A new technique for making complete denture in a reduced number of clinical sessions maintaining high quality standards is described. This method has been named SET, acronymic for simplified edentulous treatment. SET is a flexible method that can be performed in one, or more sittings, to meet the patient’s requirements and/or according to the dentist’s preference. All the traditional principles in making complete denture are respected, but new and innovative materials have been designed, built, tested and set up: the multilayer impression tray (MIT) and the bone resorption compensating curve (BRCC). In the first sitting the clinician can obtain, without the need of a dental laboratory, all the clinical information necessary for processing and delivering the denture.
