Digital Immediate Complete Denture for a Patient with Rhabdomyosarcoma: A Clinical Report


Now online in the Journal of Prosthodontics, a clinical report of a digital workflow to fabricate a printed maxillary immediate complete denture for a patient with a severely compromised maxilla.

The conventional approach to fabricate an immediate complete denture is a lengthy process that takes multiple clinical and laboratory steps. In the case described, a 16-year-old patient presented for treatment of malocclusion and partial edentulism. An intraoral scanner was utilized to reconstruct the 3D image of the jaws at the desirable vertical dimension of occlusion. With this fully digital approach it is possible to finish both the clinical and laboratory steps of complete denture fabrication within one day if needed.
