A dental prosthetics is used to replace missing teeth. At the Medical Dentistry clinic, we keep up with the latest achievements in the field of dental materials and thus avoid using any metals in prostheses such as individual “porcelain” crowns or larger bridges. When treating individual teeth, we use a type of ceramic that is translucent to light and enables excellent integration of the prosthetic cap into the existing dental arch. When it comes to larger prostheses (bridges), we utilise zirconium oxide framework ceramic, a very hard material that ensures the durability of the prosthetics. Its advantages are supported by scientific findings as well as our own experience. This type of ceramic is not translucent to light, making it highly suitable for use with darker teeth that have been coloured by old metal frameworks or incorrect treatments in the past. On top of that, the manufacturer provides a 5-year guarantee on the frameworks, which is extremely rare in this industry.
The most common worry of our patients is how to survive the period of prosthetic rehabilitation because they still need to go to work and socialise. We realise that it is nearly impossible to go through this period in isolation, therefore we do not allow you to leave the clinic before you are not at least temporarily orderly. Therefore the procedure will not bother you in your everyday tasks.
