Routine Crown Prep By Dr. Cory Glenn As Seen On Dental Town
ER pt today. Broke the ML cusp #19 and had some lingual decay so I opted for zirconia crown. Asst wanted to reappoint and I was thinking “are you crazy? Put some topical on and I’ll be there in a minute”. Took 8 minutes to prep and impress and then asst another 5 to temporize. Why would you ever reappoint for that?
Video is with my new toy- Surgitel Loupe Cam. Only editing is a few seconds to make it HIPAA compliant where I showed pt face. Meising Occlusal Router bur to take 1.5 off the top and then a medium grit 014 round end tapered bur for the rest. Picasso laser retraction. Impression with triple tray and Genie VPS.
Assistant did a triple tray impression while anesthesia set in……….used a bur to hollow out the broken cusp back into the impression and then she made the temp with Integrity Bis Acryl. I was out after sticking the impression in the mouth.
