The digitally replicated denture technique: A case report

PubMed.gov | September 16, 2018

Technology has quickly integrated into all aspects of clinical dentistry,
and complete dentures are no longer an exception. The process for
incorporating computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing
(CAD/CAM) into the sequence of complete dentures has been rapidly
developing over the last several years. The first mention in the dental
literature was in 1994, with a group in Japan scanning impressions
and fabricating a denture with rapid prototyping (RP).1 There were
several articles published periodically over the next several years, as
interest in CAD/CAM grew.2 A “proof-of-concept” article by Goodacre
et al in 2012 seemed to mark the beginning of the digital denture
revolution, as laboratories were finding practical ways to incorporate
this into clinical practice.3
