Orthopedics in dentistry is a specialized area dedicated to restoring and improving the function of teeth, jaws, and their interaction. Orthopedics-tomatologists conduct careful examinations of patients and develop optimal prosthetic plans focused on restoring the functionality of teeth and jaws.

When is a prosthetic required?

Protection is recommended in the following cases:

* Dental loss.

* Dental damage.

* Deformations of teeth and jaws.

* Aesthetic problems.

Prosthetic methods:
  1. Classic prosthetics: There are removable prosthetics that can be removed for cleaning and sleep.
  2. Fixed prosthetics: Prosthetics are mounted on the remaining teeth or implants and do not require removal.
  3. Dental implantation: The lost tooth is replaced by the implant on which the crown is placed, ensuring a reliable fixation.
Various types of orthopedic prostheses:
  1. Orthopaedic prostheses: Includes both removable and non-removable dental prostheses.
  2. Implant prosthetics: Implants are used for reliable and long-term prosthetics.
  3. Partial prosthetics: Prosthetics replace only missing teeth while preserving the rest.
  4. Computer Prosthetics: Modern technologies are used to make precise and comfortable dental prostheses.

Role of dentist in dentistry:

Orthopedic dentistry not only restores the functionality of the teeth but also improves the aesthetics of the smile, increasing the patient’s self-confidence.
