Fixed dental prosthetics
Dental crown is used to replace lost or damaged crown of the natural tooth or estheticaly inadequate tooth. It can be made out of metal-ceramics, zircon-ceramics or full ceramics.
Dental bridge is used to replace one or more lost teeth. It is used when we want to fill the void between two teeth.
Mobile dental prosthetics
Complete prosthesis is made when all the teeth in the jaw are missing. The advantages of prosthesis are that it is relativly fast and easy to make, moderate price and easy oral hygiene. The main disadvantage is the mobility of the prosthesis which makes the adjustment period longer.
Partial prosthesis is made when there are few teeth missing in the jaw but the placement and number of remaining natural teeth doesn’t allow a dental bridge to be made. It can be fixated on the natural teeth or on implants.
