What is Prosthesis? Which Treatment Procedures Does it Involve?
Prosthesis is the field of dentistry that deals with artificially replacing missing or lost teeth with new ones. Fixed restorations such as crown-bridge (crowning) or removable (insertion-removal-palate) prostheses can be preferred depending on the number and location of missing teeth and also condition of the surrounding tissues. Nowadays, several types of prostheses can be made with the support of implant (titanium screw) systems developed as an alternative to natural teeth. The loss of a tooth can damage your health in many ways. The teeth in front of and behind the missing tooth bend towards this gap. The opposite tooth also extends towards the extraction space. As a result of this elongation and bending, the alignment of the teeth and their contacts with each other deteriorate. This causes accumulation of food residues and bacterial plaque between teeth. Cleaning of these areas is difficult, thus the risk of dental decay and gingival disease increases. All these problems can be prevented by replacing the lost tooth. However, the replacement of the lost tooth becomes more difficult after the neighboring teeth are bent and the opposite tooth has been elongated. Your dentist is your significant assistant in deciding which method is best suitable for you.
How many types of prosthesis treatments are there?
Prosthesis treatment is the treatment that involves most diversity. We can mainly categorize prosthesis treatment into two groups as fixed prostheses (crown, bridge, crowning, implant treatment, nailed tooth) and removable prostheses (denture-removable palate prostheses).
