Fixed dentures for themselves explain their essence. They are fixed in the mouth so that the patient can not independently be taken away. And it is not necessary, because they invented it to offset the defect dentition with maximum comfort for the patient - and forgot to put on! The only condition for the manufacture of such prostheses is, in fact, the presence of the tooth root and supporting tooth in the case of bridges.
Types of fixed dentures
For fixed constructions in the field of dental prosthetics include:
- veneers and Lumineers.
Crowns are made of different materials. The most modern types of crowns include cermet and ceramic crowns. Crowns are fixed on both crowns partially destroyed, which originally filled the defects seals and the teeth having roots only. In such cases, the canal of the tooth is put copings, which performs the function of a basis for a crown. In cases of complete absence of the tooth using non-removable dentures on implants. Each type has advantages and disadvantages, but the main thing - it helps to solve the problem of masticatory function and aesthetic defects.
Bridges is a more complex structure, consisting of several bits, one or two of which support and are attached to the neighboring teeth from the defect. In the middle, on the place of the missing tooth is attached artificial tooth, which is difficult to distinguish from the present. Bridges non-removable dentures have a long life and give in to repair if necessary.
Veneers and Lumineers are thin ceramic plates, often used to correct aesthetic defects front
They made all kinds of laboratory method. That is, this process is not a one. In the first visit, the doctor explains to the patient what non-removable dentures is best in a particular situation, and begins preparation for prosthetics. Usually it is healing and support the affected teeth, root canal cleansing, if necessary. Then the doctor makes prints and sends them to the laboratory, where the dental technician produces the prosthesis.
