Recently computer-aided technology has been widely used in dentistry. DENTCA CAD/CAM denture system (DENTCA Inc.), one of CAD/CAM systems for fabricating complete denture, tries to collect and store all of a patient`s information at the first visit. This system aims to deliver denture at the second visit through utilizing the CAD/CAM software to access the stored data for designing the 3D denture model. The 3 dimensional (3D) denture will then be fabricated with 3D printer. Many case reports have evaluated clinical application of CAD/CAM system for fabricating complete dentures. This case report is about fabricating of complete dentures using DENTCA system and conventional method in same patient. With two cases, usefulness and limitation of DENTCA system could be evaluated.
