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?

The Aesthetic Cad/Cam Interface Premium Member Content

The Aesthetic Cad/Cam Interface
Computer aided design and computer aided manufacture has been involved in Dentistry for many years. Since the 1980’s we have been trying to produce in-surgery porcelain restorations with considerable variation in success. Common criticisms of this technique have been poor fits, poor aesthetics and poor occlusal control. Dr Julian Caplan has been involved in developing techniques utilizing this constantly changing technology to overcome these short falls. He has now reached a position where he is able to create beautiful, well fitting multiple restorations that allow proper functional control and he achieves this in a single day. This lecture will concentrate on Cerec technology and how he has utilized this over the last 10 years to producing highly aesthetic smile makeovers in a day.

OCCLUSION: Can We Possibly Simplify It? - Part 1
Over the past 20 years, many of us have been confused, frustrated, unsure and crazy about ... “How do I get my occlusion philosophy on the right path?” At NYU FMR we have developed tried and true techniques that are guaranteed to make you understand occlusion, contact points and mandibular movement that makes sense, is easy to diagnose and systematically treat with success. In addition being comfortable Restoring OVD, understanding TMJ joint position and treating the worn dentition. Using our SOT methods and Level 1-10 Occlusion Classification we can show you how to become successful in the “Occlusion” of your patients. Spend an hour with us and open up a whole new world of occlusion philosophy and understanding. This is the real deal!

Occlusion: What Else? Premium Member Content

Occlusion: What Else?
Occlusion-Confusion, most of the dentist feel this way. Occlusion is one of the most important part of dentistry but also the most controversy. Therefore it is essential to register and maintain the orthopedic stability of the stomatognathic system during the treatment and determine the musculoskeletal stable position during the dental procedures. In this lecture some common clinical problems that the dentist often has to deal with in the everyday practice will be presented and the treatment sequence to maintain the stomatognathic system stability will be presented.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

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.

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose

Using Air-Abrasive Technology to Diagnose
National Institute of Dental Research surveys indicate that the Incidence of pit and fissure caries constitutes a higher proportion of the total caries incidence among U.S. teens and children than in the past. Airabrasive technology may provide a more conservative alternative in the diagnosis and treatment of pit and fissure caries than traditional techniques using handpieces. The authors review characteristics of pit and fissure lesions and discuss methods for diagnosing and treating these lesions…
