Fixed prosthetics refers to dentures permanently fixed onto natural teeth or implants. Fixed prosthetics include dental crowns, bridges and dentures fixated onto dental implants. Mobile prosthetics generally denote mobile dentures and they are often applied in cases of major loss of the dental bone which cannot be replaced in order for dental implants to be inserted. The patients can take them out as they see fit.
As one of the most sought disciplines of modern dental medicine, prosthetics is most commonly mentioned in the context of regaining a healthy and attractive smile which represents the decisive factor in the overall facial appearance in today’s culture.
FOR WHOM ARE DENTAL PROSTHETICS INTENDED?
Prosthetic works are intended for persons with mild or severe teeth damage and persons missing one or more teeth. They are inserted for purely aesthetic reasons and to restore functionality of teeth.
WHEN ARE DENTAL CROWNS USED?
Dental crowns can be placed on top of implants which serve as a replacement for natural teeth. They are often placed on top of natural teeth which have suffered severe damage as a result of dental trauma in order to strengthen them and restore their appearance. They can also be placed on darkened teeth for purely aesthetic reasons. Dental crowns can be made of ceramics, metal-ceramics and zircon.
WHEN ARE DENTAL SHELLS USED?
Dental veneers are used in cases of mild damage to front teeth in order to restore their appearance (especially their whiteness, glow and to perform other cosmetic corrections). They are made out of thin ceramics and are custom-made individually for each patient.
WHEN ARE DENTAL BRIDGES USED?
Dental bridges are used when two or more teeth are lost. They consist of two or more connected crowns that are placed on top of natural teeth or dental implants.
WHEN ARE DENTURES USED?
Dentures are used in cases of major teeth loss and they are often made to replace all teeth in a jaw. There are several types of dentures: complete dentures (for filling the entire jaw) and partial dentures (for filling several sets of teeth).
Normal dentures have a lot of functional disadvantages like dropping out, chafing etc. For this reason, it is increasingly common for dentures to be placed onto dental implants, in particular onto: 4 implants (ALL on 4) or onto 6 implants (ALL ON 6). When dentures are fixated onto implants, they stand firm, they do not chafe and generally provide a better appearance.
