Digital Dentures for a perfect result
The reasons for replacing dentures include both tooth wear and fit of your old dentures making them uncomfortable to wear.
Digital dentures are made from scanned impressions which are far less uncomfortable than traditional impressions and the denture is manufactured using computer-aided design and technology to create perfect bespoke dentures that last for up to 8 years.
The dental technician then creates your denture using digital technology utilises the latest manufacturing techniques of either additive 3D printing or subtractive 3D milling. The techniques used for digital dentures compared to traditional dentures are more efficient and less invasive for the patient and can reduce the number of visits required to complete the process.
Digital Dentures Vs Traditional Dentures
Computer technology is used to create a design that allows digital dentures to be made to precise specifications by the latest manufacturing equipment. When compared to traditional dentures, digital dentures offer numerous advantages that reduce processing time and eliminate errors associated with physical impressions and manual denture processing.
How Do Digital Dentures Work?
After the dentist has taken digital impressions of the patient’s mouth, the dental technician uses 3D design software to create and customize dentures virtually. These images are converted to dentures through 3D printing or milling.
After the initial impression you will receive a try-in prototype of your dentures to try for a short time to see how they fit and function in your mouth.
