Digitally produced complete dentures has become a popular option due to their added advantages in fabrication of higher quality of dentures and ease. Additive and subtractive technologies of digital systems are one of the upcoming techniques in dentistry. However, both these technologies have similar steps and time frames for their processes, additive technique holds an upper hand in conservation of milling block materials. The production of maxillary and mandibular complete denture prothesis also involves similar steps and techniques. The aim of this case report is to throw light on the upcoming technology in reducing the time constraints while fabricating complete dentures in geriatric patients.
