How can I get consultation for a particular case?
There are several ways to receive consultation for your case:
1. Have your study casts or pre-up models available, along with a bite registration and patient pictures. Send those items directly to GIE (pictures may be e-mailed for convenience). If you prefer, you may use an adjustable or semi–adjustable articulator (one of the most common and easy to use articulators is the PANADENT ARTICULATOR). We can provide you a secure box to send over your own articulator if you choose to do so. Otherwise simply register the maxillary occlusal surface and we will use GIE’s articulators to mount your case.
2. We can also discuss your case via email once you provide all available intraoral and facial pictures along with pre-up study models. As soon as we receive the case, our diagnostic department will start and finish a wax-up for your case. Along with the waxed-up models you will receive a duplicate model from your original cast as well as a vacuum shell stent for preparing your own provisionals (we can also fabricate provisionals and send it to your office with your case).
