A dental prosthesis is a dental application that replaces a missing tooth or closes tooth defects. These are solutions such as implants, crowns, bridges. Dentures can be covered. Some can be removed, while others can be permanently fixed in your mouth. If you think you could benefit from a denture, your dentist or prosthodontist can explain the most effective option for your dental needs.
How is a dental prosthesis made?
To perform dentures, your dentist will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and oral cavity and take a dental X-ray of the teeth used for dentures. This allows your dentist to provide a great-looking denture that supports the remaining teeth, allows you to eat and talk normally, and. In the next step, the dentist takes an impression of the existing teeth, usually by asking you to mold them. They then send the mold to the dental laboratory. According to Dentistry Decisions, dental prostheses can be made of various materials such as porcelain, composite resin, acrylic and zirconia.
Once applied, the placement procedure depends on which denture you receive. To place implants, your dentist must surgically place a titanium fixture (post) into your bone and then wait a few months before placing the prosthesis to ensure the implant is properly placed and secured to the bone. If you are getting a crown, bridge, or veneer, your dentist may remove or abrade some of the tooth surface to prepare it for the denture. Dentures need to be checked to make sure they fit snugly and comfortably in your mouth.
Dentures can help patients feel more confident by replacing missing teeth or making discolored or damaged teeth look more attractive.
