Why a fixed prosthesis?
This type of device is used to replace a lost or badly damaged tooth in order to restore the appearance and functionality of the teeth. The prosthesis acts like a natural tooth by reproducing its function, while offering an attractive aesthetic result. You will be able to chew comfortably and express your joy with a wide smile on your face!
Dentists recommend this approach for the treatment of edentulism
This is the loss of one or more teeth due to decay or periodontitis, an inflammation of the gums that progressively causes the tooth to loosen. This situation creates a considerable functional and aesthetic imbalance. Fortunately, a fixed prosthesis will allow us to alleviate this problem by replacing the missing or damaged tooth with an adapted prosthetic material.
If you have never had tooth decay, you are quite lucky! It is a very common pathology, causing a progressive alteration of the integrity of the dental enamel until it touches the nerve, causing severe pain. It is most often favored by food stasis. However, prosthetic treatment remains a last resort, as dentists always opt for a conservative solution, i.e. to preserve the natural tooth as much as possible, before considering any radical treatment.
