Distal Extension Second Molar Crown Replacement in Copy Mode and With Two Bites

Every distal extension case I have to accomplish the following:

  • take two bites to make sure my vertical dimension does not change with pre-op and prep images
  • make sure I have proper clearance
  • We usually take the bites and all other images BEFORE I have even imaged the prep- I usually grab the prep images last
  • most of this you can delegate to your team and just take the prep images and make it simple for yourself

this video shows the clinical steps. to see what the lab does with your case, click in the link to see the subsequent steps. you can also choose to design and mill it, which is what I did
