Digital Dentures: The Future of Edentulous Intraoral Scanning

For centuries, dentures have been the go-to solution for patients with missing teeth. However, the process of getting dentures has always been a lengthy and often uncomfortable one. But with advances in technology, the world of dentistry is rapidly changing. One of the most exciting developments in recent years is the rise of digital dentures.

Digital dentures are created using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software. This technology allows for a much more precise and accurate fit, reducing the need for multiple adjustments and ensuring a more comfortable and functional final product.

3Shape, a leader in digital dentistry solutions, has recently released an ebook on Digital Dentures for Edentulous Intraoral Scanning. This ebook explores the benefits of digital dentures, including:

  1. Faster turnaround time With traditional dentures, the process can take weeks or even months to complete. With digital dentures, the turnaround time is significantly reduced. This means patients can get their dentures sooner, reducing the amount of time they have to live without teeth.
  2. Increased accuracy Digital dentures are created using intraoral scanning technology, which provides an incredibly accurate representation of the patient’s mouth. This ensures a perfect fit and eliminates the need for manual adjustments.
  3. Improved patient experience With traditional dentures, patients often have to endure multiple appointments and uncomfortable impressions. Digital dentures eliminate much of this discomfort, making the process much more pleasant for the patient.
  4. Better aesthetics Digital dentures allow for more precise and accurate shaping, resulting in a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This is especially important for patients who may have concerns about the appearance of their dentures.

Overall, digital dentures are a significant advancement in the world of dentistry. They provide a more efficient, accurate, and comfortable solution for patients with missing teeth.
