This is the branch of odontology that restores the missing teeth, repairs damage or solves aesthetic problems, aiming for a conclusion and a correct functioning of the teeth.
Removable prosthesis on teeth or implants:
They are the prosthesis commonly known as “detachable”. Among their qualities, they are retentive and offer support and stability. Whenever possible, they can also be fixed to the teeth though hooks or attachments. They can also be anchored to implants, resulting in a very retentive prosthesis without a palate.
Fixed prosthesis on teeth or implants:
Thanks to the techniques we know nowadays, we can perform rehabilitations with fixed prosthetics on teeth or implants in over 95% of our patients, which allow us to avoid removable prostheses that are usually more uncomfortable. Bridges are what we call a prosthesis on teeth, and it consists of replacing one or several missing teeth by relying upon the adjacent teeth. It requires the grinding of the abutment teeth, and then the prosthesis is cemented to said abutments in a way that makes it completely fixed and secured in the mouth. There are multiple materials that can be used for the dental crowns or bridges that are totally biocompatible, like zirconia or alumina ceramic. These integrate perfectly among the natural tissues as they do not contain metal, so they do not cause any allergic reactions nor darken the gums due to the lack of light, and they also don’t have the unsightly metallic borders.
