Through the years, I have found a method of questioning to determine if a patient will be challenging.  This video will review the questions to be asked when setting up a patient for success in the relationship with the office.  This becomes particularly important for comprehensive dental care.

At last, I will be posting videos over the next few months on my comprehensive workflow using the digital platform (Primescan) for each step of the journey.  This video is an overview of what is to come.  You will receive new video notices when videos are posted.  All the best in this journey.

Occlusal Offset will impact material thickness milled and occlusal calibration.  This video will discuss how to arrive at an Occlusal Offset that is properly calibrated for your CEREC system and assure proper occlusal material thickness and occlusal contact firmness. Though this video is illustrated in CEREC Software version 4.65, the principles are the same for the current 5... version software.

The Primescan is reliable for scanning large restorative cases.  This video will demonstrate the advantages of using a segmental prep and scan strategy for scanning larger restorative cases.  This technique will also work well for Omnicam users.

The ceramic milled and finished restorations just dropped in!   I have noticed better contact precision when designing multiple side-by-side restorations with Primescan.  We did have one hiccup with this case.  The centrals needed a brighter shade.  This video will share how the two e.max cental restorations where cemented temporarily and rescanned, used for BioCopy design, and then milled for a brighter shade.  Shade issues happen occasionally when working with thin ceramics, this is my workaround method for cases like this!

Anterior BioJaw is a software feature where the user can choose from templates and design a virtual smile setup. The BioCopy catalog is used as a virtual position guide for tooth size, position, and tip.  The value of BioJaw is the resulting cleaner virtual design than with BioCopy design.  This video will journey through the software design workflow for multiple anterior virtual designs using BioJaw.

For the last 10 years, my favored software flow for anterior multiple tooth design has been BioCopy.  This anterior case review will introduce my current Biocopy/Biojaw modified anterior workflow for multiple teeth.  This is the first video in a series of three videos.

This video will highlight my anterior ceramic shaping workflow for multiple anterior restorations, particularly when crossing the midline.  However, anterior restorative success is mostly about understanding the patient's treatment expectations and then working through the biomechanical diagnosis and preplanning with either a traditional or digital wax-up.  

The predetermined wax-up prototype is used for preparation guidelines and reduction, transitional restorations when using a two appointment protocol, and a digital BioCopy scan for digital design guidance.  When these preliminary and preparatory guidelines are delivered to the

Setting up the CEREC software for a seamless smooth design flow is defined by two preparation factors.  This video will convey my take on prepping for success and is the core of my CEREC clinical success.

Primescan provides the dream scanning situation for inlays and onlays.  The best we have had yet in the years of CEREC upgrade scanning devices.  There is a caveat about which version of the CEREC software can best handle the two-piece implant restoration in the premolar or anterior zone of the mouth.  In the opinion of Dr. Klim, it is the 4.52 software which means we still need the Omnicam. This case review video will illustrate the planning and implementation to restoring an implant restoration on a non-ideal placed implant and creating the illusion of a smaller mesial-distal tooth using the combo of the Primescn and Omnicam.  To
