Dental Prosthetics and Their Types: Esthetic and Functional Solutions to Complete Your Smile

Dental prosthetics are aesthetic and functional solutions used to replace missing teeth or repair damaged teeth. Dental prosthetics allow patients to lead their daily lives comfortably and achieve healthy smiles. In this article, you can find detailed information about dental prosthetics and their types.

Objectives of Dental Prosthetics

Dental prosthetics serve different purposes, such as repairing missing or damaged teeth, providing an aesthetic appearance, and improving chewing function. Dental prosthetics are used in the following cases:

Tooth Loss: Dental prosthetics are used to replace missing teeth when one or multiple teeth are lost.

Tooth Damage: Dental prosthetics are used to repair cracked, chipped, or severely decayed teeth.

Aesthetic Appearance: Dental prosthetics are used to correct color, shape, and size issues in teeth and achieve an aesthetic smile.

Types of Dental Prosthetics

Dental prosthetics can be produced in various types according to different conditions and needs. Here are commonly used types of dental prosthetics:

Fixed Prosthetics: Fixed prosthetics, such as porcelain veneers, dental bridges, and dental implants, are used to permanently replace missing teeth. These high-quality and durable prosthetics provide a natural tooth appearance.

Removable Prosthetics: Full or partial removable prosthetics are used to complete missing teeth. Removable prosthetics can be taken out and put back in and are used in emergencies or when dental implants are not applicable.

Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of teeth to correct color, shape, and size issues. They are known for providing a natural tooth appearance and durability.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth. Implants made of titanium are placed into the jawbone and function like natural tooth roots.

Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are used when one or multiple teeth are lost, and they rely on adjacent teeth for support.

Dental Prosthetic Application Process

The dental prosthetic application process is determined based on the patient's needs and the dentist's recommendations. This process generally includes the following steps:

Examination and Planning: The dentist evaluates the patient's oral structure and determines the most suitable type of prosthetic.

Preparation: Necessary measurements and impressions are taken for the dental prosthetic.

In the process of preparing full dentures, temporary provisional prosthetics may be used.
