Prosthetics

Nowadays, prosthetics is much more than making the benefits for the patient. Modern prosthetic remedies also aim at superior aesthetics, which implies a completely natural appearance of teeth. This is made possible by the exceptional development of dental materials and the use of modern computer systems.


After a detailed dental examination and insight into the condition of your teeth, a decision is made as to what kind of prosthetic care would be the best in your case. In our dental office - Panakeia you get everything in one place, fast, efficient and quality.

Crowns (toothpicks)

They reconstruct the complete tooth both functionally and aesthetically, reinforce it, shape it and fit in with the dental row. They are applied in heavily damaged teeth, devitalized or teeth with high volumes or irregularities. Also, they are made in the teeth that will be bridge supports. The examination determines whether it is necessary to prepare teeth endodontic (nerve extraction) or periodontal. It is also assessed whether the endodontically treated tooth will need to be reinforced with a fiberglass anchor.


After preparation for crowns (preparation-grinding), temporary crowns are made. There is a printout, making a crown in a dental laboratory, tests and, when satisfied both the dentist and the patient, the cementing of the toothbrush is approached.


Metal-ceramic or non-metallic toothcrowns

Until recently, metal-ceramic crowns were more commonly chosen than non-metallic crowns.


Metal-ceramic crowns as the basis have a metal through which the ceramics are applied in the appropriate color. They fulfil all functional and aesthetic requirements.


However, in the case of front teeth, the best choice are ceramic (non-metallic) crowns, which satisfy even the highest aesthetic standards. Unlike metallic - ceramic, non - metallic crowns transmit light, which gives them a much more natural appearance. Then, there is no danger of the appearance of the dark edge on the right, which sometimes happens with metal - ceramic crowns. They are much better fitting into the dental row, which is very important when only a few crowns are made, because they are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. Today's choice of ceramics (primarily zirconium) allows for durability in the lateral region, not only in the front.




Dental bridges

Bridges are one of the solutions when one or more teeth are missing. The carriers are adjacent teeth, which must be prepared, (grind for crowns). This makes them an inferior solution in relation to a bridge with implants, especially if there are 3 or more teeth missing. The reason is the overload of the tooth carrier.

Bridges are made in the final phase of treatment of periodontitis, when they serve to fix moving, loose teeth. They can also be combined with prostheses. Similar to crowns, bridges can be metal - ceramic and non-metallic. Prices of crowns can be found in our price list.
