We can replace lost teeth with two types of prosthesis:
Fixed prosthesis: The patient can not withdraw from the mouth. The support pillars are needed; Can be dental pieces or implants.
It is made with noble or semi-precious metals and dental porcelain.
Removable prosthesis: It is the one that the same patient can remove from the mouth.
Depending on the case it can be manufactured in two ways:
- A metal structure on which the teeth are supported and to which welded retainers or hooks to fasten the structure to the remaining parts of the mouth.
- Resin structure that fits perfectly to the contour of the gingiva and attaches to it when there is a vacuum between the surface of the prosthesis and the surface of the mucosa of the mouth.
