The milling of the final denture is done by milling a tissue-colored denture base or vestibular. Then the dental arch is milled in the chosen tooth shade. The teeth are cured into the tissue material. A final fine milling process is done with the bonded white and pink material together to create a close fit. The denture is then finished and polished.
It is important to note, since the material being milled is already cured/static, there is no deforming or warping of the denture over time, thus allowing the denture to be made with an ideal fit and adaptation of the palate. We have created cases without the post palatal seal, just because the dentures fit so well they did not need it.
This is considered to be a premium product since the cost is comparable to that of a premium denture, but with fewer visits.
The use of a digitally designed and milled denture using Ivoclar's digital denture workflows can streamline the process of complete denture fabrication for patients. While there are multiple workflows available for removable dentures, the digital denture process allows clinicians to individualize treatments for their patients that significantly improve predictability, lower costs and help create a more pleasant experience for those patients who undergo removable procedures. Contact the removable team at Burbank Dental Lab to find out how digital protocols can significantly impact the way you do dentistry.
