Well practical time has rolled around again (#3 this time). Anyway I thought this could be beneficial for everyone. So post up your tricks of the trade or stuff that you have learned in the trenches. One tip of mine is Use waxing powder not articulating paper to check occlusion if you value your cusps. And another one which seems intuitive but I see so many people struggle with occusal anatomy -- get the dentoform tooth as close as possible to the tooth you are working on and in the same orientation (I like to use boxing wax and actually place it inside the dentoform arch adjacent to the wax tooth) -- this makes copying occlusal anatomy so much easier.
