What is a dental prostheses?

As you age, your limbs may feel stiff sometimes. We all seem to lose our strength, and we can develop wrinkles and age spots, and the same can happen to your teeth as they wear, just like your body does become worn down and weaker. Usually, your teeth enamel thins and they aren’t well protected. They can develop chips, cracks, and other blemishes, or you may even lose one, two, or more teeth. Such defects are unable to self-regenerate, and as a result, your oral health gets threatened. Therefore, we use artificial appliances known as dental prostheses to restore damaged, unaesthetic, or dysfunctional teeth. They are also used to replace one or more missing natural teeth.

A dental prosthetic is a custom-fabricated appliance created specifically to replace missing teeth or teeth suffering from a structural defect. It is the replacement of missing parts of teeth, bone, gums, or facial structures.

Types of dental prostheses devices!

Dental Crowns

A crown is a cap for a damaged tooth that can be made from a variety of materials, including metal or porcelain. It is a new covering for a damaged tooth, and you might have one over a molar that rarely shows, or you might have crowns on your front teeth that we specifically design to match your other teeth. Crowns tend to be good long-term solutions for teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or worn down.

Dental Bridge

Our dentist can close — or bridge — the gaps in your smile with dental bridges too (as the name implies). So, a dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. It is a compromise between dentures and implants. Pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, but usually, they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth. There are cases when the bridge may be attached to an implant for greater security and stability. Take a look at the typical process of getting a ClassDent bridge:

Dental bridges  can last for decades. However 5 to 15 years is a reasonable expectation.

Dentures

Dentures are prosthetic devices working as removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: complete dentures, which are used when all the teeth are missing, and partial ones which are used when some natural teeth remain. They fit snugly against the gums and look and function like natural teeth. The extent of tooth loss, as well as your preference determines what kind of dentures are best for you.

The most common types of dentures include:

Dental Veneers Icon

Dental Veneers

Did you know that dental veneers are also called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates? That's because they are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. What're more, veneers help improve the color and appearance of natural teeth by covering them with a thin, natural-looking shell. Veneers can be made from porcelain (which better mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth) or from resin composite materials. It is also worth noting that porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers.

Feel free to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with our dentist.

Remember that you need to have relatively healthy teeth to support a veneer. Usually they can last 10 to 15 years before needing to be replaced.

The Benefits of a Dental Prostheses Device

They improve the appearance of your teeth and help you boost your confidence and self-esteem. Your smile and how you feel about your appearance is going to change for the better.

Dental Prostheses will improve your ability to chew, allowing you to consume a healthy diet.

With them you will be able to support the health and strength of the jawbone avoiding problems related to nutrition, digestion, gum disease, and the loss of jawbone material. You will also support the strength of other teeth.

Dental prosthetics will protect you against gum disease that can lead to serious health problems. They improve your oral health.

Remember

Did you know that a missing tooth can contribute to surrounding bone loss and raise the risk of gum disease? Both can affect your overall oral health. Therefore, hurry up and contact us if you have just lost a tooth or have had a missing tooth for some time. The longer you wait, the more extensive and irreversible the damage can be.

We will help you to find the right prosthetic solution for your dental needs and decide which may be best for your health and your budget.
