This session will look at general aspects of cast analysis and basic principles of the surveying of dental casts derived from primary impressions (it is prudent to use primary casts in case tooth preparation is required prior to definitive impressions being recorded). The word impressions is deliberately used as both arches should be recorded and accompanied with an appropriate interocclusal record.
