Prosthetic dental treatment

Prosthetic dental treatment

Prosthetic dental treatment is the department of dentistry that aims to restore the lost teeth and the surrounding oral tissues to the patient. Loss of teeth and surrounding tissues will cause loss of aesthetic, functional, phonetics and morale. For this reason, these losses must be compensated by making prostheses. Dental prostheses can be basically classified as fixed prostheses, mobile prostheses and implant prostheses.

Fixed Prostheses

Fixed dentures are prostheses that are made by supporting the existing teeth and fixed by sticking to these teeth. They are called fixed prostheses because they cannot be removed by the patient. In the construction of fixed prostheses, porcelains with metal base or without metal are used. Coverings made on single teeth or bridge prostheses made by minimizing adjacent teeth to complement missing teeth.

Movable Prostheses

Movable prostheses are prostheses made by supporting the teeth and the teeth that are lost at the same time and the remaining gums and bones. Generally, they are done if the number of teeth in the mouth and the placement do not allow for a fixed prosthesis.

They are larger than the fixed prosthesis because they are the parts that spread through these regions to receive support from the toothless spaces. They can easily be removed and inserted by the patient. In the cases where the teeth are partially lost, the prostheses attached to the existing teeth by hooks (claws) or sensitive holders (anchor) are called partial prosthesis. In cases where the teeth are completely lost, total prostheses are made on the gums and bones in the toothless regions.


The implant is a titanium screw in the form of a tooth root placed in the jawbone to replace the missing teeth. A tooth lost by using implants can be returned closest to nature without touching neighboring teeth. The patient’s prosthesis, which has to use a moving prosthesis, can be converted to a fixed prosthesis. Alternatively, implants can be used to reduce the movements of the full dentures in the mouth and increase the retention. Implants can provide many alternative solutions to remove limitations in terms of denture making.

Eccentric exercises are also of interest to the treatment of prosthetic teeth. Aesthetic applications can be made to obtain a better appearance in situations such as color, shape and size problems in teeth, fractures, abrasions, developmental defects, spacing, position disturbances.

The basic material of these applications is porcelain. Metal-free porcelain, which has developed rapidly especially in the recent period and has widespread usage, makes it possible to make very natural and aesthetic applications. Coatings made using metal-free porcelains and fingernail-like leaf porcelains (lamina) adhered to only the visible faces of the teeth are very successful applications for aesthetic improvement.

What is Smile Design?

The design of your smile is all of the treatment planning that your goal is to capture your most aesthetic visuals by evaluating your teeth, your gums, your lips and all your face, aesthetically within yourself and in harmony with each other. The smile targeted using digital programs can be viewed as provisional.

What is Laminate Veneer?

Laminate Veneer restorations are solutions in aesthetic, porcelain structure used to change the unpleasant color, form and position of the teeth in the front region applied by using adhesive techniques. It is also applied to prevent feminine protection and further loss of material in the case of material loss such as caries / fracture, or to avoid coloring as in composite fillings.
