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?

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Multitasking Digital Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
The "Digital Smile Design" is a technique codified and published in 2011 by Christian Coachman and Marcelo Calamita. This approach has radically changed the way we analyze the aesthetics of our patients and at the same time gave the clinician a great tool of communication with the laboratory and with the patient. In recent years, softwares and applications have been introduced on the market in order to simplify the workflow and make more predictable the outcome. The purpose of the lecture is to resume the current concepts about digital aesthetic preview, and to show new trends.

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.

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype

Relationships Between Different Tooth Shapes and Patient’s Periodontal Phenotype
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether any correlation exists between tooth shapes and patient-related factors such as gingival and periodontal characteristics. Clinical measurements, including the width and the height of maxillary central incisor crowns, the apico incisal height of the keratinized mucosa, the buccal gingival thickness (GT), the depth of the sulcus, the bone-sounding depth (BS) and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla, were investigated in 50 healthy individuals. These individuals were then divided into three groups based on the shape of their maxillary central incisor crowns: triangular; square; or square-tapered. The results of this study indicate that different tooth shapes are associated with significantly different values for the extent of the KM, its bucco-lingual thickness and the height of the interproximal maxillary central papilla.

CAD/CAM Solutions for Minimally Invasive All-Ceramic Rehabilitation of Extended Erosive Lesions
Dental erosion is a global health problem that can lead to significant functional and esthetic impairments of the affected patients. Treatment of sever cases with augmented loss of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) represents a challenge for both the dental team and the patient. CAD/CAM technology was used in the presented case to analyze the inter-occlusal space. The case report documents a practical, digital approach and discusses the advantages related to treatment time, ease of treatment, and predictability.

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations

In Practice Maintenance of Esthetic Restorations
During my career in dentistry, I have seen patients successfully maintain their restorations for more than 40 years. Other patients have needed replacement or repair in less than 5 years. Why is there such a tremendous range? Obviously, the lifespan of a restoration has a strong correlation to its original fabrication quality. But professional dental oral maintenance plus home care by the patient can greatly influence the lifespan of restorations as well. This article addresses the basic elements…
