Medical: Dentistry / Dentistry
|German term or phrase: Meisterstumpf|
|This is from a text about dentistry. Thankfully the rest of the job is fairly general. BTW, does anyone know of a good dental dictionary. Now and again I translate texts for an agency which mention a few dental terms, but no sufficiently so that it would be worth shelling out lots of money. I know of the online Infodent dictionary, but that's about it really. |

I think "Meisterstumpf" is short for "Meisterstumpfmodell", which is a master die, primary die or original die, according to my Bucksch dental dictionary, ISBN No. 3-8304-5033-8, published by Hüthig Zahnmedizin, and which will set you back US$350 if you buy it from Amazon.com. :-(
"Stumpf" on its own is a "stump", so it may be a "master stump" as well. I suspect "master die" is more likely though.

|Thanks very much for your speedy answer. Unfortunately, the dictionary would be a bit too expensive for the few translations I do for dentistry. In English we also use "stump" in the same way as described by TService.|
