Prosthetic Dentistry What is it?

It is the branch of dentistry that meets the health and visual needs of the individual by replacing the missing teeth in the mouth with prosthesis.

Good to know

• Dental prostheses are basically classified as fixed prostheses, removable prostheses and over-implant prostheses.

• Fixed prostheses are prostheses applied by taking support from existing teeth and fixed by sticking to these teeth.

• Removable prostheses are prostheses applied by taking support from both the teeth and the gum, tooth and bone tissue remaining in the area of the lost tooth.

• Implant prostheses are titanium screws in the form of tooth root placed in the jawbone to replace lost teeth.

How are missing teeth supplemented?

Missing teeth can be compensated for by making a prosthesis that meets the patient’s health and aesthetic needs. 

How many types of prosthetics are available?

Dental prostheses can be basically classified as fixed prostheses, removable prostheses and over-implant prostheses.

Fixed prostheses: These prostheses made by using support from existing teeth and then fixed to these teeth. Since they cannot be removed by the patient, they are called fixed prostheses. Porcelain with or without a metal infrastructure are used to manufacture fixed prostheses. Crowns made on a single tooth or bridges made by reducing adjacent teeth to complete missing teeth are types of fixed prosthesis.

Removable prostheses : They are prostheses made with the support of both existing teeth and the gums, tooth and bone tissue remaining in the lost tooth area. Generally, these prostheses are preferred when the number and placement of the existing teeth are not suitable for a fixed prosthesis. 

Total prostheses: Full (total) dentures are made that fit the gums and bone in cases where teeth are completely lost.

Implants: Implants are titanium screws in the form of tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to replace lost teeth. A lost tooth can be gained with implants that are very similar to natural teeth without touching adjacent teeth. The prosthesis of the patient who has to use a removable prosthesis can be converted to a fixed prosthesis or implants can be used to reduce the movements of full dentures in the mouth and increase their hold. Implants can provide many alternative solutions to bypass the limitations in prosthesis manufacturing.
