Copy Denture Technique

If you have a patient that likes there dentures but needs a duplicate set due to wear, or just need a second set. Here is a tried and tested method.

1. Take a mould of excisting dentures using lab putty or alginate. Do this in 2 stages. First, take mould of the fit, let material set, make locating grooves. Vaseline edges of first mould. Take mould of the teeth side extending to the first mould and picking up into locating grooves making sure enough material is used. Seperate the moulds and remove Denture. Check accuracy of moulds. Repeat if F/F is needed or take an impression of opposing arch. Take squash bite Take shade of Denture teeth.
