The fixed prosthesis is an element of dentistry designed to replace missing teeth. When fixed, it remains attached to the patient's mouth permanently. That is, it doesn't need to be removed for hygiene, since this is done while the prosthesis is in place, while eliminating the risk of filtration that the partial prosthesis presents.
There are several types of fixed dentures:
- Hybrid prosthesis
The Advantages of a fixed denture before a removable are:
- Greater comfort (no need to remove them to clear them)
- Greater Grip
- Greater Firmness
Dental Implants are the closest you can get to healthy and natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to- confidently eating smiling, laughing, talking and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.
Dental Implants are placed in jaw bone and they bond with the natural bone. Basically a Dental Implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or the skull to support a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
The dental implants have a natural look and feel. They are made up of two pieces- the implant that replaces the root and the crown for the aesthetic and functional factor and the implant that replaces the tooth that was lost and whose root was removed from your jaw.
The part that is implanted is made of titanium; a material compatible with the organism. It is placed through surgery that requires local anaesthesia. The adaptation process is confirmed three months after the surgery. By then, the operation will have healed and the process is terminated.
The bridge consists of a line of crowns that are placed both on teeth that still exist in the mouth or are manufactured implants. It is important that sometimes the bridge require healthy teeth to be carved so that it can be adjusted. In the long term, this could lead to a loss of firmness in the grip.
Another condition that usually occurs with the bridge is that, over time, the bone loss occurs due to the lack of dental root, which results in a reduction of the gum, causing gaps between the gum, and the bridge.
They are versatile, since they can be placed on the implant or on a natural tooth. They require a significant filing of the surface of the healthy tooth so that it can be implanted correctly.
It fulfils the functions of chewing, as well as those related to aesthetics one of its great advantages is that they adapt naturally to the mouth and the patient does not have the sensation of being loaded with prosthesis. According to the economic possibilities of the patients, the metal that will form the crown is chosen. One of the most chosen is zir conium.
It is the prosthesis that replaces all the upper or lower dentures of the mouth. They can replace only the teeth, such as the teeth together with the gum. They are placed on implants to ensure a firm hold that gives security to the person.
The appearance they provide is completely natural they are designed to reduce the pressure of the forest of chewing. They are very easy to maintain, since the professional can remove them at any time, perform the corresponding repair a place them. This allows to replace the acrylic or the teeth in a practical way and without complications or discomfort to the patient.
