Digital Dentures have revolutionized the way most denturists manufacturer removable dentures.
In order to fabricate these CAD/CAM milled full dentures, a modernized and standardized workflow needs to be followed, involving several innovative devices, software, and specific materials that result in higher quality and better fitting dentures.
Data driven design
Two things that set Digital Dentures apart from traditional dentures are the data they utilize and the way that data is collected.
During your initial appointment, your denturist will use a 3D scanner to take digital impressions of your bite. From this, they can create an accurate prototype for your dentures. With the help of computer technology, that prototype can be digitally printed and kept for years to come in case your dentures ever get damaged or lost and you need a quick repair!
Once your 3D prototype is ready, your denturist will ensure it has the correct fit, evaluate its functionality, and ensure you are comfortable while wearing the new set of prosthetic teeth. After the 3D prototype has been properly fitted and all necessary adjustments are completed, the final denture can be made.
Digital dentures allow for greater accuracy throughout the design process. By only your third appointment, the final dentures should be fitting comfortably and only need minor adjustments. Through data and technology, the creation of digital dentures have allowed for patients to have a more accurate experience and enjoy better fitting comfortable dentures with fewer appointments needed.
A bright future for dentures
