Prosthetics

Dentures replace lost or damaged teeth. They can do much more than improve your smile. Missing teeth can affect your ability to chew and increase your risk of gum disease. Missing teeth can also affect the health of the jaw bones and put other teeth at risk.

However, that's not all, because the bad condition of the teeth and gums has a direct connection with the overall condition of the organism. If we do not have a sufficient number of functional teeth, then we are not even able to chew. Chewing itself is the beginning of digestion, which is of key importance for proper and healthy digestion of food.

Insufficiently chewed food leads to pain in the stomach, intestines and flatulence. Statistical data show that people who do not have enough teeth are mostly obese and that the chance of various other diseases increases.

In situations where we are forced to remove teeth that are unable to be repaired, prosthetics solves this by replacing the missing teeth.

Apart from the fact that the health of our teeth directly affects the physical state of the organism, there is another important thing that is expressed as a problem today, and that is the psychological state.

There are several fixed dental restorations, such as crowns and bridges and mobile dentures, including full and partial.

What does prosthetics offer us?

As we have already said, there are two very important things that we must not forget when it comes to the role of prostheses, namely:

  • by using artificial teeth, we improve the health of the gums as well as the overall condition of the body
  • by applying modern prosthetics, we solve aesthetic problems

Partial prosthesis

Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. It is placed simply by leaning on the gum. They are made to be mobile so that we can easily take care of the oral hygiene of the mouth.

What is good about partial dentures is precisely the low price. However, it also has its flaws. And that is that they can be quite uncomfortable as well as cause pain because they have a wire.

Complete dentures

It is used in patients who are edentulous. In terms of advantages and disadvantages, it is similar to a partial denture. They are not expensive, so they are affordable for most, but the downside is that they can be inconvenient. The lifespan of a fixed prosthesis is a maximum of ten years.

Bridges

Dental bridges are used in patients who are missing one or more teeth. The bridge rests on other healthy teeth that must be ground first. Aesthetically it looks pretty good considering there are no metal parts. These prosthetic solutions are more expensive than partial and total dentures. There are metal-ceramic and non-metal ones.

Dental crowns

Crowns are fixed prosthetic elements that are placed on the tooth. They can be supported on a tooth or on a dental implant. Crowns can be said to be aesthetically good solutions for a damaged tooth. As far as prices are concerned, they are among the more expensive solutions, but we must not forget that we are getting a modern dental solution for our teeth.

Dental implants

A dental implant is a small, threaded post that replaces a missing tooth root. Once your dentist adds a crown to your implant, it functions just like a natural tooth.

Your dentist can restore dental implants with crowns, bridges, and even dentures. Unlike traditional crowns and bridges, implants do not require changing your natural teeth. Many dentists consider implants the gold standard for tooth replacement.
