Prosthetic Tooth

What is Dental Prosthesis?

Replacement of the aesthetic and chewing function with biocompatible materials is called prosthesis, which is the result of loss of teeth due to various reasons (caries, gum disease etc.) in the mouth. In addition, without loss of teeth can be made for aesthetic purposes.

How Tooth Losses Come To The Square?

In general, tooth loss can occur as a result of the treatment of caries and gum diseases. In addition to this, there are some loss of teeth as a result of some accidents. For this reason, prosthesis should be made to replace the lost teeth with functional and aesthetic requirements.

What is the purpose of dental prosthesis?

The denture is intended to restore the lost function of the patient while at the same time correcting the distorted speech and improving the aesthetic appearance. With these practices, it is ensured that the individuals who have to live with missing or ruined teeth in the society are supported psychologically while the oral health that has been lost is corrected. Because of the aesthetic problems in the teeth of individuals such as speech and laughing functions are affected by this disorder. This can cause functional impairments as well as damage to self-confidence in humans. It is a fact that the various prostheses made to these people allow the quality of life to be increased.

Prosthetic Types

Fixed Prostheses (kron-bridge-like glued prostheses
Movable Prostheses (total or partial prosthesis)
Implant prostheses (fixed or movable)
Single crowns
Total prostheses
Partial dentures
Precision prostheses

Fixed Prostheses

What is Kuron?

It is a method of restoring teeth that have been damaged by broken or excess caries.

What is bridge prosthesis?

If one or more teeth are missing and healthy teeth are present on both sides of the missing region, a restoration is made to complete the missing teeth, supported by these two adjacent teeth.

Movable Prostheses

What is partial prosthesis?

In partial lack of teeth, special acrylic and metal parts called crochet (hook) made with a combination of metals and dental prosthesis is the kind that helps to hold.

What Are Precision-Holding Prostheses?

Another type of prosthesis used in partial tooth deficiency. The retention of the prosthesis is provided by female and male parts called precise joints, not crossovers like partial prosthesis. These prostheses are much more aesthetic, conservative and healthier than classical partial prosthesis.

What is total (full tooth) prosthesis?

Exact dental prostheses are removable prostheses that sit on the upper and lower jaws with tissue support when all the teeth are lost, such as bruising, trauma, or bone erosion. Today, however, thanks to the developing technology, movable or fixed prostheses are made through implants in full toothless mouths.

How should the prostheses be cleaned?

Whether fixed or mobile, the first option in prosthetic cleaning is mechanical cleaning with a brush and putty. Removal of removable dentures is also done with a number of cleaning agents and materials. The prostheses are cleaned (though not very often) by means of an effervescent tablet placed in the water. However, the partial removable dentures are removed from the mouth, and the teeth in the mouth are cleaned, and then the prosthesis can be cleaned and replaced.
In addition, gum parts remaining under the covers made of fixed brushes with products such as toothbrushes should also be cleaned as recommended and recommended by the physician. Attention to the cleanliness of the prostheses is important in terms of the health of the teeth present in the mouth and the prolongation of the prosthesis use.

Porcelain Laminate (Laminate Veneer)

Laminate Veneer Porcelain lamina are porcelain leaves glued to the tooth only by removing minimum material from the front surface of the teeth. These leaves in very thin (0,3, - 0,5 mm) thickness are specially prepared in the desired color length and form and are glued to the front surface of the tooth.
In this method, unlike classical porcelain crowns, very little enamel is removed from the tooth. This is the most conservative treatment possible. The Laminate Veneer is very thin and does not contain any metal and it gives satisfactory results in the quality that can not be distinguished from real teeth due to its light transmittance properties.
The operation is very simple and short-term. First of all, the patient is taking measurements. And in the lab a sample model study is done. Patient teeth see the ending stage on this model before they are cut. Then the teeth are prepared by a painless procedure. After the main measure is taken, the temporary veneer is glued. Thus, the teeth are protected from external influences.
In the laboratory, a model is made according to the last measure and porcelain lamina is prepared. It is adhered to the teeth with a special technique and the adhesive resin material. As a result of the bonding process, it is not possible to separate the laminae from the teeth. Therefore, it is very resistant against breakage.
