COMPLETE \ PARTIAL DENTURES
Complete and partial dentures are a solution for cases where there are few or no teeth in the patient’s oral cavity. Complete dentures are acrylic teeth, which are supported by an acrylic skeleton in the shape of the gums
while partial dentures may have a metal or acrylic frame and rows of teeth replacing the ones missing in the patient’s cavity. In both these cases, the patients may place and remove them
on their own.
IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES
Implant supported dentures are another solution of kinetic prosthetics, where patients can remove the dentures themselves.
In contrast to complete and partial dentures, the implant supported dentures are based on implants placed in the upper and lower jaws of the patient, making their support more stable.
Crowns or caps are a treatment of immobile prosthetics. During this procedure, the patient’s tooth is externally grinded and hoops are placed throughout the exterior. They are a solution for teeth that have been damaged either due to caries,
or due to injury. The addition of crowns gives greater functionality to the patient’s teeth, but also a better aesthetic result.
In case the restoration of one or more teeth is deemed necessary, the installation of a bridge is one of the appropriate solutions of immovable prosthetics. A bridge is a series of laboratory-made teeth,
which use the adjacent teeth of those lost as points of support. It can be based either on natural or artificial teeth.
The teeth veneers or caps, are divided into two categories: the porcelain veneers and the resin veneers. Their difference lies in the material from which they are made and the different procedure followed for their placement. In both these cases, however, there are many advantages for the patient.
Veneers can restore damaged teeth, teeth with discolorations, or gaps. After the placement of veneers, the patient enjoys a pleasant aesthetic result and more functionality.
Dental implants help in cases where there is loss of one or several, even all teeth. During this procedure, implants are placed in the upper and lower patient’s jaw,
on which either immobile or mobile restorations are supported. The patient after the placement of the restoration has high functionality and aesthetics.
PEEK ENDOSTEAL IMPLANTS
In cases where the patient does not wish to add metallic material to their oral cavity, the thermoplastic composite polymer Peek is the appropriate solution. Due to its biocompatibility and mechanical properties,
Peek is a material that is preferred by more and more patients. The placement of endosteal implants is required for cases of great loss of dental substance and is the way to support the material used to restore the teeth.
