Title: The combination of strategic factors for a successful prosthetic rehabilitation



A successful prosthetic rehabilitation depends on the combination of several strategic factors such as the evaluation of a correct treatment plan, the selection of the most appropriate ceramic material, the application of innovative clinical procedures and the use of digital tools. 

A precise preoperative esthetic and functional analysis, as well as the accurate data transmission to the dental laboratory, can significantly affect the outcome of the prosthetic rehabilitation.  Nowadays the clinician can count on the support of specific apps - like GETApp - that efficiently guide him/her throughout all the steps of the treatment plan.

Selecting the ceramic material with the dental ceramist is also a fundamental phase in the management of complex rehabilitation cases. Thanks to the use of metal-free ceramic materials it is possible to obtain excellent esthetic results while reducing the need to remove sound tooth structure, even in full-mouth rehabilitations. 

By following an innovative operative protocol called MIPP (Minimally Invasive Prosthetic Procedures) the dentist can face highly compromised clinical situations with a minimally invasive approach. As a result of the alteration of the of the vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) it is possible to take advantage of the newly created space between the two arches with the effect of minimizing the invasiveness of the treatment when using veneers, full-veneers, buccal-occlusal veneers and table tops, even with very reduced ceramic thickness. Thanks to the MIPP it is possible to re-establish an ideal occlusal relationship and to avoid additional endodontic or surgical steps that were traditionally necessary in order to improve the retention of the restorations.  The maintenance of a maximum amount of enamel and the use of the appropriate bonding technique guarantee a remarkable resistance and a long-lasting result of the prosthetic rehabilitation.
