Concept and development of a computerized positioning of prosthetic teeth for complete dentures

Busch M, Kordass B.

To date, CAD/CAM technology has made no noteworthy inroads into removable dentures. We want to present a new area of application for this in our study. Models of the maxilla and edentulous mandible were 3D scanned. The software detects and automatically reconstructs the reference structures that are anatomically important for the set-up of artificial teeth, such as the alveolar ridge centerlines and the interalveolar relations between the alveolar ridges. In a further step, the occlusal plane is semiautomatically defined and the front dental arch is designed. After these design features have been determined, artificial teeth are selected from a database and set up automatically. The dental technician can assess the esthetics and function of the suggested dental set-up on the computer screen and make slight corrections if necessary. Summarizing: The interplay of hardware and software components within on integrated solution including conversion of the virtual into a real positioning of prosthetic teeth is presented.
