Additively manufactured scan body for transferring a virtual 3-dimensional representation to a digital articulator for completely edentulous patients Academic Article uri icon


  • A technique is described for obtaining a virtual 3-dimensional representation of completely edentulous patients with the virtual definitive casts mounted on the virtual articulator. An additively manufactured intraoral scan body was developed to record the definitive maxillary and mandibular casts and gothic arch interocclusal registration. The intraoral scan body guided the integration of the digital definitive casts and facial scans to obtain the virtual 3-dimensional patient's representation and facilitated the transfer of the definitive casts to the virtual articulator.
