Every year millions of teeth are lost on the planet, by caries, periodontitis or accidents. The consequences of tooth loss for the patient are many.
Apart from the aesthetic consequences, the chewing capacity is reduced, the remaining teeth are shifted, the physiological occlusion is disturbed and the lips and cheeks are not adequately supported.
It is therefore necessary to restore these teeth by artificial means.
The prosthetic restorations are of two kinds. The fixed(crowns and bridges) that are bonded on the teeth or screwed (in implants) and the patient can not remove them and the removable (full or partial) dentures which the patient removes whenever needed.
