PROSTHETICS

Through honest and open communication, we implement a transparent and safe way of working with our patients who are familiarised with all issues and procedural steps.

PROSTHETICS

This is the part of prosthetics that includes surgical insertion of implants to which prosthetic replacements in the form of a bridge or denture are attached. This group includes the popular ‘ALL on 4’ and ‘ALL on 6’.

If these are placed in conjunction with dentures, they are attached to implants with special connections custom made for each individual patient. Examples of this technique are special clips or bars that act as a superstructure on implants and dentures can be firmly ‘clipped’ on the bar.

ZIRCONIA CERAMICS

(bridges and individual crowns)

This is the most commonly used material when it comes to making larger, strong and highly aesthetic structures.

There are also variations in technical performance which refer to ceramic layers and mostly affect the final aesthetics. When consulting with a patient, we always explain all the possible variations and ascertain a patient’s wishes in order to achieve the best results and satisfy our patients.

INDIVIDUAL CROWNS

Individual crowns are aesthetically beautiful restorations which, through changes in colour and shape, create a beautiful individual smile. The material which will be used is selected taking into consideration the foundation, i.e. the tooth they will be put on.

Today there are a variety of a ceramics available that offer differing aesthetic properties and strengths, which we must always consider when aiming to achieve a satisfactory result.

METAL CERAMICS

(bridges)

Metal ceramic replacements consist of a metal base and a ceramic aesthetic material that covers it completely.

Individual crowns, small bridges and large circular bridges can be made to fill the entire jaw. Of course, the metal structure itself can be made of a variety of metals, the best of which are gold and titanium.

COMBINATION PROCEDURES

A highly effective solution where a patient has teeth but too few for fixed procedures.

This involves a combination of a bridge and a denture. The bridge is cemented into the mouth and a part of its structure are special clips used to fasten the second part of the combination, a partial metal denture.

There are also bridges made from more aesthetically pleasing materials, such as a combination of zirconia bridges and BioHPP® dentures.

DENTURES

Removable dentures replace teeth and can be removed from the mouth.

These are the most affordable option available today. A patient can live with them and thus regain lost function, despite their limitations.

IMPLANT PROSTHETICS

In instances where patients want a better solution than a denture, implants allow for excellent opportunities for fixed prosthetic work.

Depending on the condition of the bone, surgical parameters and affordability fot the patient, a certain number of implants can be installed and a prosthetic superstructure can be attached in the form of a bridge or denture.

VENEERS

Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are attached only to the front of the teeth. They can be used to correct the color and shape and create a “perfect” smile.

The thickness itself is about 0.3 mm, sometimes less. They are cemented to the tooth enamel, so tooth preparation is really minimal.

However, the indications for veneers are narrow and strict. They are performed exclusively on healthy teeth, without fillings and loss of enamel. If veneers are being considered, a patient with bruxism or teeth grinding is not an ideal candidate.

Inlay, Onlay, Overlay, tabletop

Ceramic prosthetic restorations are used in case of large loss of tooth tissue. A good example is a tooth damaged by large caries or a vital (endodontically treated) tooth where a composite filling is not sufficient.

They are harder and more durable than composite fillings and have excellent aesthetic properties. Respecting the indications, they are one of the longest-lasting types of fillers.
