Prosthetic Treatments

What are the benefits of prosthetic treatment?

Prostheses are restorations prepared from different artificial materials to replace missing teeth. They also increase the quality of life for patients who have difficulty speaking. Prostheses provide solution for aesthetic problems and reinstates chewing function.

What kind of prosthesis are there?

There are many kinds of prosthesis including implant prosthesis, precise attachment prosthesis, partial dentures, complete dentures, removable dentures, and fixed prosthesis.

How should know which to prefer?

Missing teeth are restored with fixed dentures, which are supported by other teeth or implants. The dentist can prefer to apply removable dentures when the number of missing teeth is high and fixed prosthesis cannot be applied.

What are the types of removable dentures?

There are two types of removable dentures: full and partial prosthesis. The usage of removable prosthesis depends on number of teeth, not the age of patient. Complete dentures used in toothless mouths also offer aesthetic solutions as cheeks are saved from caving in. Full dentures are made of acrylic resin and pink resin close to the color of natural gum. Partially removable prostheses get support from the jawbone and teeth in the tooth cavity, providing speech and chewing functions. In Precision Attachment Dentures, the process is done with holders and crowns made on supporting teeth, not on the clasp on the teeth. The most important advantages of precision attachment dentures are their aesthetics and retention levels. Implant Assisted Prostheses provide great comfort to the patient by eliminating all the disadvantages of removable prostheses.
