Combined prosthetics can be considered as an evolution of conventional partial dentures. It is a combination between fixed and removable structures, intended to restore the oral main functions: the aesthetics, chewing, phonetic, prevention of inclination, migration, extrusion or rotation of remaining teeth, weakened teeth stabilization and muscular balance from the face.
The combination between fixed elements and removable parts opens new horizon, improving the aesthetic, preventive and functional aspects of the rehabilitation. That for the laboratory procedures requires greater precision and ability from the technician. It is determinant for this kind of rehabilitation to have adequate preparations. Lingual compensating spaces for the shoulders and proximal spaces for the channels and interlocks are required.
In this book, through the chapters, milling techniques will be presented, telescopic and conometric crowns, overdentures, as well as an isolated study of the materials and equipment involved in the laboratory procedures, like burs, milling unit, etc…
3D software has been used, facilitating the application of textures to the models previously carried through. A color code, referring to the functions, facilitates the understanding of the millings components, improving the didactic aspect of this book.
