Dentists may want to consider using an update of a unique complete denture technique that saves total chair time and, therefore, decreases cost. The technique combines appointments two and three, during which time the dentist both makes the master impressions and records the maxillomandibular relationships. In the past, protection of the maxillomandibular relationship records during the subsequent laboratory work was a problem. By applying new, tough, and thin denture base materials to the technique, the dentist will be less likely to distort the maxillomandibular records while boxing and pouring the impressions.
