Dental prosthetics is a dental branch that deals with the replacement of missing teeth or complex oral rehabilitation of dental arches.
Through dental prosthetic interventions, the dental integrity affected by injuries or degradation is restored, using the prosthetic work – dental prosthesis – fixed or mobile, individualized to the patient, dental veneers, dental crowns, inlays, dental points and complex prosthetic works on implants.
Dental prosthesis doesn’t just have to be aesthetic. Functional reconstruction is also required, which must take into account phonation (sound production), mastication (chewing) and dental occlusion to avoid bruxism (gnashing of teeth). The dentist or specialist who performs a prosthetic work must visualize the final result and be able to reproduce it.
Everything you need to know about dentures
Dental prosthetics is the specialization of dentistry that aims to reconstruct the patient’s dentition to give a balanced aesthetic and functional smile. Starting from the requirements and needs of the patient both aesthetically and functionally, TerraDent specialists will develop a personalized treatment plan.
Prosthetics may involve the following functions in the operation of oro-dento-facial reconstruction: phonation or sounds during speech, mastication and maxillofacial protection from the effects of bruxism (gnashing of teeth). Therefore, dental prosthetics play a complementary and interdisciplinary role in dentistry.
Today’s dental restorations are performed with the help of state-of-the-art technologies and with the training of a team of specialists: prosthetist, surgeon, periodontist, endodontist, or orthodontist. The technologies of our Terra Dent clinic contribute to rapid and 100% accurate diagnosis, allowing patients to view the final result before the actual intervention.
