Prosthetic Dental Treatment (Prosthesis) and Implant Treatment


Prosthetic dental treatment is a dental treatment method that involves the design, production, and application of artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth and correct the oral structure. Prostheses are specially designed according to the patient’s oral structure and needs. Prosthetic dental treatment is generally divided into two types: Fixed prostheses (bridges) and removable prostheses (full and partial dentures). Implant treatment, on the other hand, is a treatment method where titanium implants are placed to replace missing teeth in cases of tooth loss. Implants are placed in the jawbone and gradually fuse with the bone, serving as a tooth root. The prostheses placed on them replace missing teeth and provide a similar appearance and function to natural teeth. Implant treatment is a suitable option for many people who have a strong jawbone structure and are in good general health.

1. Which treatments are applied in the field of prosthetic dental treatment?

Prosthetic dental treatment encompasses several procedures aimed at restoring or replacing missing teeth and improving oral health. These treatments can include:

  • Removable Dentures: These are prosthetic teeth that can be removed from the mouth and are used to replace missing teeth. They come in two types: complete dentures (used when all teeth are missing) and partial dentures (used when only a few teeth are missing).
  • Fixed Prostheses: These are prosthetic teeth that are permanently attached to the mouth. Bridges are the most common type of fixed prostheses. Prostheses that are attached to dental implants also fall into this category.
  • Crowns and Bridges: These are used to restore or replace damaged or missing teeth. Crowns cover a single tooth, while bridges are used to fill in a gap left by a missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Prostheses: These are prosthetic teeth that are supported by dental implants. They provide a more secure fit and a natural appearance.
  • Complete Dentures: These are used when all teeth are missing and are designed to fit over the gums.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: These are used to repair cavities or damage to teeth. They are made to match the color of natural teeth.
  • Porcelain Veneers: These are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to change the color, shape, or size of teeth.

These treatments can be tailored to fit the individual needs of each patient. It is important to consult with your dentist to determine the best treatment option for you.


2. Which treatments are applied In the field of implant treatment?

Implant treatment involves the placement of titanium implants to replace missing teeth, followed by the placement of prosthetic teeth on these implants. The following steps are generally followed in implant treatment:

  • Examination and Planning: The dentist examines the patient's oral structure to determine the placement of the implant and creates a treatment plan. The suitability of the jaw structure is assessed at this stage.
  • Implant Placement: This is the process of placing the implant into the jawbone under local anesthesia. The implant is a titanium structure similar to a screw, which is placed into the jawbone and is expected to fuse with the bone.
  • Healing Process (Osseointegration): This is the process of the implant fusing with the jawbone and becoming integrated with the bone. This process generally takes several months.
  • Prosthetic Stage: This involves the placement of the prosthetic tooth onto the implant. The prosthetic tooth is specially designed to be compatible with the patient's other teeth. Implant treatment is generally considered a permanent solution for tooth loss. However, for implant treatment to be successful, the patient must have good general health and sufficient jawbone. Therefore, a detailed examination and planning are necessary to determine the appropriate treatment option for each patient.
