The main goal of prosthetics is to restore functional chewing and aesthetics with minimal preparation of dental hard tissues in order to preserve healthy tissues and ensure long-lasting results. The scope of this treatment can range from the restoration of the structure in the area of one tooth to the restoration of missing rows of teeth.
STAGES OF DENTAL PROSTHETICS:
Treatment planning - after the first consultation and examination of the Patient, an individual prosthetic plan is drawn up, all of its stages are coordinated with the Patient. If needed, visits to other specialists (dental therapist or doctor endodontist) are scheduled. In order to achieve a good result, the help of a specialized team of doctors is sometimes needed.
Preparatory works - tooth preparation, pin modeling, and dental impression works are carried out. Doctors coordinate work and deadlines with technicians working in laboratories. The deadline depends on the scope and complexity of the works, so the final date is set individually each time.
Final works - after agreeing on the deadline, the product is inspected and the cementation procedure takes place.
Care - according to the nature of the prosthetics and the Patient's hygiene skills, the doctor indicates the peculiarities of prosthesis care. In the case of a standard prosthesis, it is recommended to visit a dental hygienist twice a year.
Metal ceramics - the core of a metal-ceramic prosthesis is made of metal, which is covered with a layer of porcelain that matches the color of the Patient's teeth. This way, single teeth or a row of defective teeth may be applied with the prosthesis of metal ceramics.
Metal-free ceramics -they are made of porcelain. This method of prosthetics is aesthetic, strong, and long-lasting. Such prostheses are light-permeable and look natural. They are used in the manufacture of anterior dental crowns.
Zirconium ceramics - these prostheses are light, strong, and have natural tooth color. Instead of a dark metal frame, a solid white zirconia frame is used. In terms of strength, such a prosthesis outperforms metal-free ceramic restorations. They are used in the production of dental crowns and crown prosthesis on implant support.
