Prosthodontics or dental prosthetics is a collective name for many types of prosthetic supplements which replace lost teeth or restore the function and aesthetics of existing teeth. These include dentures, dental bridges, crowns and veneers.

What prosthetic solutions are there?

The role of dental prosthetics is to restore the aesthetic and functional properties of teeth that are damaged, broken and changed in colour, that is, replacement of teeth that have fallen out or have been taken out.

The solutions offered by dental prosthetics are divided into mobile and fixed prosthetic solutions.

Mobile prosthetic solutions are those that patients can take out and put back in place themselves, whereas fixed prosthetic solutions are permanently attached and can be removed and returned by the dentist, for example, for repair.

According to this definition, we differentiate between full and partial dentures, dental bridges, dental crowns and veneers.

Advantages of dental prosthetics

  • Price
  • When it comes to replacing lost teeth, dental prosthetics is in many cases the most favourable solution in terms of price.
  • No surgery
  • In addition, the installation of dental prosthetics is far less invasive than, for example, dental implants, since it does not require surgical procedures.
  • Shorter period of recovery
  • This also means that recovery after dental prosthetics is incomparably shorter. This makes it a much faster solution for the lack of teeth than installation of dental implants.

Prosthetic solutions for replacement of one tooth

If a tooth suffers serious structural damage and can no longer perform its function, we can reconstruct it with a dental crown, veneer, ceramic inlay, onlay or overlay.

Prosthetic solutions for replacement of several teeth

If a patient is missing several teeth in a row, we will replace them with a dental bridge.

It is a prosthetic solution consisting of several dental crowns connected into one dental prosthesis. Read more about the dental bridge on our website “Replacing several teeth”.

Prosthetic solutions for replacement of all teeth

A lack of a large number of teeth at multiple places in the jaw can be compensated by a partial denture.

And finally, if a patient misses all teeth of one jaw or the remaining teeth are no longer able to perform their function, dental prosthetics offers a solution in the form of a full denture.

Materials for dental prosthetics

Materials used for dental prosthetics are: several types of ceramics, acrylic and PEEK (polyether ether ketone) plastic, titanium, stainless steel, but also metal alloys such as wironit, which, for example, strengthen dental prostheses.

Due to the fact that dental prosthetics is one of the oldest branches of dentistry, all these materials have been thoroughly examined both through practical use and scientific studies.

Therefore, we can confirm that these are not only materials that have the required physical, chemical and aesthetic properties, but that they have also been proven biocompatible and harmless for human health.

You can find a detailed overview of the materials and a description of their use on our website “Replacing one tooth”, “Replacing several teeth” and “Replacing all teeth”.
