Download now and learn how the team did:
Scan all the surfaces
Scan of the patient's existing denture, using an intraoral scanner. The STL file gets sent directly to the printer.
Align all scans
Align the pre-preparation and final impression scans, using the 3-point method in 3Shape Dental System.
Produce a cost-effective, milled monoblock try-in copy denture (ProArt CAD try-in/Ivoclar Digital).
Keep the file
Now the doctor has an STL file of the milled denture, so the overdenture can be replicated at any time.
