With the demand for complete denture on the rise and the dwindling number of denture technicians, it has become more imperative than ever for all dental technicians to have a basic understanding of how to fabricate quality removable prosthetics. The increase of implant over dentures is just another factor in the importance of having at least a fundamental understanding of fabricating traditional denture work. In order to be a competent denture technician it does not only mean understanding the basics at the bench but also what it means to work in cohesion with your clinicians. The goal of this course is to touch base on all steps involved in fabricating a functional and aesthetic complete denture while reducing chair time for the clinician. The course will include but not limited to the following:

  • Fabrication of proper custom tray
  •  Model analysis
  • Occlusal rims
  •  Articulation with the absence of a facebow
  • Choosing proper tooth molds and occlusal schemes
  • Setting of teeth in a timely fashion
  • Wax characterization
  • Processing
  • Selective grinding
  • Finishing and polishing

Run Time: 46 Minutes
