    Protrusive Dental Pearl: There is a benefit of having nice tight contacts on our temporary crowns - but how can we polish our temporary crowns without ending up with open contacts? The trick is to get a Sharpie pen or indelible pencil and color in a small circle (maybe about two to three millimeters) mesial and distal of where the contact area is. Now finish and polish your temporary crown using burs/discs BUT do not touch that penciled mark. Ta da! You have just maintained the contact area. I know, why didn't anyone tell you before?!

    What Happens When Occlusal Splints Don’t Work? – PDP118

    What happens when conservative care fails? What if you have prescribed patient education and the 'best' occlusal appliance and none of it is working? That's where surgery MAY be indicated for certain diagnoses. Listen or Watch my podcast with Professor Andrew Sidebottom Maxillofacial surgeon (who is limited to the management of TMJDs) to help us make timely and appropriate referrals to provide the best possible outcome for our patients.

    Dental Ceramics in 2022 – Which Ceramic Should I Use? – PDP117

    Dental Ceramics in 2022 – Which Ceramic Should I Use? – PDP117

    Zirconia Veneers!? eMax vs LiSi? Which type of Zirconia should I use (and yes, there are 3 main types of Zirconia!) and is there still a place for Feldspathic veneers? These burning questions is why I brought on the OG: Ed McLaren. What Dr Ed McLaren does not know about dental ceramics is not worth knowing, and he gives it all away on this cracker of an episode which is sure to go down in Protrusive Hall of Fame!

    Protrusive Dental Pearl: How to mask a metal post? For me, a post-core is just a space-filler, it's a way to retain some sort of foundation/core restoration. I do not mind cutting it back a little bit - below I share a video of how to mask a metal core using Paracore White Opaque, to help my ceramist. You can also use an opaquer resin such as Ivoclar Direct Opaque - it's like Dental Tipex!
