This course features the clinical process, step by step, for expedited construction of complete dentures. Based on sound principles, these same clinical steps are followed for economy dentures and for premium dentures. Recommendations for delegation of simple lab procedures to office staff are provided as well as patient communication tips. From impressioning to recording of maxillo-mandibular relations, to verification of phonetics and esthetics and finally, delivery, this presentation simplifies the complete denture sequence for general dentists.
