Key points

  • Accurate recording of denture base extensions relative to functional movements of the patient need to be captured
  • New digital impressions taken via intra-oral scanning techniques may make traditional impression-taking techniques obsolete
  • Digital impressions offer advantages in terms of the digital workflow and provide treatment convenience for both patient and clinician
