Not Enough Clearance? No Problem!

Upon preparing the second molar for full cuspal coverage, the lack of clearance necessitated a refining the preparation. The great part of digital dentistry is that you don’t have to take a whole new impression.
You can just selectively crop out the area that needs refinement, protect the areas you are satisfied with, and fill in the areas that are missing data. You can see how this case was managed in this video and how the final buccal bite was captured. We always recommend that you capture the bite at the last step so that you can verify clearance through the camera itself.
