What is a dental prosthesis?

The prosthesis is specially produced for the purpose of replacing lost teeth. The dental prosthesis, which is produced in line with the personal needs of the patient, should fit the person’s mouth perfectly, look natural and have an easy-to-use feature. Dental prosthesis can be used to replace one or a few lost teeth, or it can be used to replace all teeth.


Fixed Prostheses

Fixed prosthesis procedure is the process of replacing missing or excessively lost teeth by using materials similar to tooth tissue and color.

It gives the person natural tooth appearance and functionality. It is the most preferred procedure.

While fixed prostheses, which are the most preferred type of prosthesis in tooth deficiencies, are made, some teeth in the mouth should be reduced in order to support the prosthesis. Although some patients are concerned about this procedure, considering the many advantages of fixed prostheses, it will be understood that this concern is unfounded. Thanks to fixed prostheses,

– The chewing function becomes easier.
– Speech defects are fixed.
– Since the prosthesis supports the lips and cheeks, significant gains are achieved in facial aesthetics.
Fixed prostheses, like other prosthesis types, are offered for use in different types according to the patient’s needs, aesthetic expectations and economic conditions. Among the fixed prosthesis types,

– Crown veneer
– Banding
– Porcelain prosthesis with metal substructure
– Full metal
– Porcelain prostheses with zirconium substructure
– Reinforced porcelain (Empress)

Removable Partial Prosthetics

This type of prosthesis has the feature that allows the patient to put on and remove their own prostheses. Removable prostheses continue their functions by getting support from the soft tissues in the mouth as well as the teeth that have remained intact in the mouth. Removable dentures are a type of prosthesis that can be made in line with the needs of the patient and as many as the number of missing teeth, as well as in cases where all teeth are missing.

Some patients have prostheses made by taking support from their natural teeth and soft tissues. This type of prosthesis is called “movable partial prosthesis”. In some patients, however, all natural teeth are lost, and a “full denture” is applied to such patients, which maintains its function with only support from the gums and palate.

– Palate prosthesis
– Implant supported full denture
– Tooth-supported full denture
– Parcel (partial) prosthesis
– Acetal application
– Varieties such as precision prosthesis are removable prosthesis types.
