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?

It is evident there are a variety of malocclusion and health concerns that can be treated by orthodontic therapy. Factors from treating systemic issues to minor tooth movement can be addressed specifically to the patients’ needs and desires. Not only is it important for the dental team to be aware that orthodontics can improve one’s quality and longevity of life, but that the knowledge of current orthodontic therapy treatment modalities available will enhance the overall comprehensive care the patient receives.

Esthetic and Functional Rehabilitation: A Case Report
Most people want to look beautiful. The ability to express feelings is fundamental to the quality of life, but expressing emotions is impossible without the freedom to smile. A patient with an ill-fitting removable denture and a fixed, porcelain-fused-to-metal bridge sought care to improve her smile. This fixed bridge was removed and direct provisional restorations placed, followed by crown-lengthening surgery and implant placement, waiting 10 months for the patient to heal. We waited one month to check occlusal stability and patient satisfaction and then made the final precision impressions and master casts. We cemented the final restorations; lithium disilicate allowed the creation of an esthetic result without sacrificing strength with use of both full-anatomy and layered techniques. Dental implants make it possible to have non-removable teeth that can be integrated esthetically and functionally, allowing the recreation of tooth color, form, and structure to reestablish a pat

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

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.

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens
Bleaching is the most conservative esthetic treatment for discolored teeth when compared to resin-bonded composites, porcelain veneers, or crowns. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of power bleaching using a laser assisted hydrogen peroxide system, and to determine the stability of the color change over a 6-month period.
