Immediate dentures based on digital impressions and digital workflow

After consulting with our team, a patient suffering from parodontitis over a period of years, decided she wanted a full denture.

  • Treatment provider: Germen Versteeg
  • Solutions used: 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner, 3Shape Dental System software, 3Shape Smile Design
  • Due the patient’s anxiety around treatment, the full extraction of the lower and upper teeth with an immediate placement of the dentures was planned for one session.


  • Intraoral scanning. The patient’s lower and upper jaw as well as bite registration are IO scanned.
  • Smile Design. To match the characteristic set-up of the patient’s own teeth, we take portrait images of her face in a smile position. We also use the photo as an extra reference in 3Shape Smile Design.
  • Digital denture design. An important benefit of working digitally is that we can use the tested design in a pre-preparation scan to create the exact same set up for her immediate denture.
  • Benefit of a full arched denture. Versteeg sees several benefits to milling full arch dentures: strength, time efficiency, esthetics, and better occlusion. Previous cases were made with milled bases and stock teeth, but recent updates to materials and software make full arch dentures possible and preferred.
