Dentistry materials are in rapid development. Growing in parallel is the demand for perfect and near-natural restorations. The classic prosthetic devices made from metal, metal ceramics and plastic are used less and less. Implants have meanwhile become standard in dentistry. They can help to avoid a usually removable device. In addition to which they look like the real thing.
The good thing is also that model simulations can be used to visualise the expected result. Not only can you getan idea of the later appearance of the planned restoration, but you can also introduce personal change requests. The use of highly aesthetic and all-ceramic restoration systems goes without saying.
In essence, prosthetics can be divided into three different types of care:
1. Fixed (crowns and bridges)
2. Removable (full and partial dentures)
3. Combination of 1 and 2
Combined dentures are always necessary when a fixed restoration is not possible after tooth loss and implants cannot be used for whatever reason.
Due to the many different connecting elements available, there is a wide variety of supply forms, which, however, cannot all be listed here. One of the most commonly used connecting elements are so-called telescopic crowns, which ensure a firm fit while at the same time being easy to clean. In the simplest version, these are made of metal; in the better version, some are also made of ceramic, which are extremely easy to clean or almost self-cleaning.
Implant-supported prosthetics, for which all three types of restoration are also possible, occupies a special position in this field. However, a combination of natural teeth and implants is only possible in a few cases.
However, a combination of natural teeth and implants is only possible in a few cases. In the case of a combined restoration, undesirable moments of force can act on the implants and thus place too much stress on the implant-bearing bone and possibly cause massive damage.
