Abstract

In edentulous patient, not only mastication and pronunciation but also esthetics are compromised. By restoring an edentulous patient with complete dentures, masticatory function and esthetics can be rehabilitated. The advantages of the dentures using CAD/CAM are that they can be reconstructed ubiquitously with stored data, and the strength and density of CAD/CAM material are clinically acceptable. In this clinical report, interocclusal record was taken in a conventional manner and then two lab processing procedures were performed: conventional method and CAD/CAM method. Two types of processing procedures were compared and evaluated. Fair clinical results were obtained in both ways, satisfying the patient.
