Prothetics / Dentures

Beautiful and healthy teeth create a confident and beaming image. If one loses teeth through misalignment, an accident or improper hygiene, some degree of your quality of life inevitably follows. Moreover, teeth gaps, pain and permanent bone loss can be caused.
Dental prostheses offer the possibility for you to restore your natural appearance and the full functionality of your teeth. A distinction is made here between fixed and removable dentures. Fixed dentures include crowns, bridges, veneers and implants. Full or partial dentures belong to removable dentures.

 

Fixed Dentures

Scanning - Most modern techniques in dentures

Our 3Shape Trios scanner enhances comfort for our patients through fast, easy, and accurate impressions in true-to-life colors. No more annoying dental impressions, which remain unpleasantly in the mouth for minutes. With our scanner we take photos of the entire arch and all the ground teeth. As dentist, we can scan quickly and easily with optimal patient comfort and a shorter treatment time, as well as absolutely precise, high-quality results. Scanning also shows the colors and individual characteristics, which cannot be recorded in a conventional dental impression.

 

 

Inlays and Partial Crowns

Inlays are used for middle to large tooth decay damage in the chewing surface of the back teeth. In contrast to complete crowns, partial crowns cover only part of the natural tooth . They are used in fewer severely damaged teeth.
When using a partial crown, a large part of the natural tooth substance can be maintained. Furthermore you can hardly or even not distinguish them from the natural tooth, because they are tooth shaded. In our office partial crowns can also be manufactured by means of a CAD/CAM unit, so called CEREC. This modern method for the production of tooth-colored inlays and partial crowns made of solid ceramics allows us a one session one time procedure without the classic impression technique.

Inlays : Einfügen des fertiggestellten Inlays mithilfe von einer Spezialklebetechnik

Inlays : Eingesetztes Inlay
Inserted Inlay.

Crowns

The application of artificial crowns replaces the natural layer of the tooth’s crown. It can be considered as a cap, coating and protecting the visible part of a tooth. By this treatment a severely damaged tooth is restored to its size and strength. The anatomical shape is aligned as much as possible to the natural dental crown.

Kronen : Vollgusskrone in Gold, Titan oder Stahl
Metal crown in gold, titanium or steel.
Kronen : Verblendkrone mit Keramik oder Kunststoff verblendetem Metall
Veneered crown with ceramic or plastic veneered metal.
Kronen : Metallfreie Krone - komplett bestehend aus Hochleistungskeramik
Metal-free crown - complete consisting of high-performance ceramics.
Kronen : Teilkrone komplett bestehend aus Metall oder Keramik
Partial crown completely consisting of metal.
Kronen : Teilkrone komplett bestehend aus Metall oder Keramik
Partial crown completely consisting of ceramic.

Bridges

Bridges are used to close the gaps between teeth. For that reason, at least two abutment teeth are ground and crowned. A bridge is a tight-fitting tooth replacement. The neighboring teeth of the missing tooth are ground and an impression is taken. Finally, in the dental lab, a bridge is produced and then firmly cemented onto the stump of the abutment tooth. A special form of the dental bridge is the adhesive bridge for the highly aesthetic front tooth area. Another name for an adhesive bridge is also Maryland-bridge; one understands a fixed bridge to replace missing teeth in the front tooth area. These briges are mounted on the enamela surface of a minimal ground tooth. It consists of a metal or a ceramic structure.
As an alternative to a bridge, an implant can be positioned and then the healthy tooth does not need to be ground.

Brücken : Kiefer mit der zu versorgenden Zahnlücke
Jaw with teh gap to be supplied
Brücken : Benachbarte, beschliffene Zähne
Adjacent, ground teeth
Brücken : Befestigung der Brücke mithilfe eines speziellen Zahnklebstoffes
Fixing the bridge using a special dental adhesive
Brücken : Ästhetisch anspruchsvolles Endergebnis

Veneers

Veneers (synonym for capping) are sheer, translucent shells made of plastic or ceramic. With these, false positions of the tooth are compensated for as well as form and change of color. Through the application of veneers, highly aesthetic results are attained.

Removable Dentures

For the removable dentures, one distinguishes between full and partial dentures.
If a few of your teeth are present in adequate sizes, then removable dentures will be implemented, that were positioned on the healthy teeth. If there are no more teeth available then the situation is fixed with a full denture.

Full Denture

With a toothless jaw, the patient is most often supplied with a complete prosthesis. The challenge here is that not any natural teeth can be used for mounting. The prosthesis is solely attached through the suction power of the mucous membrane in the mouth. An exact fit of the prostheses base is essential for a good grip.

If the desire is for absolutely stable and complete prostheses not on the palate, this is only implemented via Implantate .

Vollprothesen : Zahnloser Kieferknochen

Clasp Denture

As the name already suggests, this type of tooth replacement is attached to one’s teeth with clips.
Thereby, the so-called armature teeth are ground with small troughs, in order to offer space for clip support.

Combined Denture (Telescope Technokogy)

If there are still sufficient teeth present for a crown anchorage, the telescopic prosthesis is a comfortable solution in order to replace several lost teeth. For the so-called combined tooth replacement, it consists of firmly anchored crowns in the mouth (primary telescope) and of a removable second part with the actual prosthetic teeth. Through this method, the telescopic prosthesis offers very good support when eating and talking and thus a very large degree of comfort for the patient.
Furthermore, no anchoring aids (such as clips) are visible, so that this form of dentistry is very aesthetically appealing.

Attachment Technique

The attachment prosthesis is suited for connecting tooth gaps with stable abutment teeth.
It is a particularly secure and stable holding device without visible connection elements and is therefore also very aesthetically attractive.
The attachment prosthesis is thus a partial prosthesis, that is attached through special precision parts onto the “remaining teeth.” On the backside of the last crown there is an insertion element, which fits exactly parallel to be inserted, which is incorporated into the prosthesis.
