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. With the widespread use of intraoral scanners, capturing the edentulous soft tissue as well as digitizing traditional records, have changed the way we fabricate dentures. 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? This lecture will compare the physical properties of milled and printed complete dentures to help determine their best applications.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
• Discuss the benefits of digital dentures.
• Utilize intraoral scanners to streamline digital denture workflows.
• Compare 3D printed and milled denture properties.
