Next Level Dentures: From a Dentist and a Lab Guy’s Perspective


Course Description:

Presented in tandem by Dr Wendy Clark and Jimmy Stegall, this presentation is ideal for both Clinicians and technicians who want to incorporate digital dentures into their workflows, as attendees will see directly how the cases are accomplished from both perspectives. For decades, very little changed with complete denture workflows, but over the last ten years we have started to see technology transform the status quo. The adoption of digital denture workflows continues to see exponential growth, and this program is designed to help attendees understand how to integrate into their practice and laboratory! As these workflows evolve to incorporate digital dentistry, clinicians can benefit from interweaving components of both conventional and digital denture processes. This course will walk through the basics of various digital denture workflows for immediate, duplicate, reference, and conventional complete dentures. Systematic clinical guidelines and communication methods will be presented that make chairside steps easier, and results more predictable for the patient, clinician, and technician. The program will also highlight the latest in digital denture materials and fabrication methods are providing higher strength, better fit, scalability, and predictable results.

At the completion of this course participants will understand:

  • Clinical guidelines for immediate, reference, & conventional digital dentures
  • Providing the best data (records) for predictable
  • How communication has improved for both dentist & lab through the digital tools
  • The latest updates to the Lucitone Digital Print process & materials
  • How digital tooth libraries provide superior esthetics with printed tooth workflows
  • Using technology to accomplish 3-appointment dentures
