It is the field of dentistry that deals with the restoration of the patient's oral system in cases where one or more teeth have been lost in one or more areas of the mouth. Upon replacement of the missing teeth, prosthetic dentistry restores proper function of mastication, phonation, smooth development of the temporomandibular joints and muscles as well as the aesthetic appearance of the smile, the lips and the whole face.
Modern materials and technical protocols of prosthetics are able to maximize the aesthetics and functionality of the teeth and the oral system as a whole.
MONOLITHIC ZIRCONIA BRIDGES
The bridge is a fixed prosthetic restoration (ie it remains permanently in the oral cavity) that replaces one or more teeth that are missing from the patient's normal dentition. It rests on some existing teeth that serve as pillars to support the artificial teeth. A bridge can also be supported on implants, in case the patient has an extensive tooth loss. It can also be supported by both a natural tooth and an implant. This is called mixed support.
The all-ceramic monolithic zirconia bridges, new technology in prosthetic restoration, are made entirely of a special type of ceramic material with a zirconia frame, without the addition of metal. Porcelain can mimic the adamantine of a natural tooth with incredible naturalness. They are preferred for the front teeth.
CAD / CAM MONOLITHIC ZIRCONIA BRIDGES
The most advanced dental technology in prosthetics is the dental bridges made of CAD-CAM monolithic zircon. They have excellent durability and the material from which they are made allows light to penetrate it, giving them the aesthetic characteristics of a natural tooth. They are more durable than all-ceramic bridges and are therefore chosen mainly for the rear areas due to the great forces exerted during chewing.
