COMPLETE DENTURE TRY-IN
Complete dentures are usually inspected in the mouth after the denture teeth
have been set in wax. This provides an opportunity to verify the occlusion and visualize
the appearance of the finished denture before final processing. Changes needed in the
denture tooth arrangement can be made at this time. Figure 5-14 depicts instruments
and materials used for complete denture try-in.
