here are a number of ways to process a vertical dimension (VD) increase. How much to open a VD can be a perplexing decision. This video will provide a systematic method for opening the VD. I realize there a number of philosophies and methods for finding and how much to open the VD. I will share how I use the Shimbashi measurement. The template for digital scanning a bite relationship provided in this video can be used for a deprogrammer and leaf gauge application as well.

The first step in comprehensive care planning is understanding the patient. When projecting an occlusal shift with restorative treatment, one should consider occlusal wear & tear factors, neural sensitivity, and jaw skeletal balance. This video will review my patient comprehensive diagnostic overview.

Over the years of practice, I have used many oral appliances for retention, grinding issues, TMD diagnosis and relief, and setting up a clients' case for vertical dimension increase. This video is about my favored removable appliance when the treatment aim is to increase the restorative vertical dimension. This appliance is generated with the MC XL or Primemill milling. It has been one of the most streamlined appliances I have used due to the Primescan digital bite registration accuracy.

When I think back to dental school days, study models were part of the new patient records collection. The ease of Primescan imaging can take a digital study model in 3 minutes or less. The Primescan produces an excellent STL which can be used for a third party software, printing, appliances, aligners, and a digital wax-up. This video will demonstrate my process for acquiring a Primescan study model.

Now that I have had the Primescan for a few months, I have a good feel for it and find significant ease in the scanning compared to its CEREC predecessors, sharp margin viewing, and smooth flow of the software process. I am finishing my bread and butter restorative dentistry 12-15 minutes ahead of schedule on the average. This videos will review my top Primescan assets and how it can impact your clinical theater.

IPS Ivocolor is a universal stains and glaze assortment for the individualized staining and characterization of ceramic materials. The range of products has been coordinated with the layering, press and CAD ceramics from Ivoclar Vivadent and the zirconium oxides from Wieland Dental and can be used regardless of the CTE of the ceramic. Due to the optimized sinter temperature of the newly developed glass, optimum esthetic results can be achieved irrespective of the ceramic substrate.
The newly developed composition of the pastes was optimized with regard to the application behaviour and the firing results. The gel-type structure of

We may choose multiple capture catalogs in the Acquisition Phase Screen. For instance, we are able to add the opposing arch catalogs and buccal scan to BioCopy (new name for Correlation). The catalog screen options in 4.0 are impressive.
The buccal optical bite registration is the corner stone to occlusal mastery. Dr. Klim will review his approach to accomplishing predictable and repeatable buccal scan success and results.
