Searching for other materials or other fabrication technologies has been one of the goals to help to re-innovate the fabrication of complete dentures , which would greatly influence completely edentulous Patient satisfaction. The introduction of rapid prototyping (RP)Stereo lithography (SLA) technology has many advantage as high accuracy, high mechanical strength, smooth surface finish with close tolerance and fine details printing, but it has some limitation as it is only limited Material, in addition to the high material and equipment cost.
SLA has been used in dental fields like maxillofacial prosthesis , wax pattern fabrication for crown bridge , removable partial denture 19, but still complete denture was reported in a very few reports indicating that RP is not yet successfully applied in Complete denture manufacturing 19-21A randomised trial is therefore needed to asses accurately wether the introduction of rapid prototyping in complete denture fabrication is successful or not in comparison to the conventional technique and to discover the possible challenges in this recent technique and the ways to overcome it.
Retention of complete dentures and patient satisfaction has been reported in many studies22-26. Patients have showed a higher satisfaction, as retention of both maxillary and mandibular complete dentures increased.

Sham Comparator: Rapid prototyping Denture base
Complete Denture Using Rapid Prototyping method for fabrication of the complete denture depending on
Device: Rapid prototyping Denture base
The introduction of rapid prototyping (RP)Stereo lithography (SLA) technology, which mainly depends on addition of layers of materials which would be polymerized using a light curing unit. It consists of a bath of photo polymerized liquid and ultraviolet unit for curing these layers, that would bond to each other till forming the full object. SLA has many advantage as high accuracy, high mechanical strength, smooth surface finish with close tolerance and fine details printing, but it has some limitation as it is only limited Material, in addition to the high material and equipment cost.
Sham Comparator: Heat Cured Conventional Complete Denture
Complete Denture using heat cured Denture base using flasking and deflasking method
Device: Heat Cured Conventional Complete Denture
it is the main treatment for most of completely edentoulous Cases
- Patient Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 month ]Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire using likert scale five points represent degree of satisfaction and compare the result to each other
- Retention [ Time Frame: 3 month ]resistance to tissue away movement using digital force meter and recording the average of 10 reading in one time and compare the results of the two denture
