BITE Today I’m going to talk about taking a digital 3D bite using the Carestream 3600 Scanner. Some providers are proponents of using bite registration material and cutting it away to make the bite. However, an easier approach is to use a George Gauge to hold the patient in the protrusive bite that you’ve predetermined, and marry the two images together using the scanner. The scanner is not only impressive, but patients love using it rather than having to take impressions. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to take a digital 3D bite!
