Fixed prostheses

Fixed prostheses can be used to reconstruct the anatomical parts of the tooth that have been significantly destroyed by caries, in order to restore its mastication function and preserve the tooth from possible fractures due to its excessive weakness consequent to the caries. For this purpose, single crowns or inlays are mainly used, made from composite material or ceramic.
Fixed prostheses are anchored permanently to some dental elements called pillar elements and cannot be removed by the patient.
When a prosthesis has to replace lost dental elements, bridges are used. Bridges or replacement prostheses are anchored to the natural dental elements close to the areas where teeth are missing.
Fixed prostheses are completed by composite or ceramic veneers, which are “shells” to be applied to front teeth for great aesthetic purposes or for functional restoration.
At the W&F Surgery, all the fixed protheses are personalized, made from materials with very great precision and using CAD/CAM technology.



Inlays

When a tooth has lost a great deal of healthy tissue, a simple filling is no longer sufficient to guarantee a reconstruction that satisfies the patient in terms of duration and aesthetics.
To obviate this problem, the W&F surgery offers inlays as a solution.
After a meticulous preparation of the tooth, an imprint is taken thanks to which the technician can make a piece that perfectly recreates the part of the tooth that has been destroyed. The inlay is made taking advantage of all the latest innovations in the field of dental materials, to be perfectly camouflaged inside the oral cavity. It will be very difficult to distinguish a healthy and untreated tooth from a tooth with an inlay.

Mobile prostheses

A mobile prosthesis is defined as a set of devices which restore to the patient the dental elements lost, but they can be removed by the patient for daily oral hygiene.
These devices include total prostheses, skeletal prostheses and root support prostheses. They become the prostheses of first choice when there are not enough dental elements for crowns or personalized fixed bridges and it is not possible to position dental implants due to a reduced presence of bone. In these cases, the only method to replace the missing teeth is recourse to removable prostheses, which guarantee full stability but, as mentioned, if necessary can be removed by the patient.


Certain aesthetic results

With a resin base and resin or ceramic teeth, a mobile prosthesis is nevertheless a solution of a permanent nature, with often very satisfactory aesthetic results.
As it is highly stable for the support on gums to which it adheres through a suction mechanism, the mobile prosthesis allows adequate mastication and makes good aesthetics and correct phonation possible. Today, the best aesthetic solutions make mobile prosthesis indistinguishable from a natural arch.
The skeletal prosthesis, on the other hand is removable and consists of a metal skeleton and parts which can be made of resin or ceramic, and anchorage on the teeth is through metal hooks or thanks to specific clips.
