Dental Prosthesis

What is Prosthesis Treatment?

Prosthetic treatment is a dental treatment applied to eliminate missing teeth and restore chewing function. Missing teeth can cause aesthetic problems and functional disorders. With prosthetic treatment, these problems are eliminated and the patient’s quality of life is increased.

Types of prosthesis are:

  • Complete denture: It is used in cases where all teeth in the mouth are missing.
  • Partial denture: It is used in cases where one or more teeth in the mouth are missing.
  • Fixed dentures: These are dentures that are attached to the teeth and can be removed.
  • Removable prosthesis: These are prostheses that can be installed and removed by the patient.

The stages of prosthesis treatment are:

  • Examination and diagnosis: The dentist determines the cause and extent of missing teeth by examining the patient’s teeth and gums.
  • Planning: Which type of prosthesis will be used and the treatment plan are determined.
  • Prosthesis making: The prosthesis is prepared by the dentist or dental technician.
  • Rehearsal and delivery: The prosthesis is attached to the patient and necessary adjustments are made.
  • Check-ups: It is important to go for regular dentist check-ups after the prosthesis treatment is completed.

The advantages of prosthesis treatment are:

  • It eliminates missing teeth: Prostheses solve the aesthetic and functional problems caused by missing teeth.
  • Restores chewing function: With prostheses, patients can chew and feed easily.
  • Improves speech function: Missing teeth can cause speech disorders. These disorders are corrected with prostheses.
  • It improves the quality of life: With prosthesis treatment, patients’ self-confidence and quality of life increase.

The disadvantages of prosthetic treatment are:

  • Adaptation process: Patients may have difficulty getting used to the prosthesis at first.
  • Maintenance: Dentures require regular maintenance and cleaning.
  • Cost: The cost of prosthetic treatment varies depending on the type of prosthesis and the materials used.

If you are considering denture treatment, it is important to consult your dentist. Your dentist will evaluate the condition of your teeth and determine the most suitable type of prosthesis for you.
