Dental prosthesis - orthopedic devices, reducing the defects of the tooth and teeth. Dentures are divided into inlays, crowns, dental teeth, bridges, laminar and clasp.
Pin tooth is a plastic tooth on the pin that reinforce cement in the root of the tooth. Crowns and dental teeth can be a support for the bridges.
The bridge is made of metal, plastic or a combination of metal with plastic and applied with partial absence of teeth, when you have the abutment teeth. By construction, this prosthesis is reminiscent of the bridge, where the anchors are preserved the patient's teeth on both sides of the defect, and a span - artificial teeth.
A fixed bridge strengthen on the abutment teeth cement.
Bridges can be removable. This prosthesis strengthen on the abutment teeth clasps (special hooks); the patient sets the prosthesis in your mouth and remove for cleaning from the remnants of food.
Laminar dentures are used in the case when there are no conditions for the imposition of bridges (total absence or poor location of the remaining teeth). On a toothless jaws laminar dentures are held mainly by suction. Laminar dentures are made of plastic, they cover the mucous membrane of the jaws and the sky, so to get used to such dentures need some time: first, they cause increased salivation, violate pronunciation and taste sensations. Laminar dentures at night should be removed, cleaned of residual, food and store in a dry kind.
Bugel prosthesis designs combine elements of bridges and laminar dentures. They are used instead of bridges in cases where preparation of supporting teeth under crown contraindicated, and instead of laminar, if unwanted extra burden on the mucous membrane associated with the wearing of laminar denture. The main part of the clasp prosthesis is supporting Klammer, who, fixing dentures tooth, reduces chewing pressure on the mucous membrane; therefore clasp prosthesis sizes of the plate are significantly less than in the laminar denture.
