There are two types of applications, movable and fixed. These applications are determined by the number of missing teeth.
SECTIONAL PROSTHESIS APPLICATIONS
Prosthesis applications are determined by the number of missing teeth in the patient’s mouth. They are prostheses that have a metal body in order to fill the missing teeth and are supported by metal wires (crochets) from existing teeth. They can be inserted and removed.
With these prostheses, natural teeth are prevented from slipping. Because, if the missing teeth are not filled, the movement starts in the teeth towards the gaped side; In this way, they are both difficult to brush and exposed to unwanted loads.
It is very important to complete the missing teeth in terms of speech function, chewing function and aesthetically.
Depending on missing teeth, gum problems on the unused side, and decay in the teeth due to the formation of bacterial plaque, it is very common to see problems related to excessive load on the used side.
PRECISION CONNECTED PROSTHESIS
Again, in regional tooth deficiencies, they are prostheses that are not used with clasps, which are more aesthetic, have better retention and use. These are also called “snap-on prostheses”.
Sliding or snap systems provide retention in these prostheses, but these systems are more expensive than other systems.
Bu protezlerde tutuculuğu sürgü veya çıtçıt sistemleri sağlar, ancak bu sistemler diğer sistemlere göre daha pahalıdır.
These are prostheses applied in cases where all teeth of the patient are extracted. Support is provided from the tissue, and its use is more difficult than all prostheses. It is also called “denture” or “full palate”.
In patients with very few teeth, telescope prostheses can be made according to the decision of the physician. Implant alternatives are available for complete tooth deficiencies.
