Dental Prosthesis Treatment

A dental prosthesis, also known as dentures, is a dental treatment used to replace missing teeth and fill gaps in the mouth. It improves aesthetics, resolves speech difficulties, and restores the ability to eat and drink. Dental prostheses are customized to fit the individual's oral structure. For more information and suitable treatment options regarding dental prostheses, you can consult Clinic EGO.

The different types of dental prostheses include complete dentures, partial dentures, and removable dentures.

They can be used when one or more teeth are missing, for aesthetic purposes, or to preserve the jaw structure.

After an initial examination, oral measurements are taken, and necessary X-rays are obtained. Impressions are made and sent to the dental laboratory where the prosthesis is fabricated. Color and shape selections are done to ensure a natural look. After the prosthesis returns from the laboratory, trial fittings and adjustments are made in the patient’s mouth. The treatment is completed after maintenance and follow-up visits.

Dental prostheses can alleviate aesthetic concerns and boost self-confidence. As they are customized for each individual, they provide comfort and a proper fit.

Patients might experience minor difficulties during the adaptation process. It’s important to communicate any areas of discomfort or dissatisfaction to your dentist for adjustments.

Dental prostheses are typically long-lasting and can be used by patients for an average of 5 to 7 years, depending on individual factors.

They should be cleaned daily by brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. If you have night guards or other protective devices, follow your dentist’s instructions for their care.

Typically, dental prostheses do not cause pain. However, minor discomfort can occur during the initial adaptation period. Persistent pain should be reported to the dentist.

Dental prostheses should be removed for cleaning, and in cases of wear, slippage, gum problems, damage, or breakage.

After removing dental prostheses, patients may experience speech and eating difficulties. Additionally, removing a dental prosthesis may cause pressure on the jawbone. Unless necessary for cleaning or adjustments, frequent removal is not recommended.
