CAD/CAM technology has allowed for the first major change in fabricating a denture in decades. Digital technology has been developed which has brought the precision and speed of CAD/CAM technology to removable dentistry. This course will discuss and demonstrate the technique utilized for the construction of a Digital Denture which makes it possible for dentists to offer their patients a precise -fitting, aesthetic denture in as little as two appointments.
This course will cover key aspects related to optimally accurate records that can then be used to produce the prostheses. Procedures to be discussed include making impressions, recording occlusal vertical dimensions and the fabrication process.
- Understand the clinical techniques required to produce optimal clinical records required for the digital denture, including the use of moldable impression trays and the use of an anatomical measuring device
- Understand the laboratory procedures used to construct the computer‐aided designed milled denture
