Adding Materials to Millbox Milling Options

For our coritec users: new users often mislabel restorations in the Rx form that leads to a lot of trouble. like calling a crown and onlay or vice versa. this can lead to all kinds of trouble

first sign of trouble is if the two purple lines don’t define the borders of the the restoration. sometimes it is missing, other times it is off the restoration. so always double check this step and usually the missed nomenclature is what causes the trouble.

the next problem people have is that the default setting for the sprue design is poor. it makes the sprue thicker at the mandrel than the restoration. this creates a crevice that the drill can’t get to. this leads to quick drill breakage as it tries to drill into that space (red circle). it is easy to set change these settings so the drill “flows” with the design of the sprue and you get a lot of use out of it. it’s annoying to do this manually so a subsequent video shows you how to change this by default.

another problem is the offset. the last video shows the distance from the restoration to the mandrel as 2mm. the drill is 2.5 in diameter. if you set it at 2, the calculation doesn’t allow enough space for the drill that also breaks it off. set it at 2.7 or 3 and it will last you a long time.

two subsequent videos will show you how to create your own blocks and change their orientation, so you can fit a taller design into a smaller size block

Milling a Bridge with Cerec mcxl (and imes icore coritec and z4 by VHF) from same scan and design

In Digital Dentistry, once you acquire your models accurately, the CAD software doesn’t care where and how you capture them.  Once you are done with the design, the cam and the milling machine have no clue what scanner you used.

here we take an intra-oral scan with the medit i500 and design in exocad and send it to 2 different milling machines. One is the CEREC MCXL and the other is the imes icore coritec one.

we even milled the bridge with the z4 milling machine by vhf just to show the concept works

When it comes to single visit dentistry (procedures in under 90 minutes), CEREC is tough to beat. From the integrated camera, CAD software and mill, CEREC is the most streamlined technology to serve patients in one visit.

Nevertheless, increasingly doctors are expanding their range of indications with CAD/CAM technologies and sometimes we simply want to combine CEREC with other equipment and software manufacturers. But wait, isn’t CEREC a closed system? Yes and no. While nobody would accuse CEREC of being a completely open system, it is possible to export .STL files of CEREC scans which gives us some flexibility to bring CEREC scans into other programs.

But today we are not focusing on exporting CEREC scans, but rather:

1) How can we bring scans from other cameras into CEREC?

Example: I own a 3rd Party Camera and I want to import those scans into CEREC for making crowns, etc.

2) How can we use CEREC to mill CAD objects made from 3rd Party Software?

Example: I own a 3rd Party CAD Software and want to import those into CEREC for milling.

But wait, I thought no 3rd Party files (scans or CAD designs) may be imported into CEREC. How, then, can we unlock the system? The missing piece to the puzzle is the inLab Software! With inLab Software, the CEREC system can be opened up for all kinds of interesting workflows. Here are two workflows CEREC owners constantly ask us about:

 1) I own a 3rd Party Camera – How do I mill from my MC XL?

2) I own a 3rd Party CAD Software (e.g. exocad) and I want to mill (e.g. crowns) designed with 3rd Party software and mill them with my MC XL

 

Please note carefully the Requirements listed above!

–  If you want to import a Scan .STL… You will need the inLab SW Interfaces Module, inLab CAD Software (18.0 and above) andthe inLab CAM Software (18.0 and above).

–  If you want to import CAD .STL designs for milling… You only need inLab CAM Software (18.0 and above).

–  In case you never owned any inLab Software before, or your copy of inLab Software is below 4.X, you will additionally need to order the License Stick (SKU: 6364785) and install the License Stick on the PC or workstation on which you are using the inLab Software (CAD or CAM). Please note this is NOT the same License Stick as you have on your CEREC AC unit!

–  In no case can the inLab Software mill on the CEREC MC!

Still have questions? No problem, we are here with answers: Contact us

Good luck everyone and Happy Milling!

Premolar Crown with Medit i500, Meditlink, exocad, Amber Mill Block, Coritec One by Imes Icore, and Millbox CAM Software

In this clinical case a patient lost a pre-existing crown. The remaining tooth structure had recurrent decay and a new crown was warranted.
After anesthesia was administered, the clearance from opposing dentition was assessed. The preparation was reduced to accommodate the necessary thickness of the material.
Once adequate clearance was achieved an Optragate was placed and an isolite was used to isolate the area. The preparation was scanned and then the lower arch was captured. The buccal bite was then taken to along the arches together

With Meditlink software, you have the option of designing the case yourself or sending it off to your partnered lab. The following video shows what happens to your case once the lab downloads the case

In this particular case, we designed our own crown and milled it with the coritec one milling machine

Once the amber lithium disilicate material was milled, its for was verified clinically. The crown was then crystallized and seated with NX3 resin cement
