WHAT ARE TRADITIONAL FIXED PROSTHESES?
Fixed prostheses are the prostheses made without the use of implants in order to restore the old function, phonation or aesthetics to the patient in cases where there are teeth that have suffered excessive loss of material that cannot be treated with filling or in cases where there are several missing teeth in the mouth, provided that the last molars are not missing. Today, when we think of traditional fixed prostheses, we think of metal-supported porcelain prostheses, commonly known as veneers.
IN WHICH CASES ARE TRADITIONAL FIXED PROSTHESES APPLIED?
In cases where we need to preserve dental tissue and keep the tooth in function for a long time in cases of large decay or broken teeth that cannot be treated with filling, we can prefer these prostheses in the treatment of shape and position disorders in the teeth, in the treatment of bite disorders, in the treatment of tooth deficiencies, in preparation for removable prostheses and in the placement of retaining elements for precision connected prostheses.
HOW ARE TRADITIONAL FIXED PROSTHESES APPLIED?
The tooth or teeth to be treated with a fixed prosthesis are abraded under water cooling to prepare a place for the prosthesis. An impression is taken from inside the mouth to take our finalized teeth into production. In the technician laboratories, a model is created with this impression and the metal infrastructure that provides the durability of the prosthesis and the aesthetic porcelain part on the metal infrastructure are processed. Our treatment is completed by fixing the prepared prostheses on the teeth with special adhesives called cement.
WHAT DO WE AIM FOR IN TREATMENT WITH TRADITIONAL FIXED PROSTHESES?
With traditional fixed prostheses, we aim to support and protect teeth with excessive material loss, to eliminate the problems that may occur due to tooth deficiencies by eliminating tooth deficiencies, and to make the necessary arrangements for the comfortable use of removable prostheses.
CAN TRADITIONAL FIXED DENTURES BE REMOVED?
After the treatment is completed and the teeth are permanently bonded, they cannot be removed by our patients. If necessary, we can separate the dentures from the teeth by using special tools for removal.
HOW SHOULD TRADITIONAL FIXED DENTURES BE CARED FOR?
As with our normal teeth, we should brush the areas where our dentures are located after each meal in the same way. The interfaces of individually prepared dentures should be cleaned with dental floss. Special dental flosses and mouthwashes should be used to clean the area under our crowns in the toothless area in prostheses prepared in cases where there is a lack of teeth. For daily denture cleaning, you should put your denture and 1 denture cleaning tablet in a glass of warm water.
