No-prep veneers: advantages and possible disadvantages

13 March 2024

Nowadays, the growing aesthetic demand from patients and the diffusion of biological concepts, such as minimally invasive property and biomimicry, have increasingly popularised the use of minimally invasive aesthetic-functional rehabilitation solutions, such as dental veneers. (1-5) Dental veneers today are indicated for the treatment of diverse problems such as discolouration, fractures, abrasions, misalignments and shape […]

Bite registration polyvinylsiloxanes in clinical research

14 February 2024

Bite registration precision is an aspect of crucial importance for the fabrication of satisfactory prosthetic restorations (1–3). Of all the materials used for bite registration, elastomers are the latest innovation in the field (2). Characterised by excellent dimensional stability, they are easy to handle and are not felt by patients during the occlusion phase (4). […]

Technical procedures for the fabrication of removable dentures

10 January 2024

A full removable denture is an extremely complex and unique treatment due to the anatomical and functional diversities that characterise completely edentulous patients (1–3). For this reason, this type of rehabilitation has always been a great challenge for both dentists and dental technicians (4,5). Although comprehension and the ability to communicate with the patient are […]

The conventional clinical phases for fabricating fixed prostheses on single implants

12 December 2023

An implant-supported prosthesis procedure consists in the selection, fabrication, positioning and rehabilitation of one or more missing teeth and their associated structures by means of dental implants. (1) More specifically, the fabrication of a fixed prosthesis on a single-tooth implant is referred to as an implant-supported crown. (1) In cases where a single tooth is […]

Clinical procedures for the fabrication of removable dentures

11 December 2023

A full removable denture is one of the most complex and diverse treatments that can be encountered in clinical and technical settings (1–3). The differences between completely edentulous patients, the different types of osteo-mucosal resorption that can occur and the incongruence between the maxillary bones and neuromuscular control make treatment with full removable dentures extremely […]

Fixed prostheses supported by multiple implants: technical procedures for fabrication

14 November 2023

The literature provides ample evidence that the technical procedure for the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by multiple implants are fundamental phases for determining the success of restoration [1–3]. This article therefore analyses the technical procedures inherent to the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by multiple implants, in order to clarify an area that is […]
