Hands-On Workshop by AvaDent
Digital Dentures for Prosthodontists
Steve Wagner, DDS, FACP

Historically, complete denture therapy has provided clinically acceptable results, however, advances in digital technology have provided new treatment fabrication methods and restorative choices. In this fast-paced workshop, you will learn the 7 key essential ingredients to the science behind the success of digitally fabricated dentures and several fabrication methods to achieve it. The most advanced design software and how to easily deploy it in a virtual environment will be demonstrated. You will learn tooth setup, occlusal design, and be able to evaluate the digital previews and adjust or customize teeth as needed.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to explain the fundamentals of digitally fabricated dentures, understand the digital preview, troubleshoot the bio-functional trial denture, move teeth in a virtual environment, and experience reference denture and Wagner techniques of denture fabrication.
