Dentures

Modern dental prosthetics is a painless and effective method in orthodontics for the restoration of a tooth with partial destruction or totally absent tooth. While the absence or destruction of lateral tooth  isn't notable and does not bring  any inconvenience, in case of fron teeth it is absolutely necessary to set a prosthetic as soon as possible.

You can get a dental prothethis in the Igor Kukharyk clinic at the address: A. Dovzhenka street, 3 (metro station Shulyavskaya).

The most common reasons for prosthetics are:

  1. Untreated caries - leads to destruction of the tooth wall, which can not be restored with the help of filling;
  2. Pathological abrasion of teeth - a disease that is characterized by the rapid destruction of dental tissue. This process is accompanied by dysfunction of the masticatory muscles and the temporomandibular joint;
  3. Destroyed crown of the tooth;
  4. Absence of a tooth - from birth or as a result of surgical intervention.

To install the prosthesis, it is important to choose the right type of it. The choice of dental prosthesis in dentistry depends on the degree of tooth decay, the speed of the pathological process, the characteristics of the gums and the shape of the patient's jaw.

Types of dental prosthesis:

  1. Removable dentures. Divided into partially removable (bugle or arch dentures), conditionally removable, fully removable. Such prostheses are used for the convenience of the patient: they can be removed at any time without the help of a doctor;
  2. Fixed dentures: inlays - restore the lost part of the tooth as a result of deep caries, artificial crowns - restore the shape of only one tooth, bridges - dentition, which makes it possible to restore the shape of 3-4 teeth in a row;
  3. Combined prosthesis.

Today, prosthetics are possible even in the absence of all teeth. This procedure is called complete prosthetics and is necessary not only in aesthetic, but also in the therapeutic aspect. In this case, the prostheses rely on the gums in case of removable version (the so-called "false teeth") or on pre-installed implants in case of removable or non-removable version.

Prosthetics of the tooth occurs in 4 stages:

  1. Consultation of a dentist-orthopedist. On examination, the doctor receives data on the degree of tooth decay, other diseases of the oral cavity and the condition of the gums. At this stage, the doctor and patient choose the most appropriate type of prosthesis;
  2. Grinding a tooth under for prosthesis. At this stage, the edges of the tooth are grinded to reduce its size so that the prosthesis placed on the tooth will not interfere with the adjacent teeth;
  3. Dentist-orthopedist makes an imprint of a tooth to make an exact model of a metal-ceramic crown.
  4. Prosthesis installation.

A week after prosthetics, a dentist-orthopedist conducts an examination to rule out complications.

After installing the prosthesis, at first difficulties may arise. Therefore, be careful when chewing, so as not to bite the mucous membrane of the cheeks and gums.

If you notice increased salivation and increased gag reflex, do some deep breathing exercises through the nose. Do not breathe through your mouth, it will worsen the condition.

Do not forget to clean dentures 2 times a day and rinse the mouth after each meal.
