Since the introduction of digital dentures, many aspects have improved. Such improvements include streamlined workflows, easy to use software, and new and improved manufacturing techniques. This presentation will demonstrate the clinical workflows and discuss the pros and cons of using these emerging techniques. Additionally, it is widely known that 3D printed complete dentures are becoming a viable option, but how do they compare to milled dentures? We'll compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.
Then you will learn the benefits and get hands-on experience with a three-appointment workflow to fabricate digital dentures. This will include how to create a custom tray chairside in minutes, how to modify and evaluate a Wagner Try-in and record a centric relation record. Upon completion of this workshop you should feel comfortable starting a digital denture in your office.
Participants in this course will gain knowledge in the following areas:
Review clinical workflows for digital dentures
Discuss how to utilize intraoral scanners to streamline your digital denture workflow
Compare 3D printed and milled denture properties
Discuss how to use a three-appointment workflow for digital dentures
Learn to evaluate and modify a digital denture preview online
Practice creating a custom tray, evaluating and modifying a Wagner Try-in, and create a Centric Relation Record
