One of the most critical causes in determining the clinical outcomes of dental prostheses is the validity of models. However, studies that evaluated validity of digital models are few. The objectives of this study were to evaluate validity of edentulous digital models for full denture fabrication. Twenty stone models (edentulous model) were manufactured and scanned by dental blue light emitting diode scanner. Twenty digital models were manufactured. Six linear distances (inter-canine distance, inter-molar distance, two dental arch lengths (right, left), two diagonal of dental arch lengths (right, left) were measured for validity evaluation. The measurements of distances of stone models were used by digital vernier caliper and digital models were used by computer program. The meandeviations values of six distances were calculated. The means were compared by the Mann Whitney U test (). All statistical analysis were performed using IBM SPSS Statistics ver. 20.0. Although digital models were smaller than stone models in six distances, there were no significant differences (p>0.05) and non exceeded the clinical acceptable range. The edentulous digital models for full denture fabrication can be considered clinically acceptable.
