      From wax to processed acrylic utilizing polished ZR abutments , telescopic copings, and frame support.

      That's really nice. I've only done the syncone.
      What's maintanance look like on this approach?
      If you need to replace a secondary, do you remove the primary to make a new one?
      That seems the most logical; I'm just curious.

      Maintanance should be minimal. 2 degree taper, with plenty of length for retention.
      This was seated over six months ago, no issues. Nice thing is, patient can have the feeling
      of a fixed, but remove to for hygiene.

      What am I missing about your procedure that you have notches on the land area, and the land area is gone in the first picture. Just can't figure it out. Could you please help an idiot.

      Ah! I'd never used notches. Probably should. Thanks.

      The notches were for a putty matrix. I duplicate all my implant case using Zhermack silicon.
      So the first photo was with the duplicate with the cast cut back to invest. Technique has been very accurate,
      with no issues.

      It just ensures proper orientation. I hate doubt. It creates stress

      Yep. Variable removale or mitigation is key to most of this. There are enough we can't control.

      Guy that trained me said my job was the same as Cool Hand Luke's Warden. To get it across to every model, every process, every die that "You will conform" and "a failure to communicate" was not an option.
