Digital Denture Duplication

Medit i500 was used to scan and duplicated a fractured denture. It was originally scanned in the patient’s mouth to capture the opposing and the bite and then submitted to the lab for fabrication

In this video we review with the instant replay feature of the medit i500 on how to scan a denture and not introduce double images or errors in the model.  We first scan the occlusale surfaces of the denture intra-orally (this does not really matter as the software doesn’t know any differently), we then image the opposing, and then bite.  We then remove the relined upper broken denture and continue the imaging to capture the intaglio

The final denture was hard relined and delivered to patient with minimal adjustments.
