Complete denture prosthetics: New tooth setups for enhanced patient satisfaction

5 October 2018

When it comes to choosing the setup of teeth in the fabrication of complete dentures, conventional tooth mould charts are not always helpful.

When it comes to choosing the setup of teeth in the fabrication of complete dentures, conventional tooth mould charts are not always helpful. The Smile Finder Kit eliminates this shortcoming. 

The difference in the esthetic appearance that is achieved by setting teeth up differently is illustrated by means of four different sample setups of anterior teeth.

One tooth mould – four different looks

It's amazing how a different setup of the anterior teeth can change the overall appearance of the dentition, even if the same tooth moulds are used! A slight rotation of the central incisors, for example, will increase their prominence and add a personal touch to the denture – and to its wearer. No denture off the shelf, but one that is as individual as the patients themselves..

Patients know what they will get

Patients are usually very sure of what their dentures should look like. But how should they convey their ideas to their dentist? Words alone are usually not enough – they leave considerable room for misinterpretation, and disappointment is inevitable when the denture is delivered.  

Demo models with different tooth setups are a very useful tool during patient consultation. They help patients describe in detail what they want. If this information is also passed on to the dental technician, there is a high probability that the final tooth replacement will meet the patient's expectations.

The Smile Finder brochure rounds out the assortment. It shows the sample setups mentioned in conjunction with different types of denture teeth on paper. The brochure can be added to the order together with the respective notes or given to the patients to take home with them.
