    Here is a case I finished recently using Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin as my sole material for Socket Preservation. In this case the patient is on Coumadin and his chief concern is bleeding to death after the extractions. He was referred by the denturist who will be placing a lower cast chrome partial to replace…

    Here is the world schedule for A-PRF, you could also take the CGF course or Miller's L-PRF course but ignore the speeds, temperature and time according to Miller.   [attachment=284:A-PRF schedule.jpg]

    Hi, i am  Elizabeth Darden   Thanks for post your thought. The extraction of lower right molar because of cracked root,  you done great job. A dental implant is a titanium implant post anchored into the jawbone as replacement for a missing natural tooth root and into which an artificial tooth is attached, i think so. Thank…

    Over the last several months, i've noticed that anterior milling times are excessively long, upwards of almost 30 minutes for a standard crown or veneer!  Also, noticed strange swirl/overmill issues on the surface where the sprew is placed..  or, the restoration will break off the sprue..  Is there a more ideal sprew position than what…

    Anteriors tend to take longer, 20 minutes plus isn't unusual depending on the size of the restoration.  Does sound like the sprue position might be the culprit with that milling issue.  I'd have SOS remote in and look at the case, maybe get some photos of the restoration next time it happens.

    Hi all, I'm from down under, Australia, and bought a demo PlanmecaFit from Henry Schein Halas - it was a brand new system delivered in 2016. Signed the contract just before Christmas in December last year, but took delivery in January. It's been a nightmare with the delivery. The original miller unit was arrived from interstate damage,…

    Perfect, You're all up to date (actually I think I may still be on Romexis 4.4).  Hopefully the video is helpful.  Any questions don't hesitate to ask!

    Anybody's thoughts on what's on the horizon? Schein sells Cerec worldwide. Interesting times for sure.

    I've always been a little confused at to why E4D chooses not to work with passwords on the workstations.  Passwords are the most basic unit of network security and HIPPA mandates that PHI is protected.  If someone were to steal one of my laptops, I would be required by law to inform patients that their…

    Thanks for the help.  I was under the impression that adding a password to my laptop would 'break' the communication with the mill and job server... I'll call SOS for some advice.

    Greetings fellow Planscanners!  Newbie to the ways of scanning, designing, and milling here, but loving every minute of it! Our practice did training in Richardson, TX last month, and we just had our Integration Day this past Tuesday....   Our 4 cases went extremely well, can't believe how these things fit so well!  It is…

    So I got this literature from 3M today with photos of two class I restored teeth, and it made me question my current treatment planning process.  The photo has teeth #30 and #31 with large older amalgams being replaced with filtek composite.  My issue was on tooth #31 it looks like a large fracture is…

    31 has a vertical mesio-distal fracture. It is heading straight towards the pulp, it is only a matter of time before it gets there. So the goal is to stop crack propagation. I would place Ribbond across the floor and then an e.max onlay to completely lock up the compression dome to prevent further crack…

    Hi Everyone, Ok, so I'm at an impasse. I would like to be able to complete some single visit endo, core, crown procedures (I think it is AMAZING to be able to do that for our patients, by the way...TRIFECTA!) but I've heard somewhat conflicting opinions on the subject, even on these forums. So, what…

    Dutton Dentistry, the clinic where Dr. Mark Walker practices, also uses digital software for X-rays to cut down on paper and film waste. “By using digital X-rays, we have eliminated chemical development of film,” dentist Mark Walker pointed out, Mark Walker dentist. “Those chemicals used to be dumped into sewage as well.”

    Just got back from training in Dallas. Did my first scan, design and deliver yesterday. The one thing they didn't tell you in sales pitches or training, this is ADDICTING! Can't wait to really get going. Excited to bounce ideas and cases off you guys moving forward

    When I’m in the county and people ask me, Dr Mark Walker what do you think of the submarine debacle, I tell them, I support proudly holding on to a piece of Canadian history and displaying it in our community, Dr. Mark Walker.

    My assistant just brought me the Schein catalog.  She likes the idea of a cover that goes over the wand.   Product #  631-4114   She states that this will help protect the mirror and improve infection control. Has anyone tried this product?  Is it worth the investment?   Thanks

    However, I think Ottawa and the federal government has forgotten about small communities that make Canada a great country, Mark Walker dentist. I have little doubt that if the submarine had ended up in Ottawa or downtown Toronto, the federal government would have helped pay the transportation costs.
