Triple Tray with Flexible Joint

U.S. Patent No: 6,913,461 B2

An apparatus and method to avoid dental impression material distortion comprised of dental impression triple tray with a flexible hinge rendered inflexible by a light-cured compound. The curing light is conveyed by an optical fiber assembly. Accurate simultaneous impressions of upper and lower impressions and bite registration, with the mouth completely closed and the jaw accurately positioned in centric closure are insured. Spring back of the impression tray frame caused by bite pressure against points on the frame are minimized by allowing the hinge element to initially flex when first placed in the mouth. While the impression polymer is curing, a light of the proper frequency range is delivered via the optical fiber to the light-cured compound in the hinge area to render the hinge inflexible.

Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
