Dandy provides scanning best practices, tips, and tricks to help you be confident scanning edentulous areas for partial denture cases. For edentulous scanning, we recommend:
Ensuring those areas are as dry as possible. Use any retraction tools that can help make the edentulous areas easier to reach. Take your time and rotate the scanner from the buccal to the lingual side smoothly and slowly (do not just rush over the occlusal surface as this will not capture enough tissue coverage).
Dandy’s partials are either digitally milled (Titanium/Acetal) or hand made/cast (Acrylic/Flexible/Chrome-Cobalt)
Yes – Dandy will digitally (or physically) remove the teeth and build the partial with the assumption that those teeth are missing.
Partial denture scanning can be quite difficult when capturing the patient’s edentulous areas, especially around the lower arch posteriors. When scanning the more difficult to reach areas in the patient’s mouth, you should:
- Ensure those areas are as dry as possible
- Use any retraction tools that can help make the edentulous areas easier to reach
- Take your time and rotate the scanner from the buccal to the lingual side smoothly and slowly (do not just rush over the occlusal surface as this will not capture enough tissue coverage.
