If a tooth is missing or too damaged, it must be replaced or restored to give patients their smile back, but also to restore oral function and prevent tooth displacement. This is where prosthodontics is used to restore natural teeth or replace missing teeth with prostheses, bridges or crowns.
Full and partial dentures
Partial dentures can replace one or more teeth and are attached to adjacent healthy teeth using small hooks. Full dentures tend to be used to replace all natural teeth. Both types of prostheses are removable.
Crowns and bridges
Crowns are an aesthetically pleasing and proven restoration solution and are used to cover and protect damaged teeth, while bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Both treatments are permanently fixed in the mouth. They can be made of metals, porcelain or metal-ceramic alloys.

Fixed or removable prosthesis on dental implants
Two types of prostheses are placed on implants: fixed and removable. Fixed prostheses, such as crowns, are permanently placed on implants, while removable dentures must be removed when cleaning or sleeping.
The choice of one or the other is determined by several factors, which we will be pleased to discuss with you.
