The immediate dentures fabrication in the analogic manner may be an hight time-consuming and unreliable procedure. The purposes of this article were both to describe a simplified protocol based on a digital workflow used to fabricate a set of immediate dentures and to report patient functional and quality of life data. The digital intraoral scans were recorded and used for dentures design, the teeth arrangement proposed by the software was superimposed to patient frontal photo in order to simulate the aesthetic proposal. The resulted Standard Tessellation Language files were exported to a milling machine for denture fabrication. After immediate denture delivery the remaining lower canine roots were used to retain the prosthesis. In order to evaluate the different effects of the treatment on masticatory efficiency, bite force and health–related quality of life (OHRQoL) data were measured before and after treatment. The patient reported a good adaptation form the delivery, an improvement for all the aspects evaluated after prostheses roots anchorage.
