About the event
The 3-appointment Digital Denture
Now, with the advent of even better CAD-CAM technologies for complete dentures, dentists and laboratories can provide patients with more predictable results, that can be done in fewer, simpler, yet more accurate steps. This program will review denture fabrication methods and show what techniques have changed (and what has not). The latest in 3D printing processes and materials will be highlighted, showing their strength, accuracy, and esthetics. Presentation includes systematic clinical guidelines for the 3-appointment denture that make the chairside steps and results more predictable and easier to accomplish. This program is ideal for dentists and their teams that have been frustrated with traditional denture steps, materials, and procedures. At the completion of this course, participants will understand:
• Clinical records – what is needed for success and how to obtain them
• Denture impressions – where we are today
• A simple systematic approach to a 3-appointment digital denture
• Denture fabrication methods and how current CAD-CAM technologies have improved them
• The latest 3D printed denture materials that are stronger than anything ever used
• Utilizing a functional try-in and why it’s better
• Removable clinical tips and tricks for a less stressful experience and result
