Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND PROCESS FOR DUPLICATION OF DENTURES
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DUPLICATION DE PROTHÈSES DENTAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and processes for the duplication of dentures from existing dentures. The interior and exterior of the dentures are scanned and a best fit procedure is used to create a fully digitized denture. The denture teeth are selected from a library that is the closest fit to the original denture teeth. The library teeth are offset a preset distance to compensate for the best fit. The teeth are then subtracted from the digitized denture. The margins of the denture are then cleaned after subtracting the teeth. The denture base is then ready for manufacturing. The teeth are then installed onto the denture base and provided to the patient.

Cette invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de duplication de prothèses dentaires à partir de prothèses dentaires existantes. L'intérieur et l'extérieur des prothèses dentaires sont numérisés et une procédure d'ajustement optimal est utilisée pour créer une prothèse dentaire complètement numérisée. Les dents de la prothèse dentaire sont choisies dans une banque qui représente l'ajustement optimal par rapport aux dents de la prothèse dentaire originale. Les dents de la banque sont décalées d'une distance prédéfinie pour compenser l'ajustement optimal. Les dents sont ensuite soustraites de la prothèse dentaire numérisée. Les marges de la prothèse dentaire sont ensuite effacées après soustraction des dents. La base de la prothèse dentaire est alors prête pour la fabrication. Les dents sont ensuite installées sur la base de la prothèse dentaire et le patient est équipé.
