The Clinical Benefits of 3D Printed Dentures

Join us for an informative symposium featuring Dr. Valerie McMillan and Jamie Stover, CDT from Carbon on Lucitone Digital Print Dentures.

Traditionally fabricating dentures requires many clinical appointments going back and forth with skilled removable technicians who perform all fabrication steps by hand, making it a time consuming, labor intensive and often inaccurate process. Digital dentures have been available for a few years in both milled and 3D printed options, but the Lucitone Digital Print denture is the first FDA cleared high impact printable resin and process that combines the strength of Lucitone 199 and IPN Portrait-inspired denture teeth for an incredibly strong and highly esthetic digital denture. Please join us for an in-depth look at the technology, materials, and workflow that are transforming our industry and the many associated benefits Lucitone Digital Print dentures provide for your practice and your patients.

Course objectives:

  • Learn about the material characteristics of the Lucitone Digital Print (LDP) denture.
  • Learn about Carbon and its game-changing technology.
  • Learn the differences between LDP and milled/1st generation printed dentures.
  • Learn the benefits of the LDP denture for patients.

Biography: Dr. McMillan is a private practice prosthodontist with a passion for dentures. Once called the “Denture Queen” by her prosthodontics co-residents, the name stuck, and her love for removable prosthodontics grew with time. Dr. McMillan presents a systematic approach to digital denture treatment which she has been refining since she switched to all-digital denture fabrication in 2015. Dr. McMillan’s practice is located in Dayton, Ohio, her hometown. She owns a practice limited to prosthodontics. Since 2014 Dr. McMillan has fabricated free dentures for patients in her community during National Prosthodontics Awareness Week (NPAW). Many volunteer lab technicians, students, and prosthodontists helped prepare up to 20 dentures in a single week. Now that dentures are made digitally her focus has turned to education during the awareness week. Dr. McMillan’s prosthodontics training and Master of Science in Dentistry was completed at The Ohio State University in 2009. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at The Ohio State University in 2006. Her undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Science in Biology, also from The Ohio State University, 2002. Currently, she is a member of the American College of Prosthodontics, American Dental Association, and serves on the board of directors for the Dayton Dental Society.
