Digital Denture is the word used to describe the entire workflow involved in the fabrication of a CAD/CAM milled, full denture.

Do you know the Digital Denture (= digital prostheses)? It is a new system for the manufacture of removable dentures. The term Digital Denture is the word used to describe the entire workflow involved in the fabrication of a CAD/CAM milled, full denture. The process is made up of innovative devices, software and materials suitable for both dentists and dental technicians.

Data flows into the design software

Precise and functional in just a few steps to success: That’s what Digital Denture stands for. The workflow begins with the impression and registration of the patient situation, using clinical tools to optimize the individual data collection.  This information is transferred to the design software using an add-on. It is included in the denture design. Subsequently, a CAM unit designed for the particular indication, mills the denture base from appropriate materials.

The pre-registration is easy and yet precise with Centric Tray. Using the UTS CAD, the dentist determines the position of the occlusal plane in relation to the camper's plane and to the bipupillary line. Both values are transferred using the Digital Denture Professional Design software and specify the virtual occlusal plane. With the support pin registration device, Gnathometer CAD, it is easy to determine the individual jaw position intraorally in edentulous patients. The denture design is therefore patient-specific.

Scanner and professional software

The add-on module Digital Denture Professional is based on 3Shape's software modules. It is user-friendly and offers a higher level of denture quality and functionality. The individual tray with integrated bite registration can be created digitally. This means the digital workflow begins at a very early stage.  The software is linked with the patient-specific occlusal plane, centric and vertical dimension. The tooth library includes an exclusive range of Ivoclar Vivadent and Candulor tooth lines. With this innovative approach, the leap from average value dentures to digitally manufactured, customized dentures is achieved.
