Intraoral scanning with CS 3600® (Carestream Dental, Atlanta, GE, USA), .STL files. The intraoral scan is performed with the patient wearing the copy of the preexisting denture, printed in 3D, properly discarded and opened in the scanbody area. The presence of this copy is essential to give the correct references for the vertical dimension of occlusion. (a) Master model with mucosal collars, antagonist, and copy of the preexisting denture opened in the anterior area; (b) master model with mucosal collars, antagonist, copy of the preexisting denture opened in the anterior area, and scanbodies; (c) copy of the preexisting denture and antagonist arch; (d) master model with mucosal collars and antagonist in the correct spatial relationship; (e) master model with mucous collars and scanbodies; (f) master model with mucosal collars, scanbodies, and antagonist in the correct spatial relationship.
