Hi Mark,These are some  general questions regarding teeth set-ups for "Teeth in a Day" full arch solutions. 1) If the final is to be restored with a Zirconia prosthesis, do you still use linguoform teeth in your provisional prosthesis?2) Is the "lingualized occlusion" teeth set up something that is typically followed in the final Zirconia prosthesis as well?3) What sort of guidance pattern is recommended for most full arch cases?

Happy new year everyone!here's a patient , we are trying to get through the final restorative phase. No static bite exists. Had to fabricate lab processed temp crowns for pt to wear semi-longterm to figure out his 'functional bite'. Once he was comfortable, we did transfer mount. This goes to show how challenging a free-end case can be!I will keep you guys posted~...

I just delivered two screw retained implant crowns 25 and 26. I struggled with the angulation of the 26 due to very difficult access as the patient had limited opening. As a result the 26 was leaning to the buccal. Nick from SkyCad indicated that I would need to use the angled driver which Id rather do then cement retained. I didnt realized until delivery appointment that the angled driver does not fit into the hiossen torque wrench so I have ha...

 Hello   Hope all is well.   I have restored two implants with two seperate crowns with custom abutments on March 3rd.  Patient is complaining about food getting packed IP of 36/37 implant crowns. Crowns contacts are good, but there is a large gingival embrassure where the papilla is missing. I am thinking about solutions to minimize food packing and hygiene of the area. option  #1- send them back to the lab to over...

The #46 NobelActive implant was placed in 2009 by another dentist. When I saw the patient, there was suppuration coming from the gingival margin. PA shows bone loss to the 2nd thread in some areas. There is also open contact on both mesial and distal areas with food impaction. The crown was cement retain and there is evidence of excess cement at the implant level from the PA   The treatment plan is to remove the implant crown, clean out th...

Hello guys!   Here's an interesting restorative failure I've seen recently.  Of all the arches I've done, this is the first failure I've seen other than the odd tooth breakage.  Thought I'd share to see what you others have seen.....   Panorex is from delivery appointment in August.  Pa's from today.  See below.   Delivered final acrylic hybrid in August, always check for passive bar fit and check occlusion ...

Hello Docs. I hope all is well. I have attached a radiograph where I placed three implants( 1 4.5 and two 5.0 ) in the upper left quadrant.Both posterior implants have ISQ of 82 and the one in position 24 has 76 values. The patient really wants a screwed in fixed prosthetic.  My concern with it is the implant to prosthetic length ratio. The crowns in this case would be as much as twice the length as the implants. What do you think. ...

    Hello Everyone   I was wondering if placing multiunit abutments on all bar overdenture cases makes for more predicatable results (passive fit of bars) vs having bars fabricated at implant level? Also are there any concerns with placing angled implants with MUA's on removabale bar overdenture cases? I was thinking this way the patient could upgrade to a fixed prosthetic at a later time. Thanks Jessey...
