What is Prosthetic Teeth?


Prosthesis refers to the artificial replacement of the organ or tissue that cannot fulfill any deficiency or function in the human body. In dentistry, the prosthesis, which is frequently used as denture prosthesis in the dentistry, refers to artificial materials prepared for the purpose of function, phonation and aesthetic recovery of the patient’s teeth and tissues lost in the mouth.

The branch of dentistry dealing with prosthesis is called prosthetic dentistry, in other words Prosthodontics, and the dentist who specializes in this field is called a prosthodontist. Prosthetic dentistry has a wide range of clinical practice in dentistry. It is a branch of dentistry which includes the aesthetics as well as health, provides the recovery of lost function, aesthetics and comfort by using appropriate materials to correct the shape of natural teeth or to replace the missing teeth. 

Many treatments in dentistry terminate by requiring a prosthetic dental treatment. Covering the tooth with a porcelain crown after the root canal treatment, restoration with porcelain crown or porcelain bridge of the implant, which is made after tooth extraction, or treatment of missing teeth with partial or total prosthesis after tooth extraction are only a few of these requirements. In addition, occlusal rehabilitation and directing of treatment in temporomandibular joint disorders are also included in the field of prosthetic dental treatment.

In What Conditions is The Prosthesis Treatment Applied? 

When the loss of substance caused by excessive decay or other causes cannot be treated with fillings, denture making becomes compulsory. As well as developmental and genetic deficiencies or tooth extractions caused by various reasons lead to cavities in the mouth. The prosthesis fills the cavities formed due to lost tooth and teeth in the mouth. The missing teeth cause the stomach and digestive system diseases due to eating difficulties, nutritional deficiency, chewing problems. Over time, the person becomes unable to taste what they eat. Missing teeth can change the position of the teeth, or it might be lead to decay and gum disease. Thus, the impairment of oral health is observed. Pain in the jaw joint can cause joint problems such as voice and motion disorder. 

Lost lip, collapsing cheek, closing errors in mouth, speech function, chewing function and aesthetic image are recovered with dentals. With the help of Prosthetic Treatment, it has provided the psychological support to the person who has to live with missing or deformed teeth and who has forgotten to laugh, and it is aimed to improve their quality of life.

Because the number of dental surgeons and dental specialists is low in European Union countries such as Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and because every physician cannot perform these special treatments, dentists have to call a part-time physician to perform these treatment or they cannot do these treatments. As such, treatment prices in these countries are quite high.
