Welcome to season 1, episode 2 of the Clinical Hacks Podcast!

In this riveting episode, each of the Hacks discusses their tissue retraction methods for crown and bridge impressions/scans.

Highlights today include:

  • There are a lot of different ways to retract tissue, how do we do it if we're impressing?   How about scanning?
  • Medicaments?  How many chemicals can Zach put in the mouth simultaneously just to dry things up?
  • Compression caps, an inexpensive way to get some pressure hemostasis.
