What are the steps for the placement of a dental prosthesis?
The first step is to examine the mouth in order to obtain different information about the shape of the gum, the position of different structures. Next, the position of the jaw will be measured, the colour, shape, material of the teeth will be chosen depending on the general appearance of the mouth and the patient’s preferences.
Dental prostheses are made in a laboratory, so it is possible to wear a temporary prosthesis until the final one is ready.
The second step is to check the aesthetic qualities of the prosthesis, its functionality and assembly.
What are the consequences of not treating caries in time?
Untreated caries progress leading to significant losses of hard dental substance, no longer making it possible to restore the tooth with a simple filling. Even the tooth can be lost, thus appearing an edentation that can lead to masticatory inefficiency, migrations of neighbouring and antagonistic teeth, occlusion disorders, periodontal problems and last but not least a deficient aesthetic.
What are the results obtained after dental prosthetics?
Artificial teeth are made of ceramic material that can restore the shape and colour of natural teeth while retaining these qualities over time. The ceramic is made on a zirconium oxide support to increase its strength.
