“The term dental prosthesis refers to an artificial artifact created with the aim of replacing one or more dental elements that have become missing or irreversibly compromised (due to carious processes or traumas) in order to restore the original dentition and keeping in mind, in its design and subsequent construction, the parameters of functionality and aesthetics. ”
Lost teeth can be replaced by artificial substitutes by:
Fixed prosthesis – (crowns or bridges)
Mobile prosthesis – (partial or total)
Combined prosthesis – (the combination of the two types previously described)
Implantology – a surgical operation is used to insert one or more “screws” (generally titanium) in the maxillary or mandibular bone with the aim of restoring the missing teeth or teeth, or to stabilize the mobile prosthesis in the event of total edentulism
Every edentulous situation (lack of teeth) is scrupulously analyzed in our studio by the dentist who, in close collaboration with the dental technician, will design the best rehabilitation solution with maximum respect for the masticatory and aesthetic function without neglecting the real needs of the patient.
Even the choice of materials is made by us, case by case and recommended to the patient, ranging from the fixed prosthesis from classical porcelain to gold, to composite to the most modern integral ceramics (without metal structure / maximum aesthetic yield) and for the prosthetic teeth prosthesis in composite resin with possible aesthetic individualization for a much more natural smile.
Below are a series of explanatory and easy to understand figures on the main types of fixed, mobile, skeletal and implant prostheses.
