This option skips the wax rim and try-in stages.  This is a good option for cases where the occlusion is easily distinguishable and stable, typically established in patients who are missing fewer than 5 teeth. 

Wax Rims 

Wax rims are important in establishing the occlusal relationship of the jaws. In cases where there are few remaining teeth, wax rims will help ensure the case is set properly for function and aesthetics.


Try-in’s can be done as framework only or with the teeth set in wax. This is a good option for cases involving anterior teeth. It is important to note that we do not offer digital wax ups for partials as they are handmade.

Rx Components 

Digital Extraction 

Utilizing our simple user-interface. Select the teeth that will be going on the partial as well as those sites where a tooth will be extracted. 


Teeth used for partial cases come in a single shade. We are unable to stain or custom match tooth shades. 

Replacement of an existing partial 

If a patient has an existing partial that they would like  to use as a template for designing the new appliance,  it is important to select this box. We ask that photos  or scans of the existing partial get uploaded to the  portal chat. We will use the photos to copy design and  aesthetics. Please do not send in any of the patient’s  existing partials as Dandy is not responsible if these  are lost.

What scans are needed for Partials? 

  • Full Upper Arch with Full Palatal Coverage
    • This is required so that we can properly create a  framework or horseshoe palate for partial orders.  Even if the upper is an opposing, please get in the habit of scanning the full palate.
  • Full Lower Arch
    • This is needed to achieve retention.
  • Bite Scan
    • Used to aid in articulation.

Tips for better scans 

Moisture Control Cheek and lip retraction 

Keep the area dry before and during scanning. 

Try using active suction or compressed air -  one person can scan while another can work  to keep the area dry 

Saliva is the leading cause for voids and  distortions 

Cheek and lip retraction 

Use tools around the office to your advantage.  Cheek retractors help greatly in keeping the cheek  away from the hard to get vestibule areas 

Gum tissue scanning 

Tilt the scanner on both sides of the patient’s arch 

Do not just hover directly over the occlusal  surface - try different angles 

Slow down when scanning the posterior teeth -  scanning too quickly leads to voids

Before scan submission and dismissing the  patient, check the following: 

Are all surfaces of the posterior teeth captured? 

Are both of the retromolar pads captured? 

Are there any distortions, holes, or layering? 

Is the entire palate captured? 

Examples of Good Scans

  1. Captures vestibule areas - lingual and buccal.                                                       
  2. Captures at least 5 mm of the lingual and buccal gum tissue.                           
  3. Captures the full palate.                                                                                   
  4. Captures both retromolar pads.                                                                         

Examples of Incomplete Scans 

  1. Contain voids.                                                                                                     
  2. Contain layering.                                                                                               
  3. Contain holes.                                                                                                             
  4. Contain distortions.
