At first thought, the loss of a tooth is not a serious problem, especially if the tooth was not within the “smile line.” If you disregard the slight discomfort after the removal, you seemingly can forget about the loss. But is it really not an issue? Does the tooth removal procedure actually have no consequences? Unfortunately, the facts prove the opposite:
- First of all, the loss of a tooth reduces the efficiency of the food chewing process. This results in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract or their complications. The necessity to restore the chewing function is the main reason to resort to dental prosthetic rehabilitation.
- The neighboring teeth shift towards the place of the removed tooth, which crooks the whole dental arcade and distorts the dentition. This results in an increased risk of diseases of the periodontal apparatus.
- The most noticeable consequence of a tooth loss that reveals itself immediately after the removal is the articulation smudging.
- Even if the empty space in the place of the tooth does not really strike the eye, the person’s overall psychological state deteriorates. You feel the need to control your smile, to make sure the people around you don’t notice you lack a tooth. Thus, it results in plummeting self-esteem and social adaptation issues.
However, the complete tooth removal is not the only reason to look for dental prosthetics options. Other possible grounds are:
- Increased dental abrasion. In this case, dental prosthetics is one of the few opportunities to retain the visual appeal and restore the chewing function.
- Complete loss of the upper part of the tooth above the gum. If the patient has nothing but the tooth root – not all is lost! A Hellas Dental specialist will consult you as to the best dental prosthetics option.
- Significant damage to the tooth. Sometimes dental rehabilitation with the use of filling materials is not possible, and the dentist is forced to choose between a crown or a dental build-up (micro-prosthetics).
- Dentition defects. Modern dental prosthetics is a rapidly developing branch of dentistry, and the Hellas Dental restoration clinicians have a wide range of the most advanced tools for correcting dentition defects.
Worth noting, parodontosis does not render dental prosthetics impossible. Contrary to popular belief, this disease cannot prevent you from restoring your radiant smile.
Most dental clinics offer the services related to dental prosthetics. Odessa prices for such services are fairly affordable for patients of different incomes. However, only those who opt for the dental prosthetic services provided by Hellas Dental can fully enjoy the advantages we offer:
- For performing large volumes of prosthetic works, our clinic employs the CADIAX® diagnostic complex, which provides for detailed planning and accurate performance of orthopedic procedures.
- To be able to examine the smallest structures of the dental tissue in detail, the Hellas Dental orthopedic doctors widely employ the operating microscope. This enables them to create safe and aesthetically appealing structures with much longer service life than those installed without the use of the microscope.
Types Of Dental Prosthetics
For dentition rehabilitation, the dentist uses two main methods: restoration and prosthetics. Restoration is aimed at recreating the lost tooth with high precision; for partially damaged teeth, it’s performed in either of the following ways:
- installing dental build-ups (micro-prosthetics);
- installing special dental posts, on which artificial teeth are mounted subsequently.
Dental prosthetics proper involves a range of continuously advancing technologies:
- Removable dentures. Long gone are the times when this prosthetics type aroused nothing but pity, as the latest orthopedic achievements provide for the creation of aesthetically flawless structures with an excellent price-to-quality ratio.
- Fixed restoration using porcelain fused metal (PFM) crowns on natural teeth and dentures on implants:
- PFM crowns from a variety of metals, including semiprecious metals and biogold;
- E.MAX ceramic press system crowns;
- zirconium dioxide ceramic crowns;
- metal-free lithium disilicate ceramic crowns: durable and light; virtually indistinguishable from the patient’s own teeth;
- prosthetic bridges.
- If the patient suffers from parodontosis, the prosthetic work often requires installation of virtually invisible clasp dentures that secure the teeth;
- Non-fixed over-denture, which is attached to the neighboring teeth or the implants with demountable joints;
- 3D dental prosthetics (the CAD/CAM technology).
