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.
