Nutrition is our most basic need throughout our lives and we meet this need by eating and chewing food.
Our teeth play an important role in the chewing function. Partial or total tooth loss over time affects not only chewing and speech functions, but also aesthetics and mood.
The resulting tooth losses are eliminated with different prosthesis types depending on the amount of loss:
It is the general term used to describe crown and bridge prosthesis. It is the most preferred type of prosthesis in terms of function in tooth deficiencies.
It is used in the sense that the patient can put on and take off the prosthesis made to replace missing teeth. This type of prosthesis must receive support from the soft tissues surrounding the teeth as well as the remaining teeth in the mouth.
It is a prosthesis applied when all teeth are missing.
Precision Retainer Prosthesis
It is another type of prosthesis used in partial tooth deficiencies. The retention of the prosthesis is provided not by clasps as in partial dentures, but by female and male parts called sensitive connection. These prostheses are far superior to classical partial dentures in terms of aesthetics, retention and health.
