    Hi all , hope someone can help. I’m trying to create a design with an unprepared model so I can supply a PMMA provisional bridge so the dentist can prep the teeth and fit the bridge as long term provisional. I have watched all the videos on site regarding provisional but cannot fine one that shows pontics being made with the bridge. The cases on the site dont show any pontic just temp shell crowns

    Think I have figured out I use eggshell provisional for teeth and pontic waxup for pontics and after designed crowns the wax ups just appear

      Yes! That’s exactly right. Since there’s no tooth for the pontic, you wouldn’t select eggshell. Select pontic waxup for the pontic and activate connectors to the neighboring teeth (eggshell provisionals).

      Honestly, a lot of DentalCAD functionality can be performed in other CAD programs, especially meshmixer. Sure, you CAN do it in meshmixer, but it’s a ton more work. DentalCAD just automates a lot of those workflows. Take tooth segmentation, for example. DentalCAD does it automatically with one button click. You CAN do it in meshmixer in a much more tedious fashion.
