Digital Workflow for Milled and Printed Complete Dentures
Time: 7:00 PM EDT, November 18, 2021
Intraoral scanning is applied extensively for fixed prostheses, but until recently it was underutilized for removable prostheses. Intraoral scanners can be used to capture the edentulous soft tissue as well as digitize traditional records for complete denture patients. This presentation will demonstrate the clinical workflow and discuss the pros and cons of using this emerging methodology. Additionally, it is widely known that 3D printed complete dentures are becoming a viable option, but how do they compare to milled dentures? This lecture will compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.
- To discuss how to utilize intraoral scanners to streamline your digital denture workflow
- To gain understanding how intraoral scanning can be used to fabricate complete dentures without conventional impressions
- To achieve a clear understanding when to use and not to use intraoral scanning for denture impressions
- To discuss the differences between 3D printed and milled denture
