altered cast technique2
Altered Cast Technique
  • Corrected Cast
  • Modified Cast
  • Destroyed Cast
altered cast impressions
Altered Cast Impressions
  • Impression of soft tissue if not captured in framework impression
  • Improve adaptation of the denture base to the ridge to minimize movement during function
  • Equalize stress between ridge and abutments
  • Improve contours of peripheries
when needed
When Needed
  • Mandibular distal extensions (Class I & II)
  • Extensive edentulous spans
  • Any case where periphery is distorted & needs correction
  • Less necessary in maxilla due to major connector contact with palate
impression technique
Impression Technique
  • Framework must fit intraorally
  • Add tray to framework
    • 1 mm wax relief
    • Heat and fully seat framework into wax
check seating on cast and in mouth
Check Seating on Cast and in Mouth
  • After tray added
    • Rests must be fully seated
    • Tissue stop contacts cast
    • No resistance as framework seated
check peripheries
Check Peripheries
  • 2-3 mm short of vestibular
  • No displacement when:
    • Pull on cheeks, lips
    • Patient activates tongue
border mold
Border Mold
  • Same as a denture
altered cast impression
Altered Cast Impression
  • Remove wax spacer
  • Coat tray with adhesive
altered cast impression11
Altered Cast Impression
  • Polyvinyl siloxane
  • Carefully load tray-no material under rests, guideplanes, major connector
  • Seat with pressure ONLYover rests
no pressure over tray
No Pressure Over Tray
  • Will cause tissue compression
remove inspect impression
Remove & Inspect Impression
  • Fully seated
  • No material under rests or minor connectors
send to laboratory
Send to Laboratory
  • Lab Steps
    • Section cast
    • Place retentive grooves in cast
    • Ensure no contact between impression material & cast
    • Sticky wax framework in place
lab steps
Lab Steps
  • Box impression
  • Seal retainer, major & minor connector borders
  • Pour new ridge areas in different color stone
potential problems with the altered cast technique
Potential Problems with the Altered Cast Technique
  • Framework not seated either during impression (material under rest, gp) or when being poured will result in an RPD that won’t fit properly on teeth/tissues
  • Stone leaking over teethduring pouring makes articulation impossible

Next Step
  • Lab adds record base and occlusion rim to framework for jaw relation records
