Dental prosthesis that can be removed and reinserted in the oral cavity at will by the patient.

Total mobile prosthesis
Overdenture on implants
Skeleton with hooks
Skeletonized with attacks
Temporary nylon prosthesis

Mobile dental prostheses guarantee the rehabilitation of the oral functions of patients suffering from a partial or total lack of dental elements, allowing them to be replaced with artificial elements. These prostheses can be anchored / fixed to other teeth or, in the case of a total lack of elements, placed on the gums.
Some types of prosthetic interventions can be used to correct functional as well as aesthetic anomalies of shape, color or position of natural teeth, however they are not cemented and therefore removable by the patient at will.

Advantages deriving from the mobile dental prosthesis:

Although the mobile prosthesis is more recommended for elderly patients, it has some advantages starting from the fact that the mobile dental prosthesis has lower costs than the fixed one.

Among the advantages in choosing a removable dental prosthesis are:

  • Non-invasive treatment: Removable prostheses do not require any surgery or surgery, but only take an impression of the osteomucosal structure.
  • Immediate disposal: The patient does not have to wait long waiting times for its realization;
  • Greater oral hygiene: Being removable by the patient, these prostheses allow for a thorough cleaning of the artificial teeth and their gums, avoiding possible inflammation.

In our dental centers we use the types of removable prostheses that we list below.


It is the classic “denture”, suitable for those who have a complete lack of teeth, therefore its function allows you to restore a total dentition made of resin, composite or ceramic as if it were the natural one. The shape of the gums and the palate on which the mobile prosthesis rests is detected by taking impressions with impression materials or through the innovative digital sensor Cerec System, this will allow the prosthesis to remain fixed to the edentulous arches thanks to a suction effect. adhering perfectly to the gums. The removable total prosthesis is removable by the patient himself without the need for a dentist and can be cleaned at home.


It is a total prosthesis attached to implants, used to rehabilitate the lack of all teeth in the arch, defined as removable as it is anchored on spherical or cylindrical attachments placed on a minimum of 2 implants. Being removable, it has the advantage of allowing constant cleaning while ensuring greater stability and comfort than a total prosthesis (denture).


The dental skeleton, also called mobile skeleton prosthesis, is a removable medical device, aimed at the functional and aesthetic replacement of missing teeth. It is characterized by three main elements: flange (the part of the base of a denture that extends from the collar of the teeth to the edge of the denture), artificial teeth and a central metal body (usually made of an alloy of chromium, cobalt and molybdenum) .
The supporting structure is also equipped with hooks or attachments, to be fixed to the natural teeth chosen as support. The metal bar improves the stability of the entire structure: in the case of the upper skeleton, this follows the arch of the palate; in the lower skeleton with hooks, it is positioned under the tongue.
A great advantage of the skeleton is the speed of execution.
On the other hand, like all removable prostheses, it must be removed during hygienic maintenance.
A further disadvantage is the risk of visibility of hooks, in fact, to remedy the problem, you can opt for a skeleton made of resins that perfectly simulate the gingival mucosa.


It is a removable partial prosthesis suitable for rehabilitating partial edentulous patients where healthy and sufficient dental elements remain in the arch to ensure stability of the prosthesis. The natural teeth that will support the prosthesis must be covered with crowns in which the attachments of the mobile skeletal prosthesis will be inserted. The prosthesis consists of a metal structure covered in pink resin in the gum area and with teeth in white resin.


The nylon prosthesis is a light, non-bulky and removable prosthetic product that replaces the old skeletons with visible metal hooks and therefore unsightly especially in the anterior sectors.
These prostheses are used as a temporary prosthesis in the case of partial edentulism, while waiting to receive the fixed prosthesis.
It also allows the restoration of the “false gum”, restoring shape to the mouth and not leaving the imperfection created by the lack of teeth on the face.
