All of these terms, which are called porcelain teeth, crowns, bridges, nail teeth, implant teeth, dentures, palate, hook teeth, are all services of this branch. In other words, it is the biggest dentistry branch.
Prosthetic Dental Treatments and Crown Bridges (Dental Prostheses) prevent impaired tooth closure, decay and tooth loss.
They apply laminate veneers, zirconium porcelains, empress porcelains, in short, metal-free porcelains, which are widely used in aesthetic dentistry.
If we need to make a classification here, we can examine the prosthesis in 3 parts:
Porcelain crowns – bridges
Metal-free aesthetic porcelains
Postcore (a nail is applied into the poscore tooth) prostheses
Complete palate prostheses
Precision attachment dentures
Overdenture prostheses (using the roots of the teeth
Implant (nail tooth-tooth extraction) Prostheses
Removable dentures on implants
Fixed dentures on implants
In fixed prosthesis methods, which have been applied until today, the durability of metals as the infrastructure and the aesthetics of ceramics as the superstructure were used while creating the prosthesis. Although this method is still used, fixed prosthesis applications that can mimic the natural appearance with many different materials have now been added to clinical solutions with the developing technology to meet the increasing aesthetic needs.

Bridge: In case of missing one or more teeth, it is the process of minimizing the neighboring teeth and filling the interstitial spaces by getting support from the special coatings that come to them.
As with the veneer, the teeth to be taken as support by your dentist are shaped and made by performing the same procedures.
Precious Metal Alloy Applications
In these prostheses, precious metal alloys containing gold are used as valuable infrastructure materials. Aesthetics in the upper structure are also provided by ceramic applications. These alloys are special mixtures for dentistry. . Gold is one of the most precious materials used in dentistry, compatible with teeth and gums. Therefore, healthier results are obtained with applications using precious metals.
Zirconium is now being used as a porcelain infrastructure.
Standard Metal Alloy Applications
In these prostheses, metals special to dentistry are used as infrastructure that are compatible with dental tissues, have the necessary durability and can maintain health. As a superstructure, dental ceramic is used to provide an aesthetic appearance. Standard metal alloy fixed prostheses can be applied to all teeth. Now they give very successful results as classical methods.
Caries or other reasons, excessive loss of substance,
Discolored and irreversible teeth,
Weak root canal treatment teeth (to prevent teeth from breaking),
On the implant
The cleaning of your prostheses is very important in terms of longevity. Especially all gum edges of the supporting teeth of the prosthesis should be brushed very well.
You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. This cleansing process will remove plaque from bacteria. The most important point in this matter is to clean the plaques in the area where your teeth and gums meet (sulcus). To avoid breaking or damaging the crowns, it is necessary to avoid chewing hard food and objects. Again, as in any case, you should visit your dentist routinely and have it checked.
In the prosthesis, it is aimed to restore the lost functions of the patient as well as to correct the impaired speech and to improve the aesthetic appearance.
While the oral health lost by prosthesis applications is improved, individuals who have to live with missing or destroyed teeth in the community are also psychologically supported. This causes a decrease in self-confidence in people as well as functional impairments.
Throughout the years, as a result of people eating, chewing, swallowing and grinding teeth for some reasons at night, teeth wear at different rates. In addition, caries and accidents occur in some parts of the teeth. In such cases, the lost structures of the teeth are replaced with prostheses called crowns or bridges.
Standard metal or precious metal alloys can be used as infrastructure in a fixed prosthesis.
If the bridge is not made, the adjacent teeth of the patient and the opposite tooth in the other jaw move towards the extraction space. For this reason, impaired tooth closure leads to decays and tooth loss.
When tooth loss occurs for any reason, neighboring teeth begin to move towards this gap. As a result, gingival problems in the adjacent teeth, bone loss due to tipping into this cavity, deterioration in aesthetics and changes in chewing forces occur. If this gap is not restored with an implant or bridge for a long time, there may be losses in these neighboring teeth.
Other problems that arise as a result of missing teeth and not having a prosthesis are digestive disorders and diseases caused by chewing deficiency. We can count as speech disorders and aesthetic problems according to the location of the missing tooth.
Fixed prostheses, also known as bridges, crowns and veneers, are prostheses that are applied in the absence of a small number of teeth in the mouth and are prepared in the laboratory and adhered to the teeth by cutting (reducing) the supporting teeth. They are prostheses that are made instead of the visible parts of the teeth in the mouth and cannot be removed by the patient.
It is accepted more easily by the patient than the removable prosthesis, but there must be some conditions for it to be applied. Following the preparation and measurement of the teeth, the procedure is completed in 3-4 sessions and 1 week.
There are various types of prosthesis including metal-supported ceramic (porcelain), metal-free ceramic (porcelain), porcelain laminate.
The most suitable for your mouth will be determined by your physician.
