Vincent Verderosa, CDT
Saturday 8:00a – 9:45a
1.5 hours Scientific credit with appreciation to Zahn Dental
Let’s explore how modern Digital Denture CAD/CAM technology can create time and problem-solving efficiencies. With various options and opportunities, we will show new techniques to eliminate common issues like porosities, acrylic short packs and tooth shift. This lecture will cover the complete processes of creating a digital denture from the design and try-in to the finished product. We will discuss how an open line of communication between the Dentist and Laboratory are critical in creating comfortable and functional denture. We will review three clinical case studies that highlight the flexibility of the digital process.
