Dental prostheses are devices that are used to replace or repair lost or damaged teeth. They can do a lot more than just brighten your grin. A lost tooth might impair your chewing abilities and increase your risk of gum disease. A lost tooth can potentially harm the bone health of the jaw and jeopardize the health of adjacent teeth. Fixed dental appliances, including crowns and implants, are available, as are removable devices, such as complete or partial dentures, which may be removed as required. Prótesis dental Barcelona (Dental Veneers Service in Barcelona) strives to guarantee that if a tooth is lost, we have the option of replacing it with a dental prosthesis.
Crowns for the teeth
A dental crown is a new shell that replaces a broken tooth. Metal or porcelain crowns are available. Crowns are often appropriate long-term remedies for chipped, broken, or worn-down teeth. However, teeth that require extensive restoration are at a substantially higher risk of failure, according to a 2018 study. Getting a crown usually necessitates two appointments. In a conventional dental crown procedure, a dentist will:
- Make a soft impression of your teeth.
- If necessary, fill in any cavities that have formed in the injured tooth.
- Trim the tooth to get it ready for a crown.
Implanted dental bridge
A dental implant is one option for replacing a lost tooth, performed by Prótesis dental Barcelona. This is inserted into the jawbone and maintained in place while new bone material develops around it.
The following is a typical dental implant procedure:
- First, an implant (a screw-like device) is put into the jawbone.
- The dentist may place an abutment to support the crown. If the bone around the implant has to recover first, the abutment will be inserted after a few months.
- A crown is glued to the abutment to match the neighbouring teeth.
Dentures are prosthetic devices that fit securely against the gums and operate and appear like real teeth. They’re also known as “fake teeth.” The degree of your tooth loss, as well as your personal preferences, can assist in determining which type of denture is ideal for you. The following are the most prevalent forms of dentures:
- Complete dentures replace all of your teeth and must be cleaned on a regular basis.
- Removable partial dentures replace parts of your teeth but not all of them.
- Implant-supported bridges are another name for fixed partial dentures.
- Dentures that are implant-retained must be removed every day for cleaning.
