A good demonstration but repeat some at the last of the episode. However, it cannot affect the whole of the live demonstraton.

Eddie- Ok. I believe dentures isn't as straight forward as the case presented on the video. Many of the details were simply skipped. Or, did I just miss things? For instance, what type of occlusion did he utilize? I was assuming lingualized. What kind of teeth were selected- yes, I heard some brand name, but are they plastic, porcelain, occlusal design? I would have appreciated hearing his beliefs behind choosing these teeth. I appreciated his comments on anterior occlusion, and implants. Although I disagree with a lower bar. I think the cost breakdown (at least in my area) puts a bar too close in cost to a lower hybrid. This allows me to quickly divide the options into two lower implants vs lower hybrid. I agree, posting cases would be a great way to discuss things in more detail.

I believe a better description of the videos would have eliminated my complaints. Meaning, the content wasn't horrible, it was just a cliff notes to a bigger story. It sounds like the presenter will be offering a more complete guide to dentures at his institute in Colorado. In addition, the articulator is more of an interesting concept for anyone having their own lab. I have a fixed lab, and attempting to add removables. This articulator would certainly help a learning technician. I posted that the articulator wasn't a new concept. That was some what of a premature comment, as I was referring to the outlined anterior table highlighted at the end of one of the videos. Curtis

The gig system of the articulator for posterior setups might work well if combined with a neutral zone impression.

There are simply too many complaints to list them. Don't watch it. Funny thing is, I signed up on this website for these denture vids.

Is it not a an ESTABLISHED FACT that processing complete dentures almost always has "possibility" for migration of teeth called "processing errors"? which needs to be, or which can easily be eliminated by remounting and spot grinding, or at least "verified no processing errors" before digging the processed dentures out of the models ?
What ever happened to the "Physio-mechanical requirement" or the need for positioning the buccal cusps of lower posterior teeth vertically over the crest of the ridge (for functional effeciency). If it (positioning correctly) was followed, it is neither being mentioned in the narration nor it is evident in the video.
We do not ask the patient for acceptance of COLOR and arrangement when it (denture set up) is ready for processing...it would be best to have patient's approval at anterior try-in stage, and then for a final approval before processing.
What ever happend to face bow transfer and desired and required orientation of occlusal plane on to the articulator?

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Digital Impression Workflow & In-Office Milling Using CS Solutions
This course will describe a new reality in the creation of CAD –CAM generated restorations. Carestream dental has created a system which allows the user to generate ceramic restorations in office or through an internet portal to a dental laboratory. The system will allow dentist to create single unit ceramic restoration, implant abutments, printed models for orthodontics, and in the future precision implant surgical guides. The course will cover the CS3500 camera acquisition unit, its use, and export of images to the Restore software for restoration design to be milled in office, or export the image file to a desired dental milling laboratory. The design phase using the Restore software and the CS 3000 milling unit will be covered in depth so the viewer will be familiar with the CS system so they will be able to fabricate a milled ceramic restoration in either an open format, milling laboratory or a closed format in their office.

Achieving Esthetic Results Through Restorative Solutions in Implant Dentistry
In the anterior maxilla, the rehabilitation of patients with implant supported restorations is often challenging for clinicians due to the high esthetic demand expressed by patients and anatomic limitations. This lecture will concentrate on restorative treatment guidelines to achieve esthetic results in implant dentistry. It will provide solutions to improve esthetic outcome, as well as guidelines to achieve a more predictable result. In addition, evidence-based outcomes reported in literature evaluating “Pink” implants and abutments will be discussed. This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the surgeon and restorative doctor for all restorative options in tooth replacement therapy.
