Estediş Oral and Dental Health Prosthesis Treatment
Dental prosthesis treatment is the process of replacing the esthetic and chewing function with biocompatible materials as a result of the loss of teeth in the mouth for various reasons (caries, gum disease, etc.). In general, tooth loss can be caused by untreated caries and gum diseases. In addition, some accidents result in tooth losses. Therefore, instead of the tooth lost, a dental prosthesis must be performed to meet the functional and aesthetic need.
What is the Purpose of Dental Prosthesis Treatment?
While trying to regain the lost functions of the patient, it is also aimed to correct the impaired speech and improve the aesthetic appearance of the patient. The function of individuals with aesthetic problems such as speaking and laughing is also affected by this disorder. This can lead to impaired self-esteem, as well as functional disorders. It is a fact that the treatments applied to these individuals increase the quality of life.
Types of Dental Prosthesis
- Fixed Prosthetics (crown-bridge-like glued prostheses)
- Movable Prosthetics (total or partial dentures)
- Implants (fixed or movable)
- Fixed Prosthetics
- Fixed dentures
- Single crowns (single tooth coating)
- Movable Prosthetics
- Total prostheses (It is applied to non-toothed mouths. Used in later ages)
- Partial prostheses (partially applied to the mouths without teeth. Hooks or nails on the teeth called crochet are used)
- Prosthetic prosthesis (Metal-supported prostheses with non-hooked mouths)
- Implant Abutments
- Fixed (porcelain crowns applied to one or more teeth)
- Movable (total-like dentures applied to completely toothless mouths)
How to clean them?
The first choice in dental prosthesis cleaning, whether stationary or not , is cleaning with brush and paste. Cleaning of removable prostheses is done with a number of cleaning agents and materials. Cleaning can be achieved by an effervescent tablet placed in water. In addition, removable dentures can be removed from the mouth and cleaned after replacing the existing teeth in the mouth.
In addition, parts of the gums left under the coatings that are fixed with products such as interface brushes and dental flosses should also be cleaned as prescribed and recommended by the dentist. Attention to cleanliness is important in terms of the health of the teeth in the mouth and the prolongation of dental prosthesis use.
Laminate veneers, like plastic-resin bonding, cover stained and damaged teeth. Usually made of porcelain, laminate veneers are cemented onto the surface of teeth to give the tooth a smooth, complete surface and a natural shine. The material used for laminate veneers is extremely thin, preventing the bulkiness that can be a problem with plastic resin. Significantly stronger than plastic bonding resin, laminate veneers last approximately 10 to 15 years.
How does the process occurs ?
The implementation of the process is very simple. First of all, measurements are taken from the patient and a sample model is done in the laboratory. The patient sees the end stage of this model before the teeth are cut. Then, the teeth are prepared with a painless procedure. Once the main measure is taken, the temporary veneer is adhered. This ensures that the teeth are protected from external influences.
In the laboratory, final model is formed and porcelain lamina are prepared. It is adhered to the teeth with a special technique and the material called adhesive resin. It is not possible to separate the lamina from the tooth as a result of the bonding process. They are therefore very resistant to breakage.
