When designing teeth at the midline, it is best to create mirror mesial incisal, labial, and cervical embrasures. The midline is best managed with the vertical axis of the face. This is why I use BioCopy and preplan the case with a wax-up to simplify and provide a system for very predictable results.

Work from the midline distally (Design and Finishing Workflow). Choose the central with the largest root truck and set it to the midline using the 2D guide. Then remove the model and finish the proximal mesial of the single central

This video will convey my top 3 tips for making the CEREC process fly. And believe it or not, it has nothing to do with the software. It has to with what we deliver into the software.

As a dental clinician, I am so grateful for digital technology and excited about what the Primescan by Dentsply Sirona will provide in accuracy and ease of imaging. This video documents my very first imaging step to achieve predictable occlusion with our milled restorations and avoiding high occlusion. Register atRead more

Welcome to The Dental Show Live.  I do this webcast with Dr. Todd Ehrlich (Digital Enamel) about dental topics related to digital dentistry. The Dental Show is streamed live weekly on Facebook and uploaded to The Dental Show Live youtube channel.  

This live presentation reviews the advantages to in-office CAD/CAM (Primescan by Dentsply Sirona) when it comes to managing and controlling restorative occlusion. Dr. Klim will present his Primescan software design strategy for shimstock quality milled in-office restorations.

Part one video in BioJaw anterior design series. The way I save time in my anterior design theater is to go into the case preplanned with a wax-up which I now do in inLab, print the model and use the wax-up as a reduction guide and basis for making provisionals when needed.  Time-saving comes from being certain with preparation reduction protocols for the case and then propose and refine with BioJaw, still using a BioCopy component to guide the BioJaw placement.  One thing unique to this case review is the strategy used to block out a dark root.

    Sometimes it happens, software crash!  These are issues we occasionally need to work through, particularly with new equipment or software rollouts.  There is no exception for Primescan.  This video is about one of those incidents.  I really had to go after due diligence to save the case.  Fortunately, when I do a CEREC workflow with multiple units or that is unique, I have a habit of saving the case (Save AS) before starting the software design flow.  Having more than one file for a case can save the day!

    Even with a fully automated model screen, there are four checks I use before proposing to assure restorative fit.  This video will share my model screen hacks to save the day.  CEREC 4.61 and 5.0 software versions are the same, just different graphics interphase.  The principles of this video apply to the 4.61 software version as well.
