To replace missing teeth we offer permanent replacements (crowns, bridges, veneers), removable dentures and combined works (telescopes, bolts, latches).
We lose our teeth for different reasons – accidents, diseases, etc. Even a single tooth loss can have an adverse effect on: remaining teeth (abrasion, movement), bone structure and temporomandibular joints.
Tooth loss means not only aesthetic discomfort but health hazard as well (i.e. digestive problems). A well-functioning body requires a complete set of teeth.
The solutions we offer are:
- permanent replacement – attached to the patient’s own teeth with dental cement,
- removable dentures,
- combined works.
Permanent replacements, which cannot be removed by a patient, provide a comfort and look of natural teeth. Among them are:
- prosthetic crowns – one tooth filling with a remaining root,
- prosthetic bridges – replacement for several missing teeth, fixed on the patient’s remaining teeth,
- veneers – used to correct poorly formed or mildly mal-positioned teeth and to restore partially broken-down teeth.
A denture is a removable prosthesis that can be taken out by the patient. They are slightly less comfortable, therefore, they are used when due to the lack or poor condition of remaining teeth permanent replacement is not an option. Among them are:
- Acrylic dentures – partial or complete;
- frame dentures (periodontal- mucous membrane prostheses) – used when too many natural teeth are missing to use a prosthetic bridge; special bolts and latches hold them in the mouth.
In some cases, when too many teeth are missing we may offer so called combined works, i.e. telescopes, bolts, latches, etc.
