Prosthetics is a branch of dental medicine that deals with the replacement of removed teeth.
It is necessary, as soon as possible after the loss of the tooth to compensate for that tooth because the loss of only one tooth leads to a disorder in the whole jaw. Apart from the no-tooth smile is not nice, problems arise with chewing, digestion of insufficiently chewed foods and disturbances in the position of the remaining teeth and joint pain.
The lost teeth can be compensated in several ways. In our clinics, we use the most modern technology (CAD CAM computer design) and the highest quality zircon and EMAX as a complete porcelain crown for the highest degree of aesthetics by the famous world brands such as Ivoclar and 3M.
Prothetic teeth reconstruction is the biggest challenge for every dentist.
It is imperative to make a good therapy plan and to prepare the remaining teeth for which our team has a long experience and a number of successful therapies. For good and successful therapies, it is necessary to cooperate with a quality dental laboratory. In the building where the clinic is located there is also a laboratory we work with. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and the long-term experience of laboratory staff guarantees you a very successful prosthetics work.
The prosthetics consists of fixed and mobile prosthetics. Fixed prosthetics is part of the prosthetic that deals with the replacement of teeth, crowns and bridges that are permanently glued in the mouth.
To put a crown or bridge, other teeth must be prepared (that is filled) to be crown or bridge bearings.
Today there are several types of materials on the market, from which roses or bridges are made:
Zircon crowns are made of zircons, completely new material in dentistry. They are created by CAD CAM technology, which means that they are very precise and are biocompatible (they do not irritate dental flesh) and have a high level of aesthetics and firmness. This fulfills all the requirements of modern dentistry. Most of the crowns in our office are made of zircons.
Full ceramic crowns stand out with their natural appearance. High aesthetics, biocompatibility, the need to sacrifice less of the patient’s own dental structure and a wide variety of colors make these crowns a number 1 choice when it comes to the teeth in the front region. We use Emax from Ivoclar. This material is also used for making veneers.
Metal ceramic crowns have a metal covered with porcelain and, because of worse aesthetics, are somewhat being used less and less (a black edge around the dental flesh).
Veneers are thin facets that are glued with special glue to the front of the tooth. We achieve the best aesthetic tooth correction with them. The are developed when it is necessary to change the tooth color, close the gap between the tooth or level the slightly rotated tooth. On teeth that have large fillings or a removed nerve they are not used.
Mobile prosthetics involves replacing lost teeth and creating prostheses that the patient can take out of his mouth. There are total prosthesis (when the patient does not have none of their own teeth) and today we consider them temporary because toothless jaws can be much better remedied with the implants and there are partial prostheses which are made when the patient still has some of their own teeth.
Partial prostheses, where carriers are not protected by crowns, we do not create or recommend.
Today there are several materials on the market from which we can make prostheses:
Acrylic – fully plastic prostheses that we create as complete or temporary while we wait for the osteo integration of the implants.
Both metal and Bio HPP are made in combination with the crowns. Bio HPP is a new material for creation of prostheses skelet, made by CAD CAM technology. Unlike metal, it is extremely light, in the color of dental flesh, so it is more aesthetic. From it, skeles can be made to be used for implants. We are happy to recommend it.
