Prosthetic dentistry is a part of the dental medicine which treats teeth damages and defects teeth rows, crowns, bridges and dentures (partial and total). A successful treatment restores the chewing function of the patient (the patient can eat food properly), the speech and the esthetics..
Crowns are necessary in those cases when a tooth is so severe damaged that it can’t be restored with a filling. Or there is already a very big filling on the tooth and it is at risk of cracking or breaking. Crowns are placed and cemented over the teeth and they can’t be removed. They restore the form, shape and color of the tooth, as well as its normal function.
Bridges are necessary when there is one or more than one missing teeth and the free space of the damage is surrounded by stable teeth. The bridges are also placed and cemented over the teeth and they can’t be removed. They have the same function as crowns.
Dentures can be total and partial. Total dentures are used in cases when there are no teeth in the oral cavity. They should be taken out of the mouth of the patient after every meal and they should be cleaned.
Partial dentures are used when a bigger amount of teeth is missing in the mouth of the patient and when the loss of teeth is so severe that it can’t be restored by a bridge construction.Partial dentures are fixed to the teeth through clasps or other mechanisms. Just like total dentures, they should also be taken out of the mouth after every meal and they should be cleaned. It’s recommended that patients leave their dentures during the night in a cup of water, before they go to bed. Patients should never sleep at night with their dentures in their mouth.
