Quick buttons in dental technology

Quick probes (according to Kröplin) and calipers (according to Iwatson) are used in dental technology to measure the wall thickness of crowns or bridges . This is used to check whether minimum thicknesses have been adhered to or by what material thickness a crown can be ground to adjust the occlusion . They usually have a measuring range of 0 - 10 mm and a reading scale in a division of 0.01 mm. The wall thickness measurement can be carried out on the wax model or on the crown already cast from metal (gold).
