Course Overview:
Dr. Wagner will demonstrate a cutting edge digital clinical workflow designed to produce high-quality complete removable dentures in three, thirty-minute appointments. Based on the solid time-tested principles of the past, this technique takes denture fabrication solidly into the 21st century. A unique digital guide is utilized chair-side by the clinician to fit bases, position the anterior teeth, record jaw relations, evaluate esthetics and gain patient approval. Following fabrication by the lab, high-quality digital dentures are delivered to the patient on the third clinical appointment.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the skills and techniques required to diagnose and treat the edentulous patient
  • Organize and implement a simplified but high-quality denture service in a contemporary dental practice
  • Understand the procedures required to fabricate a high-quality complete removable denture in three clinical appointments
  • Understand the choices for contemporary implant-based dentures in 2019
