A refined provisional solution is a denture made by a dental technician for provisional purposes. The image illustrates a refined provisional solution on a plaster model. Nowadays, patients need not leave the doctor’s office without teeth, whether they are getting a single tooth or the entire dentition replaced.
Frequently, the dentist fabricates dentures immediately in his office. As can be seen here, the dentist creates a provisional crown from a plaster model using self-hardening plastic and tooth templates. Such provisional solutions can protect the teeth from temperature changes for about a week.
A vital tooth that is not provisionally protected risks damage that can eventually require root treatment or other corrective treatment. Occasionally, when the provisional solution has to be worn for a longer period of time, a dental technician will manufacture the denture rather than the dentist. In this case, it is considered a refined provisional solution, and the denture can be made of plastic, metal, or ceramic.
This female patient is unhappy with her anterior bridge. The teeth appear dull and unnatural because of their similar length and width. She wants single teeth, not a block solution. This requires an implant.
Furthermore, some of the teeth have received poor root treatment; she now wants a restoration of the entire set of affected teeth. The old crowns have already been removed, root treatments have been repeated, and a new implant has been placed.
The patient is getting a tooth impression so that the technician can manufacture the actual crowns. The refined provisional solution has been removed and the impression has been taken. After the implant impression is complete and the tooth stumps have been cleaned, the refined provisional solution is reattached to the teeth.
Owing to the refined provisional solution, repetition of root treatment was possible, which in turn facilitated implant placement. The refined provisional solution gave the patient something to smile about during the transition period.Refined Provisional Solution
