Full Dentures: Your Challenge. Your Workflow.


Even with extensive expertise, full dentures often still pose a major challenge. Our common goal is to create a successful outcome so the patient leaves the dental practice with a satisfied smile.

The jury of the 13th Candulor KunstZahnWerk 2023 competition would like to take a look at your solution and evaluate it along with your workflow in the supreme discipline of "Full dentures". Use your knowledge and experience to produce a successful full denture restoration and pick up the next KunstZahnWerk Award!

The task
The aim is to produce a mucosa-supported full maxillary and mandibular denture based on a detailed model analysis as well as detailed documentation of your workflow. The pronounced atrophy of the mandible makes an age-appropriate, natural-looking solution a real challenge. An additional feature: You can choose between the dynamic tooth-to-tooth and the tooth-to-two-tooth occlusion concepts.

The procedure
After the binding registration, Candulor will send you detailed information on the complete patient case, which will make the solution easier, as well as the matching maxilla and mandible plaster casts, the physiognomic bite index, the score sheet and the denture teeth. The finished dentures must be submitted exclusively in a CANDULOR articulator or a partially or fully adjustable articulator.

Additional opportunity
You can photograph, film and/or write. The KZW documentation is an important centerpiece of the competition and will also receive awards. In other words, it pays to document your work. The best documentations will be published in various professional journals.

The jury
Face this jury of prosthetics experts and practitioners.

  • Peter Lerch, prosthodontist and author, Switzerland
  • Steffen Rohrbach, dental technician and SSOP Teacher, USA
  • Steven de Maesschalck, dental technician, Belgium
