Dr. Fraschina dentist: professionalism at the service of your smile
After completing university, Fiorenzo Fraschina obtained their doctorate with a thesis entitled "Use of a fibrin glue for the prevention of osteoradionecrosis following dental extractions in the irradiated field".
He practised in Geneva for five years as an assistant, learning the principles of implantology and aesthetic dental medicine and surgery.
Early in his career, he was particularly interested in the introduction of composite (white) fillings on the posterior teeth. Increasingly attracted by dental cosmetics, he has become a specialist in all the techniques of aesthetic medicine: ceramic veneers, ceramic crowns without metal, whitening treatments.
Dr Fraschina has worked in his dental practice in Lugano since 1994.
Ceramic veneers consist of very thin ceramic "chips" that are applied to the front teeth, after a slight preparation of the enamel.
This is the process of repairing teeth that are damaged, usually due to caries but also due to fractures or colour and shape imperfections, to restore the integrity of the dental organ.
This area of dentistry focuses on the dental pulp, the living part of the tooth. In cases of deep tooth decay or following fracture, the damage can affect the tooth pulp, which requires endodontic treatment of the tooth.
In the case of major caries, large fractures or devitalized teeth, a ceramic cap is recommended.
These partial prostheses consist of a frame made of a chromium-cobalt-molybdenum alloy that attaches to the remaining teeth and on to which teeth are added.
Oral surgery most often concerns the extraction of wisdom teeth for different reasons, such as malpositioning, caries or abscess.
This relates to treatment of the supporting tissue of the tooth: the periodontium, composed of the gingiva.
A mix of nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen (O) is administered by means of a nasal mask at customised concentrations as required.
