Abstract

New treatment concepts for complete denture fabrication, including digital components, may increase the predictability of the treatment outcome. The reduced number of appointments, improved biocompatibility of the materials, opportunity to copy the outline of existing dentures, possibility of a virtual evaluation, and reduction of costs have changed the treatment workflow considerably. This becomes even more important against the background of an aging population. The innovative approach presented describes the combination of an impression-occlusal rim with a 3-dimesional face scan that allows a virtual evaluation, which might complement or even replace the traditional evaluation of a conventional tooth arrangement.
