Abstract

Conventional methods used for fabricating hollow obturator prostheses have numerous problems. The workflow presented in this article integrates 3D digital technologies into a functional protocol, enabling the fabrication of single-piece hollow prostheses with no joints by using an optical 3D scanner and a laminating molding device.
