Fixed prostheses are the most commonly used treatment method in prosthodontics. Fixed dentures help to restore the effectiveness of chewing and create an aesthetic appearance. Various constructions of dentures are used when treatment of several teeth or implant-supported prosthetics are needed.
STAGES OF FIXED PROSTHETICS:
- Consultation - after the Patient's examination, the doctor listens to his wishes and expectations, a plan for prosthetic works is drawn up;
- Prosthetic works - according to the drawn up plan, preparatory works are performed during each visit: diagnostic models are ordered, dental preparation is performed, temporary dental crowns are produced. After assessing the condition of the teeth, modeling of the pins is performed. In the case of medical indications, to continue the plan of prosthetic works, the help of other doctors (dentist therapist or doctor endodontist) is sometimes needed.
- Final works - after the preparatory work is done, the dental impressions for the production of the tooth (teeth) are taken. Production deadlines are agreed upon with the laboratories. Each Patient's case is individual, so the deadline is adjusted accordingly. Upon receiving the product, inspections and measurements are performed, followed by final dental cementation.
- Care - according to the complexity of the construction, the doctor indicates the peculiarities of care. In the case of a standard prosthesis, it is necessary to perform professional oral hygiene once or twice a year.
