Orthopaedic is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions of the stomatognathic system.
Prosthetics is a method of restoring teeth, maintaining and enhancing facial aesthetics and smile, contributing to better social integration and improved quality of life.
There are various methods of prosthetics, such as:
Implant-supported prosthetics is one of the most innovative technologies that allows for the replacement of a missing tooth and restoration of the desired appearance in a short time. In the case of implant prosthetics, other teeth in the oral cavity are not affected, as there is no need to grind down neighboring teeth or involve them in the restoration of the missing tooth. It is made from state-of-the-art materials such as metal-ceramic crowns, all-ceramic or zirconia, ensuring that the dental crown has an appearance identical to that of a natural tooth.
Prosthetics on tooth abutments is performed by prepping the tooth/teeth that will be covered with crowns or dental bridges. This method is applied when the tooth has significant damage and its walls do not have sufficient strength or when the dental filling is very large and may fracture under higher pressure. In the case of dental bridges, the adjacent teeth to the missing tooth are prepared to support the prosthetic restoration. The dental crowns or bridges are created from the same materials as in the case of implant-supported prosthetics (metal-ceramic, all-ceramic, zirconia).
Removable dentures are used in cases of partial or complete tooth loss. Dental dentures can restore your self-confidence, aesthetic appearance, masticatory function, and phonetics.
