It's different John. I sometimes think it's like being a pedodontist, dealing with a lot of non-cooperative patients! Had one growling like a dog at me today. Many very elderly patients often with som ...

I got okay results with the H&H method. The impressions looked beautiful and it's great not having to pack cord. Problem was sometimes the crowns didn't go to place and I was always a little anxio ...

Is this a bit like the H&H method where you don't pack any cord?

What's your thinking on glass ionomers? I took a webinar tonight on the GC products EQUIA and EQUIA forte. They were just bulk filling the preps with the GI. They bond really well to tooth struc ...

I had trouble getting Anchor to set today.
Patient had decay under a crown. I was able to pop the crown off (a PFM), clean out the decay and it may need a root canal and new crown, but the tooth was ...

John, I have been a faithful Surpass user for some years now. I originally used Simplicity, but a few years ago we started bonding all our comps in with Surpass and sealed our crown preps with it too. ...

I would not have thought that John, that internal bleaching of a dark tooth is easier to match the color of an adjacent tooth than crowning the dark tooth.
Do you keep bleaching the tooth till it is ...

I agree John it probably is pretty much non vital. We see many teeth that are dark from previous trauma or possibly ortho. They have been asymptomatic for years. If there is no periapical pathology an ...

I am thinking in this case wouldn't it just be simpler to do an E-max crown on this tooth and send her by the lab to do a custom shade? I think you are going to spend more time trying to match this to ...

I started using Panavia after hearing Ray Bertolloti speak about it. I have been cementing Zirconium and E-max with it and so far so good. Any idea how Panavia compares to Ultra-cem?
I do tack the Pa ...

I finally found the chart on the Emax bridge I did.
It was a 5X7 bridge on a 90 yo patient. Yes I know what you're thinking. Doesn't have to last long! She's a fairly healthy patient and may li ...

I am out of the office at the moment in Uganda.
I will check my records when I get back on the details of the E-max bridge.
