CAD/CAM-Fabricated Nonmetal Clasp Denture: In Vitro Pilot Study
Takahashi, Yutaka / Hamanaka, Ippei / Isshi, Kota
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to fabricate a prototype nonmetal clasp denture using computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology.
Materials and Methods: A partially edentulous mandibular working cast was scanned using an optical scanner. A sectional denture separated by two parts was designed on the scanned cast. These parts were milled and combined, and adhered using an adhesive luting agent.
Results: The completed denture was delivered on the working cast and provided an excellent level of fitness.
Conclusion: A prototype nonmetal clasp denture could be fabricated using CAD/CAM technology.
