The Edentulous Patient in The Dental Digital Era

Presented by Dr Julian Conejo

 

CPD: 1.5 CPD Credit

 

Overview

Patients expect well fitted, esthetically pleasing, functional dentures. The means of denture fabrication, traditional or through digital processing, can play a role in patient satisfaction of their new dentures. This program will focus on how digitally produced dentures may provide a patient with an ideal denture with less chair-time, quicker turn-around with decreased anxiety for the dentist and patient. You will be guided through a workflow from start to finish, incorporating both traditional and digital concepts that merge together for the development and fabrication of modern-day dentures. From soft tissue scanning, treatment planning, capturing anatomical landmarks, setting of denture teeth, and digital fabrication of a denture will be addressed. Your edentulous patient can now experience a comfortable process that helps minimize appointments by reducing common errors of denture workflow.
