Chu’s Aesthetic Gauges from Hu-Friedy

  1. 1. Introducing Chu’s Aesthetic Gauges
  2. 2. Contents: <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>What are the different gauges? </li></ul><ul><li>Instruments in use </li></ul><ul><li>Features and Benefits </li></ul><ul><li>End users </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>Dental measurement and procedure-based instruments designed for aesthetic dentistry </li></ul><ul><li>Measurement based instrument helps in quick analysis and correction of tooth size discrepancies </li></ul><ul><li>Procedure based instruments facilitates clinical procedures </li></ul>
  4. 4. Dimensional discrepancies LENGTH SPACE & WIDTH
  5. 5. What are the different gauges? <ul><li>The Proportion Gauge </li></ul><ul><li>The Crown Lengthening Gauge </li></ul><ul><li>The Sounding Gauge </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>PROPORTION GAUGE </li></ul>
  7. 7. Proportion Gauge <ul><li>Measurement based instrument. </li></ul><ul><li>Helps to measure the tooth width and length. </li></ul><ul><li>Comprises of – T-bar tip (regular alignment) </li></ul><ul><li>In-line tip ( crooked/crowded alignment) </li></ul><ul><li>The instrument measurements have a predetermined ratio of about 78%. </li></ul><ul><li>The clinician will be able to diagnose any tooth size and proportion discrepancies that require correction to enhance patient aesthetics. </li></ul><ul><li>Incisal edge position must be determined before using this gauge </li></ul>
  8. 8. T-bar tip
  9. 9. T-bar tip <ul><li>The T-bar tip is designed to measure the width [horizontal arm] and length [vertical arm] of a maxillary anterior tooth simultaneously. </li></ul><ul><li>The numbers are organized on the horizontal arm from inside to the outside - 5.5mm to 10.5mm. </li></ul><ul><li>Similarly on the vertical arm from bottom to the top - 7mm to 13.5mm. </li></ul><ul><li>All measurements start from the incisal guide. </li></ul><ul><li>The most common width/length numbers for the lateral (blue band), canine (yellow band), Central (red band) are 6.5/8.5, 7.5/9.5 and 8.5/11mm respectively. </li></ul>
  10. 10. T-bar in use
  11. 11. In-line Tip
  12. 12. In-line tip <ul><li>Indicated to be used on crowded teeth where the use of T-bar tip may be difficult. </li></ul><ul><li>The tip is designed to measure the width [shorter arm] and length [longer arm] of the of the maxillary anterior teeth, independently . </li></ul><ul><li>The color bands on the shorter arm representing the width are aligned to the corresponding color bands on the long arm representing the length. </li></ul>
  13. 13. In-line in use
  14. 14. <ul><li>CROWN LENGTHENING GAUGE </li></ul>
  15. 15. Crown Lengthening Gauge <ul><li>Procedure based instrument. </li></ul><ul><li>Used for crown lengthening procedure. </li></ul><ul><li>Comprises of: </li></ul><ul><li>BLPG tip is used to achieve the proper clinical and biologic crown length during crown lengthening procedure. </li></ul><ul><li>Papilla tip is used to achieve an aesthetically ideal position of the interdental papilla during the crown lengthening procedure. </li></ul><ul><li>Incisal edge position must be determined before using this gauge </li></ul>
  16. 16. BioLogic Periogauge (BLPG) Tip
  17. 17. BioLogic Periogauge (BLPG) Tip <ul><li>The BLPG tip is designed to measure the midfacial length of the new restored clinical crown and the length of the biologic crown [bone crest to the incisal edge], simultaneously . </li></ul><ul><li>The instrument is color-coded with a preset dentogingival complex measurement of 3 mm. This helps achieve the ideal 3mm difference between the clinical and the biologic crown length. </li></ul><ul><li>The color bands on the shorter arm representing clinical crown length portion are aligned to the corresponding color bands on the longer arm representing the biologic crown length of the instrument. </li></ul><ul><li>The short arm of the BLPG tip is of the same length and measurement as the long arm of the T-bar and In-line tip. </li></ul>
  18. 18. BLPG in use Before After
  19. 19. Papilla Tip
  20. 20. Papilla Tip <ul><li>The Papilla tip is designed to measure the interdental length of the new restored clinical crown and the length of the biologic crown [bone crest to the interproximal incisal edge], simultaneously . </li></ul><ul><li>The tip is color coded with a preset length color ratio of 60% from the incisal edge to achieve an aesthetically ideal papilla position </li></ul><ul><li>The color bands on the shorter arm representing the interproximal papilla position are aligned to the corresponding color bands on the longer arm representing the interproximal biologic crown length </li></ul><ul><li>There is an interproximal incisal embrasure ‘guide’ to help position and orient the instrument during measurement. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Papilla tip in use
  22. 22. <ul><li>SOUNDING GAUGE </li></ul>
  23. 23. Sounding Gauge
  24. 24. Sounding Gauge in use <ul><li>Provides quick, simple analysis of the bone crest location </li></ul><ul><li>both mid-facially and interdentally. </li></ul><ul><li>Used in aesthetic and periodontal crown lengthening procedures to </li></ul><ul><li>determine the bone level before reflecting the flap </li></ul><ul><li>Tip curvature allows easy manipulation and access. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Reduces chances of cross-infection. 5.Completely sterilizable. Reduces chair side fatigue and stress. 4. Easy to read color bands. Saves time and money. 3. Easy – simple – fast – less expensive. Improves the level of effective communication between the two to avoid errors and obtain high quality restorations. 2. Proportion Gauge can be used as a reference guide between clinicians and lab techs. Accurate results – Eliminates/reduces errors and chair side adjustment time. 1. Provides precise measurements. Benefits Features
  26. 26. End users <ul><li>GP’s exclusively performing cosmetic procedures – Direct and Indirect aesthetic restorations </li></ul><ul><li>Lab tech – Indirect restorations (crowns, veneers) </li></ul><ul><li>Prosthodontists </li></ul><ul><li>Periodontists & Implantologists – Crown Lengthening and implant placement </li></ul><ul><li>Orthodontist – Space analysis & bracket placement </li></ul>
