PROSTHODONTICS

Dental prosthetics includes fabrication of dental restorations that replace one or more teeth and thus establish normal dental function and aesthetics.
Dental prosthetics, which can be fixed to the existing teeth or dental implants are prosthetic substitutes; that part of dental prosthetics called fixed prosthodontics. Examples include veneers, crowns, bridges and fixed solutions on implants. Dental prosthetics, which can be removed from the mouth are called mobile prosthetics; that part of dental prosthetics called removable prosthodontics. Examples include implant-supported dentures, partial dentures and complete dentures.
Combined prosthodontics is a combination of fixed and removable prosthetic restorations – denture attached to crown or bridge.

Dental work Guarantee
Veneer is a thin porcelain laminate used to restore discoloured, damaged, misshapen or misaligned teeth. It requires minimal reduction of the tooth surface, so it adheres to a tooth perfectly. The material the veneers are made from is completely biocompatible, highly aesthetic and act as natural teeth. The reaction of the gums is minimal because a veneer goes all the way up to the gum line unlike the metal-ceramic, where a crown goes underneath the gums. The strength of the veneers made from new press ceramic materials (E-max) is excellent. Reduction of teeth is minimal (only 0,5-0,7 mm). Considering the maintenance, plaque builds up less on veneers than on a natural tooth and removal of plaque is much more easier due to its smoother surface. We offer 5 year guarantee on veneers, although they last up to about 15 years.
A CROWN - fixed prosthodontics restoration that replaces missing coronal tooth structure. It's also known as the ''cap''. It's like a special sleeve that goes over a tooth, reminding of a cap.
It's being used in following cases:
  1. After root canal treatment (after a superstructure has been made)
  2. When a tooth crown changes colour or darkens
  3. When a tooth has large fillings that can't solve the problem of aesthetics When a tooth cracks (dental trauma)
  4. In combination with removable prosthesis

Types of crowns


E-Max crown (type of all-ceramic crown made from press ceramic) that completely imitates the real tooth. Its transparent colour and a lifelike shape, biocompatibility and minimal tooth reduction are the main characteristics. This type of crown is very popular among all Hollywood actors. The disadvantage of this crown is that it can't be used for large span bridges. It's used for single crowns and bridges with only one tooth missing (3-unit dental bridges).

Zirconia ceramic crown (all-ceramic crown made from porcelain fused to zirconia core) also completely imitates the natural teeth, but it's less translucent than E-Max crown. The zirconia crown are increasingly replacing the metal-ceramic crowns. It's used for large spans (when several teeth are missing). Due to advanced technology and materials, it can be used in combination with zirconia abutments and on implants. This type of crown doesn't release metals and doesn't compromise the bioesthetics even in case of gum recession when small areas of the root surface are exposed.

Metal-ceramic with schulter (porcelain fused to metal construction with approx. 0.5-1 mm of metal along the edge of crown replaced with specially robust ceramic in order to cover the black metal edge along gingiva). Classical metal-ceramic crown (porcelain fused to metal construction). The disadvantage is that the metal base begins to appear around the gum line in case of receding gums. Also, the metal from the crown can make the gums appear grey. This discoloration can't be removed neither by replacing a metal crown with a non-metal crown. Therefore it's recommended to use non metal ceramic crown or metal ceramic crown with schulter for the front dental area.

Veneered metal crown (porcelain is fused to metal construction only on its front side, while on the back side there is metal) is not completely aesthetic because from certain angles (for example when the patient laughs and throws the head back) this metal from the back side of teeth can be visible. The advantage is that together with the metal of the crown an anchor (link) can be made by which the ceramic crown is attached to removable wironit dentures. These ceramic crowns have lower price and can be used as temporary crowns during long-term therapies, for example implant-prosthetic therapies.

Temporary crown (a crown made from composite resin or acrylates used as a temporary solution until the patient gets the real crowns). It's cemented temporarily to reduced teeth until the permanent crowns are made. It can be removed without any problem. Sometimes these temporary crowns may remain in the mouth for several months if the therapy is long and complex.

A bridge is fixed prosthodontics work replacing the loss of a large number of teeth. It's being fixed inside the mouth over reshaped teeth. It can be made from zirconia ceramic crowns, metal ceramic crowns with ceramic shoulder, traditional metal ceramic crowns, crowns on gold, veneer-like metal ceramic crowns. When planning the fabrication of a bridge, it's important to strictly follow the rules and to make a sufficient number of carriers that could support the whole structure. Otherwise, this whole construction could break due to the influence of masticatory forces and teeth carriers of bridge could be damaged. I

NLAY, ONLAY AND OVERLAY (PARTIAL CROWNS)

Fixed prosthetic work replacing the missing coronal part of a tooth structure, depending on size (one, two, three or more dental surfaces). They are often used in the back teeth, especially in cases when it's necessary to raise the bite in order to leave a space for increasing the length of worn down front teeth. Then in laboratory with the aid of the device that imitate the movement of the jaw (articulator) the ''cusps'' of the teeth are made, that later determine the sliding movements during biting and mastication. Inlays are used in cases when a tooth crown is heavily damaged and when it's necessary to make large fillings.

The advantages of this method are:
  • operative field long enough to make a filling
  • the material doesn't contract and fits perfectly
  • the strength of the restoration because it's made from one part
  • high aesthetics and function
  • precise fabrication
  • better fabrication conditions
  • reduced possibility of marginal cracks because during its placement into mouth 
  • safer replacing of a missing tooth structure, especially when it's hard to obtain a dry
  • compared to traditional fillings their lifespan is doubled.
Mobile dentures can be removed and reinserted by the patient. Depending on the number of missing teeth replaced with prosthesis, there are complete or partial prostheses and depending on the material there are acrylate or wironit prostheses. Mobile dentures are indicated when is not possible to do fixed prosthodontics work. It is easier to clean these dentures with special hygiene products.

COMPLETE DENTURE – replaces all missing teeth in upper and/or lower jaw. In upper jaw it sticks directly to mucous membranes and its retention is aided by vacuum, while in lower jaw it sticks to mucous membranes by force of gravity and by using the area of oral cavity where there is no muscle activity that could detach it from its base. Complete dentures are made of acrylates.

PARTIAL DENTURE – replaces the missing teeth in both jaws in situation when it's impossible to create a bridge or when there are no teeth that could serve as bridge carriers and implant can't be placed (due to health or financial reasons). Partial dentures can be made of acrylate or wironit.

COMBINED PROSTHODONTICS is a combination of fixed and removable prosthetic restorations with specials links – attachments – anchors worked into bridge and prosthesis. These links are invisible inside the mouth. Anchors operate on the principle of locking segments (key-keyways) that stabilize the prosthesis. Such works provide better aesthetics and function of partial prosthesis because a this type of prosthesis is stabilized inside the mouth and there are no visible hooks that hold the denture. The dentures with these links are more expensive and their fabrication takes much more time, but patients' satisfaction, from aesthetic and functional point of view, results in their wide use in modern prosthodontics.

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES
The problem of retention and stabilization of complete dentures can be solved by placing implants in the jawbone that serve as attachments. These attachments can be placed also in an already fabricated complete denture without making a new one. Usually 2 implants are inserted into the lower jawbone. These implants have special links that attach the denture to implants. Also, these 2 implants can be connected with an anchorage bar used for additional stabilization of the denture. The result is an excellent stability and immobility of denture.
