Be sure that you are caring for the spindle on your milling machine properly. Check out some tips to prolong the life of your spindle and avoid lost time!
Two new mills from Roland: DWX-51D and DWX-4W. Both new mills will be on display at the LMT Lab Day East show.
I'm considering purchasing a 3 shape scanner soon. I've been evaluating various workflows and was wondering how many different ways current users are putting the scans to work. Such as; anyone splitting the files for SLM copings or zirconia coping with milled or printed wax ups for press-to restorations? Milled gold crowns with Strategic Milling? Any good or bad experiences with CAP or CMC? I've been milling in house with in-lab and have decided not to pursue another milling machine at this time. So I'm looking to partner with others to provide the mills. Thanks. — tagged 4 members
Hi everyone, I have been a Dental technician for 17 years and I am now contouring zirconia and running mills and I have done posterior design on 3shape. I am looking to further my career in Cad/cam and am looking for an opportunity to do that. I am willing to relocate. I would love to go south so if anyone knows of a job opening could you please let me know. Thank you — tagged 3 members
Anyone have any advice on zirconia bridge frameworks "warping"? Hardly ever happens with frameworks with no curve, but seems to be more frequent with 4 unit and larger frames that curve (anterior). Individual units fit terrific internally and marginally, but 2-3 out of 10 times the frames will rock slightly. We are sintering these alone with no rapid sintering cycles. — tagged Zirconia
Question: Most efficient workflow for entering and scanning cases? We've talked to several folks who have a single technician that enters and scans using multiple 3Shape scanners at a rate of 3.5 minutes per. Just curious as to how that workflow looks... — tagged 3Shape, Inc.
I have a doctor that uses the trios scanner. He wants to send a scan of the pre-op. I know its possible, I just don't know what he has to do on his end when logging in a case. Can someone please help?
I've noticed our Sirona InLab MCXL is starting to let off a foul odor. I wipe it down after it's been used, and try to keep the lid open when the chamber is still wet. Does anyone know of anything one can use to clean it that won't harm it, but will get that odor to go away? I also have a problem with the water jet holes plugging up, and the little brushes Sirona give you to "clean" them are a joke. I use a thin piece of wire in the holes, but I know that can't be that great for it. Does anyone have any suggestions on either matter? It'd be greatly appreciated. — tagged inLab MC XL
We had Sirona in lab rap in our lab lest Wednesday. We loved what we heard but not sure if we would make right choice by just going w them or shopping other system. What we like the most is that we would be able to do all staps ourselves from reciving files (just from cerec-ussers since they are closed system according to the rep) scanning conventional impressions /models (but not be able to send files to other labs-outsourcing labs in case there is a need except Infinident) and milling which we now outsource to other lab but we would also have to think about sintering oven which is another investment...See more and as of now we have lots of need for bruxier crowns, Oh and I forgot to mention we are full service so our partial work we outsource as well. Help!!!!
Here's another question for you... our full contour zirconia crowns have recently started looking less translucent than before and a little on the yellow side. We were debating the cause and have come up with two main ideas - either we're putting too many units in the sintering dish at night, or it's time to change the beads in the dish. What do you guys think? Throw out the beads or cut down the load, or something else we haven't thought? Thanks! — tagged Zirconia
Hello! It seems the holes where the water shoots out onto the burs of our inLab MC XL milling unit are clogged and make the water shoot off in other directions or not at all. Any suggestions on how I can clean these out? Also, suggestions on cleaning out the chamber in general? Thanks :) — tagged inLab MC XL
We've ran thousands of full zirconia crowns through our in-house milling and sintering with very few failures... until recently. One of our main doctors has had 3 break in the last month, and we just heard from another doctor that 2 others just broke. Any thoughts? — tagged Zirconia
Is there a website or directory to go to that compares all the open archetecture scanners (&milling machines if available) along with prices???
And what feedback does anyone have with open architecture scanners(besides the #1 3-shape)???? thanks! — tagged Scanners
