Abstract

To simulate the current oral status of patients, including maxillofacial defects, the digital method described uses a method based on multisource data. These include data recorded from scans made with and without wearing an obturator and data obtained by scanning the surgical or interim obturator. This method eliminates the need for preliminary impressions and complex border-molding steps during the process of creating a definitive obturator, thereby greatly simplifying the fabrication process.
