The technologies for full dentures realization are almost the same for more than fifty years despite their being associated with many risks of error. In recent years, digital technologies have been increasingly used in dental practice, due to the many advantages it offers. The CAD / CAM technologies, are moving constantly in new directions, to provide exciting, innovative products and systems, with the highest quality standards. Thanks to CAD/CAM technologies, perfect clinical restorations can be achieved, with no secondary reactions and excellent esthetic appearance, through a digital cooperation between dentists and dental laboratories. CAD/CAM technology allows the realization of a well-fitting, aesthetic, and durable prosthetic appliances.
Conventional technologies also have a number of advantages and disadvantages that must be known, and computerized methods have not only advantages but also disadvantages. We cannot notice that there is an ideal technology, but that we can choose, knowingly, the most appropriate method for each clinical case.
