Optimize Your Digital Dental Workflow

Speaker: Adrienne Slevin

Supported by NextDent by 3D Systems

The process of manufacturing digital dentures requires a good understanding of the different technology utilized at the different production steps. Scanning the existing dentures or impressions will provide an accurate and easy start of the digital process. For implant dentures, photogrammetry will be used to include the accurate implant positions, as well as any additional needed scan data for projects being done digitally. Different design services and software for denture design are available to transform the scanned data into digital denture files ready for production. These files will need to be transferred into machining language appropriate for successfully milling or printing a denture base or tooth structure. In production, the most commonly used tools are CAM software programs to translate CAD into proper parameters for processing. These software component choices are key to a successful outcome of the digital dentures during manufacturing. Additive, subtractive, and hybrid manufacturing solutions all have varying advantages, disadvantages, and materials available.

Learning Objectives:
1. Explore how the digital denture workflow can be used for achieving high-quality restorations.
2. Identify the digital denture workflow and benefits for printing and nesting.
