Modeling Course

Annual modeling course

The annual dental anatomy and modeling course with the AFG technique is a complete program to learn definitively and once and for all the natural human dental shape, in its natural morpho-functional aspects.

The course is suitable for dentists and technicians, beginners and experts. It is not necessary to have any knowledge because the course starts from the simplest and at the same time profound basics of human anatomy to immediately lead the student to results of the highest level.

AFG is an innovative school of thought that provides a didactics and a teaching method based on objective geometries and numbers, which are capable in a very short time of putting the student in a position to create with his hands (brush, spatula or mouse) the tooth that his mind dreams of making, without the obstacles due to the need to have a particular flair. The course takes place in 6 meetings and 13 days in total, moving from wax to ceramics, up to composites. AFG is a system for both analog and digital.

In summary: AFG is a system of design, modeling and communication of dental anatomy that intervenes from the patient’s first visit, passes through the construction of the tooth itself and influences everything from the estimate to word of mouth.

Annual AFG course program

  • 13 day course (6 phases):
  • AFG modeling of posterior and anterior (wax – ceramic or composite)
  • Design, model and communicate dental anatomy.
  • History of dental modeling, the mistakes of the past.
  • Objective numerical and geometric criteria to identify the invisible (design) foundations of the form
  • AFG modeling criteria comparable to tailoring, painting, sculptural and archaeological work
  • Embryological elements on the development of teeth
  • The repetitiveness that characterizes the human tooth.
  • The AFG numeric codes
  • Point-line-triangle and alternation of curves for the construction of the tooth shape in 4 phases
  • Triangulation of the basic shape of the tooth
  • Function already included in the shape
  • Construction of grids for identifying transition lines.
  • Tooth torsion and its functional significance
  • Numerical criteria to identify the alternation between concavity and convexity
  • The invisible underlay as a guide for modeling and finishing tools
  • AFG finishing techniques with direct vision and rational selection of cutters
  • Real tooth contacts
  • Additive and subtractive contacts with the SPOC system
  • Revolution of the medical-technician-patient communication system.AFG, implications and influence in the economy and corporate marketing of the practice and laboratory.
  • Practical session: Wax up – 6 posterior elements and 3 anterior elements. Ceramic or composites: 3 posterior elements and 3 anterior elements.
