Dental Prosthetics

Dental prosthetics improve the quality of life by restoring adequate chewing function and preventing additional health problems such as modification of remaining teeth and temporomandibular dysfunction. They also enhance your appearance and boost your confidence.


Those who still have healthy teeth may benefit from partial prostheses made of metal and acrylic or entirely of acrylic, which are typically less durable. Complete dentures are another option that can be maintained by suction.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace missing teeth and tissue for improved oral health. They also improve chewing and speech. The implant is made of titanium, a durable material that fuses with your natural bone. This creates a strong foundation for overlying crowns that are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth.

The implant’s metal post is surgically inserted into your jawbone. The screw-shaped implant is then covered with gum tissue to heal and prepare it for the overlying prosthesis. The healing process can take weeks to months. During this time, you may wear a temporary prosthesis.

Implants can be permanent or removable, depending on your preference and treatment plan. During your consultation, your dentist will explain your options and help you choose the best option for you. They will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and take X-rays to ensure that the dental prosthesis you need is safe for your oral health. They will also discuss the benefits of a prosthesis and how it can improve your life. In addition to replacing missing teeth, a dental prosthesis can make discolored or damaged teeth appear more attractive and protect your remaining healthy teeth from further damage.


Crowns are coverings for damaged teeth, usually larger ones like molars. They are long-lasting and, with proper care, can last 15 years or more.

A crown is fixed onto a natural tooth with dental cement, and it covers the top of the tooth to protect it from further damage. A crown can also be used to replace a missing tooth. It is often recommended for patients who have severe tooth decay or other structural issues.

To create a crown, a photo of your tooth is taken inside the mouth to construct a virtual design model without the need for impressions. The data is then sent to an on-site milling unit which fabricates the restoration out of a block of porcelain material. This process is completed while you rest in the dental chair and the crown is checked for fit and minor adjustments are made before it is permanently cemented into place.

Crowns can be built with a variety of materials including metal-backed porcelain crowns, all-porcelain crowns on zirconium substructures, and metal crowns. For front teeth, we prefer to use porcelain as it is aesthetically pleasing and durable.


If you’re missing a single tooth or have several teeth that are severely damaged and decayed, bridges can be an excellent choice. They offer the same benefits as implants, but are a simpler procedure that doesn’t require surgery and costs significantly less.

Bridges are made up of two dental crowns with a fake tooth or teeth between them. They can be used by themselves or in conjunction with implants, which are known as implant-supported bridges. The anchor teeth on the sides of the bridge are known as abutment teeth.

Dental bridges fill the gap of missing teeth, help make biting easier and prevent natural teeth on either side from shifting out of place. They are also extremely long-lasting and blend in well with your natural teeth, so they look like a real tooth. They can also prevent the gums from receding, which could lead to further tooth loss in the future.


Dentures are removable dental prostheses that cover gums and remaining teeth. They can replace numerous missing teeth in your upper or lower jaw and improve the look of your smile. But they can accelerate bone loss in your jaw because they rub against the underlying bone ridge, which eventually wears away and leaves you with a sunken-in appearance.

For people with many or all of their natural teeth missing, the most suitable replacement is a bridge that consists of two crowns on either side of an artificial tooth (pontics). The pontic is supported by your existing teeth and fills in the gap left by a missing tooth.

If the available bone is insufficient for an implant, a procedure known as a sinus lift or augmentation can raise the floor of your maxillary sinus to make more space for an implant. Once adequate and strong bone is present, an implant can be fitted. A dental implant consists of a titanium fixture that bonds with the jawbone and a connector post — known as an abutment — that holds a false tooth or teeth.

Clasp Prosthesis

The frame of this type of removable denture consists of metal telescopic clasps – cast metal hooks, which “hold on” to defect supporting teeth. They are also used in partial plate prostheses. Before attaching a clasp, the orthopedist grinds (prepares) the supporting teeth and covers them with crowns.

The advantage of clasp dentures is that there is no need to grind abutment teeth, which makes it possible to save them. Moreover, the structure is able to distribute a chewing load in a special way, so that it does not impose excessive stress on abutment teeth.

However, if the fixation is loose or one of the clasps breaks, it can cause discomfort while eating and talking, and it may even lead to loss of the prosthesis. To prevent this, you should have it repaired as soon as possible by a qualified specialist. This will restore the comfort of use of your dental prosthesis, as well as protect the supporting crowns from caries and periodontal disease. It will also improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
