Dentures, crowns, bridges, ect.

Prosthesis is the action to restore a balanced masticatory when one, several or all teeth are missing. One reason may be that teeth were attacked and destroyed so badly by caries or periodontal diseases, that they had to be removed. Accidents or natural agnesis of teeth may also be the cause.

Dentures

Dentures are necessary, both to restore the chewing function and to avoid possible harmful effects. This can cause damage to the remaining teeth, the tempormandibular joints, the jaw point and the muscles of mastication.

Bridges

Conventional bridges are made ​​less and less. The trend is clearly going towards the single-tooth replacement. They try to avoid a complex and complicated prosthetic solution – which means large bridge structures on natural teeth. In addition, dental implants prevent the polishing of natural teeth.

Dentures

Today's treatment of the edentulous mandible is usually performed with implants. The implants are used to hold the prosthesis in the jaw. The maxillary prosthesis usually lasts without implants. In contrast, the mandibular prosthesis is more comfortable to wear with implants because the stability is much better.
