The digital manufacture of complete dentures would greatly simplify the workflow; however, the metal-reinforced complete dentures production method has not been well established. This article describes a technique of fabricating metal-reinforced complete dentures in a milling machine using the geometry guide, a negative impression of the occlusal surface of the metal-reinforced complete denture designed using the computer-aided design software. The geometry guide supports and stabilizes the artificial teeth and metal framework in the correct position in the surrounding resin. Fabrication of metal-reinforced dental prosthesis using the digital technique is possible with this method.
