SES-1 - Keynote Presentation: Creating Our Future: Printed Digital Dentures

‐ Apr 12, 2024 9:00am

For many decades, very little changed with the way we make dentures. Over the last ten years, we have finally started to see technology transform the status quo. As workflows evolve to incorporate digital dentistry, clinicians can benefit from interweaving components of both conventional and digital denture workflows. 3D printing allows for workflows that have never been possible. This course will walk through incorporating 3D printing into various digital denture workflows. Systematic clinical guidelines will be presented that make chairside steps easier, and results more predictable for both the clinician and the laboratory team. The program will also demonstrate the evolution of digital denture materials and fabrication methods to provide higher strength, better fit, a permanent archive of the denture, happier patients and happier staff!
