The digital denture is a type of denture that uses a three-dimensional (3D) printer to manufacture a denture from digital dental impressions. At Summit Denture Clinic, the digital impressions are taken with a scanner that is part of the digital denture system. The digital denture is an alternative to a traditional denture that is made in a dental laboratory. The digital denture is customized to each patient. A traditional denture is not customized.
Who Is the Suitable Candidate for Digital Denture?
People who require dentures will benefit most from digital denture technology. However, patients who would like to avoid an invasive procedure may find this beneficial as well. Digital dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures because they don’t need to be refitted or adjusted.
How Does Digital Denture Work?
Digital denture uses CAD/CAM technology to design and fabricate a digitally planned, custom-fitted denture. The digital denture is created from a 3D scan of the patient’s gums and jaw, which is used to create a digital map of the upper and lower jaw. This is then used to create the denture base. The denture is fabricated by a milling machine, typically from a high-quality acrylic material.
Benefits of Digital Dentures
Digital dentures are more comfortable and fit better than traditional dentures. Digital dentures are designed using computer technology, which is used to create precise measurements. When digital dentures are made, the fit is more natural and more comfortable for the wearer. Traditional dentures, on the other hand, are molded to fit the patient’s gum line. Our patients love being able to chew and speak without worrying about their dentures becoming loose. The precision fit of digital dentures means our patients don’t have to deal with messy pastes or pastes that taste bad.
Digital dentures are customized to fit your mouth. They are made using CAD/CAM technology, which starts with a digital impression of your mouth. This technology uses advanced software and milling technology to create a denture that is uniquely yours.
Is Digital Denture Right for Me?
Digital dentures provide plenty of benefits, but sometimes they may not be the right choice. To determine whether digital dentures are right for you, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Digital dentures are often best for patients who are missing some of their natural teeth but still have healthy gums and jawbones.
