Prosthetics

Prosthetics

This is a branch of dentistry dealing with the reconstruction of missing teeth and the reconstruction of teeth damaged to an extent that makes conservative treatment impossible. With the help of prosthetic treatment, it is also possible to improve the aesthetics of teeth, correct slight irregularities in the alignment of teeth and their shape, and unify the color of teeth in the case of permanent discoloration.

So that patients can enjoy a beautiful smile, we offer:

Fixed dentures

Prosthetic constructions permanently fixed on the patient’s own teeth or implants.

  • all-ceramic crowns
  • crowns on zirconium oxide foundation
  • crowns on a metal foundation faced with porcelain
  • crowns on a gold-alloy foundation faced with porcelain
  • bridges on zirconium oxide substructure
  • metal-porcelain bridges
  • porcelain veneers
  • metal and gold alloy crown-root inlays

Removable dentures

restorations that the patient can freely remove from the mouth.

  • skeletal dentures
  • frame prostheses on precision parts (buckle-free)
  • duracetal dentures
  • acrylic partial dentures
  • nylon partial dentures
  • total dentures
  • dentures overdentures
  • immediate dentures

Missing teeth are not only an aesthetic problem.

First of all – the teeth are responsible for the mechanical shredding of the food, so they have an important function
in the process of digestion.

Secondly, the lack of teeth leads to serious malocclusion and has a negative impact on the temporomandibular joints.

Thirdly, extensive missing teeth make contact with others difficult, as they are the cause of poor pronunciation.

These are inlays which are modeled individually for a specific patient according to the shape of the root of the reconstructed tooth and the remains of its crown. They are characterized by a better fit to the planned prosthetic restoration than standard inlays. Thanks to this they are characterized by high mechanical strength and durability.

Unfortunately, no. In order to qualify for this type of treatment, the patient must have a properly treated root canal without inflammatory changes in the periapical region. Moreover, a tooth reinforced with a crown-root insert cannot be loosened, cracked along the root or damaged below the bone edge.

Prosthetic dentistry is a different kind of oral pathology that is a consequence of using a denture. The most common symptom of dentistry is irritation of the oral cavity mucosa, leading to gingivitis over time. The patient feels uncomfortable after putting on the denture, the gums become reddened and swollen. Over time, itching or burning appears and wearing a denture is associated with increasing pain. Sometimes fungal infections can also occur – the gums and mucous membranes of the oral cavity are then covered with a white coating, a characteristic symptom of candidosis. Prosthetic dentistry can be caused by various factors. The most common causes include those of a mechanical nature (a poorly fitted or undersized denture is pressing or irritating the gums). However, prosthetic dentistry can also be caused by a bacterial or fungal infection and an allergy to denture components (acrylic or nickel). In rare cases, the dentist may also have a psychogenic background.

If the denture is mismatched, there is increased friction against the gums, resulting in painful abrasions and bedsores. Such ailments may also occur if the denture surface has not been smoothly polished. In this case, its rough surface acts as a pumice stone and causes pain as a result of peeling off the epidermis. Sometimes pain may also be caused by metal clamps that rub against the enamel of the teeth to which the denture is attached.

Let’s remember! If the pain becomes unbearable after fitting the denture, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible. Dentures should not be worn by force, as this can hurt your gums.

You may also have a strong vomiting reflex when trying to insert a denture. To minimize this unpleasant symptom, you can rinse your mouth with cold water or suck mint candy for a while. Eating soft or chopped into small pieces of food can also help and avoiding sticky foods. However, if the vomiting reflex persists, it is worth using an anaesthetic gel (of course – after prior consultation with your dentist).
