Steps of creation
Regardless of the type of the denture the steps of creation are similar. At first, an impression is taken of both dental arches that help the lab technician to create their own impression tray for the next appointment.
With the help of this, an even more precise impression can be taken and this way the denture will become more stable.
During the same appointment the setting of the vertical dimension of occlusion in done. This is important as the place of the missing teeth are filled with wax supporting the cheeks and lips removing the wrinkles of the sunken cheeks. In the next phase, the teeth put into the wax are tried. Then their size, shape and position still can be changed if the patient requires it.
Only if it meets all the requirements will the lab technician create the final denture.
