Adapt to antagonist / adjacent
From exocad documentation
Adapting to occlusion and adjacent (proximal)
|This screen allows you to adapt restorations to the antagonist (if scanned), and to the adjacent teeth.
If you have used the Virtual Articulator feature (available as an add-on module; requires supported scanner for a direct facebow transfer or you can manually set the occlusal set using Bonwill's triangle), you may chose between static or dynamic occlusion .
You can define a desired distance to the antagonist (for anatomic and reduced parts) using the slider(s) desired distance .
For the actual adaptation, you have the choice between a smart shape-preserving adaptation , which will try to preserve the tooth morphology, or simply cutting intersections with the antagonist, cut intersection .
To adapt to anterior teeth, switch to Approximal .
|When Pull to Adjacent Teeth is checked, the teeth will be adapted even if there is no contact prior to adaptation
When done, click 'Next'.
Adapting pontics to the gingiva
|Using the "Pontic" tab, you can adapt pontics to the gingiva.
The Desired Distance  slider controls the distance to the gingiva after the adaptation:
When designing reduced pontics, the "Freeform" screen will appear twice, once before and once after the reduction. Therefore it's your choice whether to perform the pontic adaptation on the full anatomic or on the reduced shape. To make sure that the exact distance value  is respected in the final restoration, perform the adaptation after the reduction.
Finally, click Adapt to gingiva  to perform the actual adaptation.
