Dentistry has fully embraced the digital age and its integration into one of the oldest treatments in dentistry is proof that it is here to stay. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) of complete dentures was introduced following the success of CAD/CAM in implant and fixed prosthodontics. CAD/CAM complete dentures have seen exponential growth in the dental market with the number of commercially available CAD/CAM denture systems growing every year. Interest in CAD/CAM has also been affected by a reduction in the number of dental laboratory technicians with extensive experience and expertise with traditional fabrication processes. This CE webinar will cover key aspects related to the current status of computer technology for the fabrication of complete dentures and removable partial dentures.
Upon completion of this CE webinar, participants should be able to: • Review the literature pertaining digital denture processes • Learn the clinical and fabrication procedures associated with 2 or 3-appointment workflow in order to organize and implement a simplified but high-quality removable prosthodontic service in a contemporary busy dental practice • Single out the materials and different options available for the fabrication of an Ivoclar CAD/CAM digital complete dentures (single denture, complete dentures, immediate dentures, implant-supported overdentures, and implant dentures) • Discuss how the removable digital workflow benefits both the dental technician and the clinician • Placement and post-placement of CAD/CAM complete dentures (
