The digital denture replication method (DRM): a simplified method to fabricate a complete removable prosthesis
Renne, Walter / Revell, Griffin / Teich, Sorin
The proposed denture replication method shows a predictable workflow for fabricating complete dentures for patients with existing dentures. The replication technique is a method of fabricating new removable complete dentures utilizing the existing prosthesis as the foundation for a new denture. The technique has some advantages such as allowing the clinician to copy the tooth shape and contours of the existing prosthesis while modifying borders and intaglio surfaces. The denture replication method links proven methods of obtaining functional impressions using soft reline materials to a straightforward digital process. Utilizing the new "copy-denture" feature in the 3Shape software, it is possible to significantly reduce the number of appointments and laboratory labor involved in denture fabrication. The denture replication method protocol is increasing efficiency by reducing the amount of clinical procedures and visits, resulting in decreased treatment time and costs while providing a satisfactory clinical solution.
