Dental prosthesis – What is dental prosthesis? What are the possibilities for dentures? Why do we lose the dentures? This questions are now answered by our senior dentist, Dr. Kovács Roland.

Dental prosthesis – with this expression meets anyone who has already lost a teeth. In my experience, however, patients are often not sufficiently informed, although dental prosthesis is an important and frequent subject in dentistry.

I will tell you step by step what a fixed prosthesis means, what it is.

In general, a fixed prosthesis may be:

  1. Removable dentures
  2. Glued dentures

Here one must also mention the partly fixed dentures, otherwise called the bridge prosthesis. A fixed prosthesis can therefore mean:

Fixed dentures – what is its function?

A fixed denture has a function in the case of missing teeth. In general, it fills the place of the missing teeth. However, there are also other functions of a fixed prosthesis:

How to get a fixed prosthesis? What are the steps?

  1. Initial examination and treatment plan: visit our ordination in Sopron (Onix Dental, Sopron), where we first examine the condition of your teeth, then we prepare a treatment plan and a cost estimate.
  2. The treatment begins: the patient receives local anesthesia and we start with the teeth razing.
  3. Take an imprint: we take an imprint of your tooth stumps.
  4. Provisional crown: in our ordination you get provisional crowns. With these crowns you can drive home.
  5. You come back to a consult: you check their fixed dentures in shape and color, according to their wish we can change the aesthetics. After the test, you leave our ordination with your provisional crowns.
  6. Granting of your fixed prosthesis: we glue or screw your fixed dental prosthesis.
  7. You come to the control: the bite is regulated and we show you how you can clean your fixed dentures.


Fixed prosthesis – Shall I clean it?

In addition to their fixed dentures, their gums can be inflamed. We therefore recommend the use of suitable solutions and flushing agents. As far as the use is concerned, we advise our patients personally, in our office.

Dentures – Where is cleaning most important?

Under the bridges cleaning is the most important, we provide you with special brushes and dental flosses in our ordination. It is also very important that you come to us for regular dental hygiene examination. In our office we recommend you this every 6th month.


Fixed dentures – do I feel the difference between the fixed dentures and my own teeth?

Fixed dentures – What material are they made from?

As a rule, a frame is produced that is covered with tooth-colored ceramics. The frame can be metallic or metal-free. Metal-free frames have, for example, the zirconium crowns.

Dental prosthesis – How is it made?

Dental prosthesis – How is it made of metal-ceramic?

The special metal frame is burned with ceramic cover. This can be a crown or a bridge. Only metal crowns are now no longer produced, only in exceptional cases, for example, from gold.

Dentures – How accurate is he?

Nowadays, a fixed prosthesis, which is made by tooth vessel or on implants, should be very precise. You need:

  1. Accurate toothed vessel
  2. Particularly good technique for taking imprints
  3. Precise work of dental technology

At Onix Dental in Sopron, we pay particular attention to the quality of the fixed dentures because a fixed denture is a nice and well-functioning solution in the long term.

How long termed is a fixed prosthesis?

If a fixed prosthesis has been manufactured well, the only problem can be the fatigue of the materials. In most cases this means:

The life expectancy of a fixed prosthesis is about 15-20 years. Usually an exchange is needed because of the change in the existing teeth.


Dental prosthesis – How can my existing teeth change?

If you visit our ordination regularly for oral hygiene, you will most likely not have any problems. You will only get problems if your fixed dentures and your teeth are not checked regularly.
