What is Dental Prosthetics?
Dental prosthetics is a dental discipline that deals with the replacement of lost teeth, crowns, bridges, veneers and full or partial dentures. In addition to functional, prosthetics also play an aesthetic role in the correction of existing teeth. We divide it into fixed, mobile and combination prosthetics.
Replacement of lost teeth, treatment and repair of existing teeth, as well as cosmetic or functional corrections, are a wide area of cosmetic dentistry. When it comes to aesthetic dentistry, we refer primarily to dental prosthetics and dental implants.
Precision and speed of workmanship are increased, the function and aesthetics of prosthetics have been perfected, the biocompatibility of the material is playing an increasing role. At the same time, patients’ expectations also rise, which poses new challenges for dentists.
Beautiful teeth and a natural smile are certainly one of the most important factors when forming a general impression of someone. With the cutting-edge capabilities of modern dentistry, the latest generation of technology and materials, they should no longer be an exception but a generally accepted standard.
Dental prosthetics as part of dental medicine
When it comes to aesthetic dentistry, we are referring primarily to dental prosthetics or dental implants in dental medicine. Prosthetics is a branch of dental medicine that deals with the replacement of lost teeth and soft parts of the oral cavity with complete (total) or partial (partial) dentures, crowns, bridges and veneers, and improving the function and appearance of natural teeth.
Services in the field of dental prosthetics
Prosthetics are divided into:
- fixed prosthetics (crowns, bridges)
- mobile prosthetics (partial and total dentures and implants)
Fixed prosthetics is a special branch of prosthetics. Using CAD-CAM technology, it is possible to cut out the most sophisticated (most precise) structures required to produce fixed prosthetic work:
- metal crowns and bridges,
- metal-ceramic crowns and bridges,
(Metal and metal-ceramic crowns and bridges made with CAD-CAM non-oxid metal technology)
- full zircon crowns and bridges,
- zircon ceramic crowns and bridges,
- ceramic crown glass,
- crowns and bridges of composite materials (temporary),
- veneer making
- Inlay and Onlay fill,
- combined works (combination of metal-ceramic crowns, etecmen with skeletal prosthesis, rungs).
- making individual abutments,
- production of (metal, metal-ceramic, full zircon and zircon-ceramic, glass ceramic) crowns and bridges for individual abutments,
- production (metal, metal-ceramic, full zircon and zircon-ceramic, glass-ceramic) crowns and abutment bridges,
- hybrid bridges (all on 4 and all on 6 – bridges on 4 or 6 implants),
- denture implants with ball (physiodens teeth or acrylic teeth).
- total dentures (dentures with acrylic teeth)
- partial dentures (dentures with acrylate teeth)
- total dentures (dentures with multilayered-physiodens teeth)
- partial dentures (dentures with multilayered-physiodens teeth)
- aesthetic total dentures (dentures with multilayered-physiodens teeth)
- esthetic partial dentures (dentures with multilayered-physiodens teeth)
Aesthetic dentures with physiodens teeth (multilayered teeth) give a naturalness to your mobile dentures. Using the most up-to-date materials in dentistry, it is possible to replicate the completely natural appearance of teeth and jaws.
Physiodens (multilayered teeth) are made using state-of-the-art materials in dental technology. They are compact and wear-resistant and aesthetically suited to the color and shape of natural teeth.
- skeleton (metal) dentures (dentures with physiodens or acrylic teeth)
Bicompatible metal skeleton dentures are made in cases of partial edentulousness. Metal hooks, shortened base of the prosthesis (metal skeleton) make it easier to wear the denture for greater denture stability, functionality and phonetics.
