Combined Prosthesis

The modern form of removable dentures is represented by the combined prosthesis. This type of rehabilitation is linked to a rehabilitation prosthesis that can be fixed on implants or on natural teeth. This type of combination of fixed prosthesis and removable prosthesis can be anchored to existing or new teeth, crowns, bridges or implants. It is a removable prosthesis, however fixed and stabilized thanks to some hidden anchoring devices that make it aesthetically pleasing, stable and functional. Depending on the rehabilitation specific situation, this can be a very valid solution both from an aesthetic and a functional points of view.

My clinical cases

Mobile superior prosthesis and inferior prostesis anchored to impants
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to have a new smile and start eating properly again, after years of incongruous and aesthetically unacceptable mobile prostheses both on the upper and lower jaws.

Treatment and results

In order to fulfill the aesthetic and functional demands of the patient we built a new stable upper prosthesis that could give comfort to the patient. Then, we rehabilitated the inferior and  inserted implants in the anterior region of the jaw. We created a very light titanium bar so as to withstand the masticatory load of the prosthesis and anchored the prosthesis to the implants.

Creation of ceramic crowns for mobile prosthesis support
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to improve his smile and have a more stable and comfortable prosthesis in order to return to having a normal social life.

Treatment and results

By exploiting the remaining teeth, we managed to create fixed ceramic crowns, which support and give stability to mobile prostheses thanks to a system of stable and resistant anchors and attacks. The removable prosthesis has to be removed only for cleaning and for hygiene maneuvers.
