3D digital scanning shortens denture-fitting time from days to minutes

Dentures, known as false teeth, are prosthetics constructed to replace missing teeth. Fitting removable dentures is a long and painful process in which a patient has to visit the clinic multiple times so that soft and hard plastic material, resembling silly putty, can be used to take exact measurements of her mouth. Failure to take exact measurements causes discomfort and pain. Now researchers report that this time can be cut way back with the use of 3D digital scanning techniques. —> Read More
