Over the last few years, it has been possible to use Computer-Aided-Design systems (CAD) in dental medicine. Various 3D technological systems such as Kavo PrepAssistantR have been used in fixed prosthodontics as auxiliary to evaluate pre-clinical preparations and to confer more objectivity. The main aim of this study is to use the Kavo PrepAssistantR as an alternative system to help the evaluation of occlusal rest seats in removable prosthodontics. Seventy-six undergraduate students from the Faculty of Dental Medicine of Oporto University were selected to prepare two occlusal rest seats in KavoR teeth 45 and 46 which were classified by 3 evaluators independently and measured in Kavo PrepAssistant R.The results obtained from distinct evaluators were considerably different. This method can help the teachers to achieve a more fair assessment since the evaluation becomes less subjective. The Kavo PrepAssistantR system may be a useful tool in removable prosthodontic.
