Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that replaces the teeth, aesthetically correct the existing, ie. improve function and aesthetic appearance of teeth, and thus improve the quality of your life.
Fixed Prosthodontics as a branch of dentistry offers the highest quality solution for patients suffering from the loss of one or more teeth. Because of their natural feeling and long service life it is the most common choice of patients who want to keep the natural look.
The foundation of a ceramic crown can be metal, zircon or completely ceramic.
Metal-ceramics is one of the classical materials that today does no longer meet the needs and wishes of patients. The main disadvantages of metal-ceramics lie in the metal as a material since the metal core blocks the natural teeth transparency, reducing the aesthetic value of dental prosthesis and is eventually possible occurrence of “black edge” because of the possibility of withdrawing of the gums.
Titanium-ceramic is a high quality, lightweight material that does not cause allergic reactions. Crown made of titanium-ceramic are characterized by comfort, high strength and neutral flavor. The structure is gray.
Zircon is a modern material that is characterized by high strength and biocompatibility, and at the same time provides a natural looking tooth. The desires to have teeth that hardly differ from natural means that most patients seek for non-metal restorations. Since their structure is white, phenomenon of “black edge” is impossible because of the possibility for withdrawing the gums.
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic replacement which replaces one or more missing teeth.
As their name says, dental bridges link broken tooth rows in a single unit and thus restore full functionality and aesthetics of dental appliances.
A common and simplest is the bridge with three teeth, when the middle tooth in the air is fixed to the base with two teeth on each side.
Bridges can be implemented using a ceramic crown or in combination with the implant.
Partial dentures are used when a patient is missing a small number of teeth, and they are then inserted between existing teeth.
Full denture replaces the complete lack of teeth in the jaw. It is recommended only as an alternative cost-effective solution for the rehabilitation of edentulous jaw when implant placement is not possible.
The base is made of acrylic and teeth may be ceramic or acrylic. While the patient is waiting for his prosthesis, he gets temporary teeth.
