his video is about the software workflow for the CAD/CAM orthotic/splint fabrication. It is a reasonably easy workflow in the software. The most important aspect of the software process is establishing the desired vertical and jaw position in the mouth and not opening on a hinge articulator. Watch the other videos in this sequence to understand the removable workflow from start to finish.

When do we choose between an onlay vs. a crown?  This video will review my take on the topic.  I have been placing various forms of ceramic onlays for over 30 years and been able to track their endurance. And this treatment application has achieved excellent results, even before e.max.  I will break down the five condition factors to consider when choosing an onlay vs. a crown and then provide a case review and onlay software workflow.

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.

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.

What is the material of choice in our CAD/CAM theater when we have minimal clearance in a second molar zone?  Historically, the short clinical tooth has been the most challenging to restore in my 30 plus career.  We now have robust materials and precise milling options to deal with this clinical dilemma.
