example screen shot, I've put together a Hawley Retainer for my patient.
The Prescription Workspace is fully interactive meaning
you can move parts, drag-and-drop items, click on menu options to add
comments, set part options, acrylic colors, and so much more.
the left side you will see [Parts, Appliances, and Templates] - here we
house the Universal Library of Parts, Appliances and Templates. If
your lab you are connected to has custom parts, they will show those
options as well, parts and appliances may vary slightly depending on
which lab you are sending the prescription to. The interface is a tree
view -- to find a part, appliance or template, just click on the
appropriate item to see what is below. Or you can use the [Search] bar
to find items if you are not sure where to navigate to find them.
you find the items you want, you can hover your mouse over the Camera
icon, to give you a preview of what the drawing looks like.
How do I get a part, appliance or template to the workspace?
can either drag and drop it on a certain area of the upper or lower
drawing space, choose a particular tooth or area (if applicable with the
part) to set the part in place. You can optionally just click the part
once with your left-click and it will auto-place it in the workspace to
the default area. Then you can drag it to the position you like.
parts and appliances have various 'points' you can drag/reposition.
There will be a BLUE CIRCLE on the currently placed part/appliance to
show you what 'points' can be dragged with your mouse to reposition it.
For example a simple clasp will have may have only 1 blue circle to drag
the entire part to another tooth. An RPE may have numerous points to
adjust Arms, Wires, and Band positions. You will only see the blue
circles on whichever item is currently selected. Don't worry, the blue circles do not show on the drawing once they are submitted to the lab.
you want to show a BAND on your drawing, just search for the "Band"
part in the library and drag/drop it onto the drawing. EasyRx also has
Crowns where you can search for "Crown" and place them on your
prescription. These are normally used for crown cantilever herbsts and
other similar appliances.
Helpful hint: Some
parts/appliance can be dragged to the Upper or Lower arch. EasyRx has
some rules in place. Such as you cannot drag an "Upper Invisible
Retainer" part to the Lower Arch. You can drag most parts to teeth on
the lower OR the upper arch.
What if the part/appliance I've dragged has a blue circle and a red 'gear wheel' in it?
means the item you just placed also has "Part Options" you can assign
to it. If you click on the red gear wheel button on your menu bar, you
can choose that item and set additional details. For example, on a
Labial Bow you can define part options like what Type of Bow (Contour or
flat?) and Wire Size (.028 .032 etc). On RPEs, you would usually set
what type of Screw you need. On a recurve spring (sometimes referred to
as a Z spring or Mattress Spring), you will have the option to 'flip'
the part and so forth... This helps you lab hone in on every detail they
need to get your case just right.
What if I do not choose a part option?
worries, you can add a comment or a text annotation (discussed a little
bit further down) to the case letting the lab know what you need. If
the lab has a question, they will contact you to address any missing
details they need. Some labs are very familiar with their customers, so
if your lab knows your requests thoroughly, you may not need to include
If you are unsure that the drawing is going to
match what you exactly need, you can always add a comment, labs are
trained by EasyRx to look for these instructions on your cases
regardless of what your drawing looks like.
are a huge time saver in EasyRx. Where instead of needing to
find/search for various parts to form your Rx, you can, in 1 click,
instantly add your most commonly submitted appliance into the workspace.
You have the ability to create your own templates OR the lab you are
submitting to can create/provide you with templates.
practice's templates that you've created are shown under the canvas when
on the Prescription Workspace on the [Templates] tab.
also view all your templates and those that your Lab has designed for
your practice from the [Templates] button on the left hand side. You can
tell which templates are provided by your lab by looking to the right
of the template name. There will be a blue circle with a letter inside.
If you'd like to create your own templates, it's very simple!
can drag/drop all the parts/appliances onto the drawing, designate your
part options, and even add Annotations/comments. Then you can click the
'double page' icon called [Save as a template], give your template a
name, and this will create a template for you to use anytime moving
forward! When you place a template on the workspace, you can still make
any adjustments you'd like (adjusting positions, adding clasps, removing
a comment, etc)
Help - I cannot find the part or appliance I need to make my drawing!
got you: We've done our best to 'standardize' the names of the various
parts and appliances that exist in the ortho world. Odds are what you
need is just named something differently. For example, a "Keeper Wire"
in EasyRx is referred to as a "Labial Support Wire". MEA's are referred
to as RPE's (we keep it old school). If you cannot find what you need,
call us and we can tell you the exact item you need to complete your
If for some reason the item you need
does not exist, we are happy to develop/add it into your EasyRx account
at no cost. We are constantly working to improve your experience on the
Prescription Workspace so be sure to view our monthly update emails that
are sent to our customers-- they will also advise if there are new
appliances or parts added to your library.
