Is removable prosthodontics the final frontier of digital dentistry? It took 20 years for the CAD-CAM crown to come mainstream, but only five years for dentures to become the hottest topic in computer-aided technology. Creating great removable prostheses requires a basic understanding of making great denture impressions and obtaining proper records, regardless of the method (conventional vs digital). This presentation will introduce you to the latest advances in complete dentures and give you a fresh look at removable prosthodontics since dental school.
• Compare digital vs. conventional methods for impressions and occclusal records
• Understand fabrication methods of complete, immediate and implant overdentures
• Discuss the options available for the digital prosthesis; indications and application
• Apply knowledge from a wide variety of clinical case presentations to incorporate immediately into your practice
