Look at our patient’s experience!

Sario Meanolo has chosen the dental care of the Platinium Dental Clinic.

For him we have inserted 6 implants in the upper arch! Provisional protection for 3 months. In the second session, the temporary prosthesis will be replaced after 3 months with beautiful high translucency zirconium crowns.
Dental crowns are artificial restorations that stably replace broken, lost or chipped teeth. In this case our patient had serious problems of aesthetics so we, after a thorough visit and an overview, started the treatment as follows:

  • Endodontic treatment for teeth firmly in bone.
  • Gingivectomy for a more visible smile
  • We preserved and modelled, reducing them to stumps, so that they would support twenty-four new beautiful dental crowns.

We made 14 definitive crowns in MONOLITHIC INTEGRAL ZIRCONIUM, improving the patient’s aesthetics, occlusion and thus the functionality of the oral system!

The patient feels more confident with a healthy mouth and a bright smile!

What is a dental prosthesis?

A dental prosthesis is an intraoral (inside the mouth) prosthesis used to restore (reconstruct) intraoral defects such as missing teeth, missing parts of teeth, and missing soft or hard structures of the jaw and palate. Prosthodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on dental prostheses. Such prostheses are used to rehabilitate mastication (chewing), improve aesthetics, and aid speech. A dental prosthesis may be held in place by connecting to teeth or dental implants, by suction, or by being held passively by surrounding muscles. Like other types of prostheses, they can either be fixed permanently or removable; fixed prosthodontics and removable dentures are made in many variations.

Removable Prosthesis

Removable implant-supported dentures (also known as snap-on dentures) are more like traditional dentures—the key difference being that instead of using adhesives to hold the denture in place, dental implants are used. 

Not only are removable implant-supported dentures a better option for patients who don’t have the bone mass to support fixed dentures, they’re also good for patients who are used to wearing traditional dentures and don’t mind having to take their dentures out at the end of the day for cleaning. Some patients may even prefer this option because they find cleaning easier. Removable implant-supported dentures are more affordable as well.

Fixed Prosthesis

The fixed prosthesis is a branch of the dental prosthesis that concerns the replacement and / or restoration of teeth by artificial substitutes that cannot be removed or removed from the mouth. The fixed prosthesis can be cemented, or securely retained in natural teeth, dental roots and / or pillars of dental implants.

This type of prosthesis is composed of:

  • Abutment teeth. They are the ones that support or support the prosthesis. They are usually a natural tooth or an implant.
  • It is the part of the fixed prosthesis that rests on the abutment teeth.
  • They are the artificial teeth that occupy the toothless spaces held by the retainers.
  • They are the points of union of the retainers with the pontic.
