In cases where the teeth and surrounding tissues are lost or completely destroyed due to various reasons, that is, they are used to repair or replace them.
The aim of the prosthesis is to restore the lost functions of the patient while at the same time correcting the impaired speech and improving the aesthetic appearance. In this way, the loss of oral health is largely corrected and the individuals who have to live with missing or devastated teeth in the society are supported psychologically. Because individuals who have to continue their lives in this way forget to laugh first. This, in addition to functional disorders, causes harm to self-confidence in humans. It is aimed to improve the quality of life of people with various prostheses made to such patients.
The first step to a healthy smile is to replace the missing teeth.
Types of Prosthetics
Dentures fixed by the physician and cannot be removed by the patient. There are varieties including crowns, bridges and implants.
Crowns between fixed prostheses; It is the type of prosthesis in which the tooth is coated for material losses and aesthetic problems concerning the single tooth. Bridge prosthesis; It is a type of prosthesis made by supporting the missing teeth or cutting teeth instead of teeth. Incomplete tooth formation creates an aesthetically poor appearance and bending of adjacent teeth towards the dental cavity may cause downward extension of the antagonist teeth, causing joint disorders.
The bridge prosthesis replaces the lost tooth in terms of aesthetics and function and this prosthesis should be taken care of as well as natural teeth. Tooth decay under the marginally disrupted prosthesis will develop as the process progresses to pain complaints and tooth loss. Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day from the gingiva to the tooth (top-down in the upper jaw, bottom-up in the lower jaw) with soft sweeping and soft circular movements. Applying excessive force, brushing the bristle ends with a broken brush, and brushing from the tooth to the gum cause gingival recessions and deterioration of the gingival alignment of the prosthesis. Metal supported and Zirconium supported (metal-free) porcelains are used in this application.
These are prostheses that the patient can attach and remove at any time. There are total, partial, sensitive and implant supported removable prostheses.
Assisted removable dentures
It is performed especially in patients without prosthesis retention in the lower jaw. With the help of implants placed on the jawbone, the prosthesis retention and chewing function are optimized.
It is done in patients who do not have restraint. With the help of implants placed on the jawbone, the prosthesis retention and chewing function are optimized.
Total prosthesis is an application that can be done if there are no teeth left in your mouth. These are prostheses, which are produced from acrylic and also called as 'palate prosthesis' among the people.
