PROSTHETIC DENTISTRY

It aims to regain the aesthetics and function that the patient has lost by reconstructing the lost teeth and oral tissues.

 

Treatment Options in Prosthodontics

Fixed Prostheses; In teeth with insufficient dental tissue support and a large amount of material loss that cannot be restored with filling material, inlay-onlay restorations that include a part of the tooth depending on the size of the tissue loss or a crown restoration can be performed by reducing the entire tooth. In cases where there is one or more missing teeth, the teeth on both sides of the gap are reduced and used as support: prostheses are bridge prostheses.
Changes in people's social lives, advancing technology in dentistry and advances in prosthetic treatments have increased the aesthetic and functional expectations of the patients and increased their living standards. Especially with the increase of aesthetic expectation, the metal alloys used in the infrastructure have been replaced by superior aesthetic and biocompatible materials.

Zirconium restorations; They are highly resistant, biocompatible, durable and aesthetic restorations. The fact that zirconium oxide is a material close to natural tooth color and remains at least as resistant to force has made the use of zirconium ceramics in fixed and over-implant prostheses.

Empress Crowns; They are highly resistant, biocompatible, durable and aesthetic restorations. The fact that zirconium oxide is a material close to natural tooth color and remains at least as resistant to force has made the use of zirconium ceramics in fixed and over-implant prostheses.

Laminate Restorations; They are very aesthetic restorations that are close to the natural tooth obtained by bonding the leaf-shaped porcelains obtained as a result of minimal abrasion of the tooth surface to treat the shape, color, form and size disorders in the teeth.

Removable Dentures
In the treatment of all edentulous patients, prostheses made with support from only tissue are called complete dentures. In cases where there is a natural tooth but sufficient support is not provided for the fixed prosthesis, prostheses made with support from both teeth and tissues and can be attached and removed by the patient are partial dentures. In partial dentures, metal parts extended on natural teeth to get support from teeth disrupt the aesthetic appearance. Precision attachment prostheses are used to eliminate this negativity.

Prostheses on Implants: Prostheses made with support from implants instead of natural teeth are called prostheses on implants. Fixed dentures on implants; They are crown or bridge prostheses that are made with support from one or more implants, adhered or used fixed by screwing. Especially if a few teeth are missing, it is placed in the missing area and prevents the neighboring healthy teeth from being damaged. These prostheses can be made of metal, ceramic or zirconium.

Removable dentures on implants; Implant removable prostheses are a form of treatment with 2,3 or 4 implants placed in the jaw bone in complete edentulism. These prostheses are both implants and prostheses supported by tissues.
