It aims to restore the lost esthetics, phonation and function to the patient by reconstructing the lost teeth and oral surrounding tissues.
treatment options in prosthetic dentistry.
Prostheses that are made and glued or screwed on both natural teeth and implants fall into this group.
These are prostheses that are more easily accepted by the patient than removable prostheses and cannot be removed by the patient. In the prosthesis, the patient’s lost functions are tried to be regained, while at the same time it is aimed to correct the deteriorated speech and improve the aesthetic appearance.
With the developing technology, fixed prosthesis applications, which can imitate the natural appearance with very different applications, have now been added to clinical solutions. There are various types of prosthesis, including metal-supported porcelain coatings, emax, zirconium coatings, laminated veneers, implant-supported fixed prostheses. Your doctor will recommend the most suitable one for you.
Precision Attached Prostheses.
It is a type of dental prosthesis applied in cases where there is a large number of missing teeth and fixed prosthesis cannot be treated. It is also known as snap-in prostheses among the people due to the hidden retainers that fit into the slots prepared in the teeth.
The parts of precision-connected prostheses that fit into the sockets prevent the prosthesis from being dislodged, so they do not move while eating.
Since the parts of precision attachment dentures are supported by the teeth, they are much more aesthetic than hooked dentures.
Used in the treatment of one or more missing teeth, they are the appliances on which the missing teeth can be easily inserted and removed whenever the patient wants. They differ as total dentures, partial dentures, and immediate dentures.
Total dentures are prostheses, also known as dentures, made of acrylic, which are supported by the bone tissue remaining in the lower and upper jaws in cases where there are no natural teeth in your mouth.
Partial dentures are removable prostheses made in cases where some of the natural teeth are removed and some of them are extracted. This type of prosthesis provides retention with crochet wires attached to the main teeth.
Immediate prostheses are prostheses that are prepared in a short time without waiting for healing and placed in the patient’s mouth when all the main teeth are removed, when the patient does not want to be toothless or when implants are placed but a waiting period needs to occur.
As a result of the movement of the removable dentures on the soft tissues, no matter how much care is taken in their construction, the use of the dentures by the patient is more difficult than the fixed denture. The best alternative to the classical removable dentures is the implant supported dentures.
Implant Supported Prostheses:
It is a method applied in patients with missing teeth or completely edentulous patients. This procedure can be applied easily in patients with sufficient dental bone structure. The coating to be made on the implant can be made of various materials according to the patient’s request.
Implant supported prostheses are prepared in smaller sizes compared to traditional prosthetic procedures. This makes it easier for the patient to adapt to the prosthesis. Dentures made with implant support have a stronger resistance to chewing power.
