Patient case

VITAPAN PLUS® combined with VITA LINGOFORM®

The patient presents fully edentulous after having posterior extractions first, allowing for bone resorption then lastly having anteriors removed and a short healing period (note lack of lip support) VITAPAN PLUS anteriors have been chosen for this case for their outstanding esthetics. They were combined with VITA LINGOFORM posteriors set in a lingualised occlusion to aid in stability and increased function of the denture and also to ease and speed up setting.
