  • Mouth, Edentulous


This investigation is undertaken to evaluate the workflow and concomitant products to create full dentures by using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology, i.e. Digital Light Processing™ Technology (Carbon 3D) to restore fully edentulous jaws. The assessment includes quality of materials provided by Dentsply Sirona Lab by using printers for Additive Manufacturing (M2 series, Carbon 3D 1089 Mills Way, Redwood City, CA 94063). This assessment will be done by clinical review of the AM dentures on fit and quality. In addition, the trial includes a patient survey to assess current dentures and the new AM dentures with a subjective comparison of both.
