Prosthodontics is a field of dental medicine specializing in oral rehabilitation, promoting alternative solutions to natural teeth after their loss.
Whatever the situation, all lost teeth should be replaced as early as possible, as solutions tend to be more complex and costly over time.
At Nova Denstismed dental clinics in Lisbon, we have specialized dentists in Prosthodontics who will be able to tell you the solution for your specific case, as well as explain the advantages and drawbacks of each solution.
PROSTHODONTICS COMMON CASES
The most common problems are those related to the partial or total loss of teeth that bring a whole set of other associated problems, from aesthetic to functional and even physical and psychological health. What is often unknown is that the loss of teeth, one or more, gives rise to an immediate reaction of adaptation of the body to the new situation, which may in some cases result in bone loss and dislocation of the other adjacent and antagonistic teeth. In these cases, these changes, which tend to worsen over time, may make it difficult to find a good alternative to natural teeth. Thus, it is advisable to consult the dentist as soon as a tooth or teeth loss occurs.
