Sometimes we can lose a dental piece due to the passage of time or by a knock. These uncomfortable situations can be easily solved.When teeth are missing, althoughItcannot be seen outside, oral function are affected, and also affects your aesthetics. We must replace as soon as possible any lack of teeth. When we lose our teeth, the gum margin decreases and a bone resorption occurs, so we have to replace the teeth in a short period of time.
The patientsare able to take in or out the prosthesis by themselves. They are made with resin and could have metal reinforcement structure (skeletal). They could be complete prosthesis, meaning they contain all the teeth or a part of it.
The patient are not able to remove it. They can be in one piece (sleeve) or made of several pieces (bridges) or all of the arcade, they are made of ceramic-metal cases, that is composed of a metal cap that provides resistance and ceramic lined. Nowadays they can be also made with alumina or zirconia caps (white and translucent, highly aesthetic).
Prosthetic implant could be done with the same material than dental prosthesis but can be of two types:
Fixed- That can be cemented over a pillar between the crown and the implant or screwed directly
Movable - That can be supportedby an atacher used as brackets or by metal bars.
Here inDoc. EspadasDental Clinic we promote its facilities with a revolutionary 3D X-ray CT scan system that shows in detail the structure and maxillofacial bone of each patient, a high resolution three-dimensional view with the ability to scan simultaneously in real time, which provides lots of accurate information for diagnosis and facilitates the planning of our treatments in both surgery and the prosthesis implant.
