Its been fun seeing just what you can scan with CEREC Primescan! If you have tried to scan a denture in Omnicam, you know the frustration! To date, the best way to do a digital denture is to do a border molded impression within the patient’s existing denture, using the teeth of the denture for the buccal bite. In this case, I tried to scan the patient’s edentulous ridge too, but in general you won’t get the borders you wold get with an impression. Call the denture the upper, take the lower and buccal bite, and call the ridge “Gingival Mask”. You may need to use 3 point matching shown below. If you wanted to use the actual gums, I would have your lab match them up, but you will need to at least start the matching process to get an STL.

The final denture was milled in two pieces from Burbank Dental. Fits great, inserted last week and so far no adjustments!!
