In recent years, technological advances have facilitated the development of CAD/CAM and decreased the inaccuracies of conventional techniques. However, removable denture design has employed the same traditional procedures for more than 50 years despite the many risks of errors. Digital removable denture design software is relatively new. This article will explain the traditional removable denture device process and compare it with this new digital option, which has proven to be relatively efficient and facilitates the standardization of clinical results.



  • Distinguish different designs and components of removable devices.
  • Determine the sequence of steps in making removable devices.
  • Use CAD/CAM imaging techniques in creating removable devices.
