Abstract

The conventional method of fabricating implant-retained overdentures involves multiple steps and patient visits. However, the duplication of existing complete dentures could decrease the number of visits and increase patient satisfaction. An existing maxillary implant-retained overdenture was replaced for a 78-year-old man; the existing implant-retained overdenture and his face were scanned at the first visit. The scanned intaglio image was inverted to obtain a virtual maxillary cast and used to fabricate the metal framework of the replacement implant-retained overdenture. Prefabricated artificial teeth were arranged on a 3-dimensional trial denture created from the scan data of the existing implant-retained overdenture. The replacement implant-retained overdenture was fabricated on the metal framework by using the injection molding technique. By using these digital techniques, a stable and esthetic implant-retained overdenture was delivered in 2 visits.
