What does the world cost?

A Happy couple "There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey.
It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot... It can't be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."
John Ruskin - English social reformer (1819 - 1900)

Diamonds are a boy’s best friend

Diamonds are a boy’s best friend

fig 7: Let’s rock Master dental technician Ulrich Heker describes the unusual process of adding a diamond insert into a top front tooth crown.

The proposal

When I received a query from a longstanding dentist client for an upper front tooth crown, the first thought was, no problem! There was, however, a twist. Could we incorporate a diamond, which the patient had inherited from his mother, as he did not wear rings? Furthermore, the patient had a very clear idea of the final appearance of the crown and had even made a design to show exactly where the stone should sit on the crown. I could not refuse the challenge!

The brief

To make a root post and core with a crown on 12 – including a gemstone of unknown form (see below) and following the patient’s specifications – so far, so good! This was how the case was presented by Martin Sulo’s dental practice in Norwich: A 70-year-old male patient referred himself to our practice for the restoration of a

Telescopes – Precision dental 2

Fig. 3 Copies Telescope prosthesis or double crowns are a proven option for the prosthetic treatment of dramatically reduced dentition. However, the production of such a prosthesis places higher demands on the dental practitioner and the technical laboratory involved.
A telescopic crown always comprises two parts:
  • 1. The primary crown, or coping, which is permanently fixed in the mouth to anchor teeth, and is preferably made from a suitable gold alloy; and
  • 2. The mounted, removable telescopic crown orsecondary crown attached to the prosthesis and made of the same alloy material.

History of telescopes

Ttelescope procedure was first described in 1886 by R Walter Starr and, later, by Goslee and Peeso. Telescope or double crowns thus have their origins in America and not Germany, as the common term ‘German Crown’ might suggest. In Germany, Häupl was one of the pioneers (1929 onwards), as were his pupils Böttger and Rehm, who laid the foundations for the telescope method that remains almost unchanged to

Or “When black OR white are not the only solutions”

As a dentist, you are often faced with situations where black or white, prosthesis or implant, are not the only options. This is a case study of a telescope implant treatment (Kennedy Class 1) in the upper jaw of a female patient. Ulrich Heker (Master Dental Technician) describes the treatment of a UK patient with a completely detachable prosthesis based on telescopic implants, combining the best of both technologies to provide an optimal solution for the client, at a reasonable cost.

Case history

The patient presented a unique challenge for the dentist. The 55 year old female had worn a classical gold/gold telescope prosthesis for many years. The original elegant work had evolved over the years through repeated extensions and relining. Finally, with a base completely covering the palate, it had mutated into a full denture. The patient did

Something that dentist, dental technicians and most importantly  the patients aspire to. AuthorIn this Blog we will  discuss all the Pros and Cons of the wonderful technique of precision milling with you, the dentists, dental technicians and, last but not least you, the patients, who will have a perfect smile at the end. Hello my name is Ulrich Heker. I am the owner manager of Teeth Are Us, a German dental laboratory based in Essen, Germany close to the river Ruhr. We have been providing Germany, the UK and Ireland with high quality precision-milled dentures since 2007.  I also write numerous articles on implants, telescopes and individual attachments, my favourite topics. Precision milling is  a special aspect of dental technique which predominantly is used in Germany.

Our objective

is to fit prosthetics to your individual patients and their personality. We therefore do not limit ourselves just to precision dental technologies such as telescopes and individual attachments with or without implants. In
