Laboratory Procedures for Complete Dentures


Effective communication between dentists and dental technicians is of utmost importance for fabrication of complete dentures.  It is usually not possible to correct the other’s mistake which can be thwarted by improving communication between the parties.

 The presentation will focus on handling of impressions and stone casts , features of bite rims , teeth arrangements and articulation , flasking procedures , remounting of the stone casts to the articulator for final occlusal adjustments , and finally polishing procedures.
