Moving Prostheses

Moving Prostheses

It is the general term used to describe the crown and bridge prosthesis. It is the most preferred type of prosthesis in terms of function in dental deficiencies. However, depending on the area where there is a shortage of teeth, it is sometimes not possible to do so. Patients are often concerned about reducing certain teeth in the mouth to support while maintaining a fixed prosthesis. However:

  • Chewing with a fixed prosthesis will be easier and more convenient. For dental deficiencies, using the teeth on the other side, if any, will cause problems with the teeth and gums on the side you use regularly.
  • Teeth around the area without a tooth will move towards this space. Due to the displacement of these teeth, the closing of your upper and lower jaw will change, causing complaints that start with pain in your jaw joint, facial muscles that allow chewing and talking, and that extend to more serious problems. In some cases, pain extends to the face, head, neck and back areas.

What is crown and why is it used?

It is the coating applied to the tooth to restore a damaged tooth. Its purpose is to enhance, strengthen and protect the teeth. Crown can be done in the following situations:

  • to restore a large filling in the absence of sufficient dental support,
  • to prevent weak teeth from breaking,
  • as a superstructure for a tooth implant,
  • to coat broken, distorted or colored threads.

What is the most suitable material for crown coatings?


When selecting the material that is most suitable for you, both image and function are considered. Your dentist will evaluate the dental placement, the location of the gingival tissue, the amount of teeth you see when you smile, the coloration of your teeth and the functions of your teeth. Crowns can be made from various materials. These include gold or less valuable alloys, porcelain (ceramic), acrylic, composite or a combination of all.


Crown is done in a few steps. Your dentist prepares your tooth as necessary, cleans if there are any decay sections and measures are taken to obtain a complete version of the tooth. According to the model obtained, your crown will be finalized. Once the crown is fully ready, your dentist will place it after making the necessary adjustments. After you and your dentist are satisfied with the appearance and position, the crown is permanently glued.

You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss your teeth once a day. This cleaning will eliminate the plaques of bacteria. The most important point in this area is to clean sulcus plaques in the area where your teeth and gums meet. To prevent crowns from breaking or damaged, it is necessary to avoid chewing hard food and objects. Visiting your dentist on a routine basis, as in any case, will prolong the life of the crown.

One of the primary goals of your dentist is to simulate artificial teeth as much as possible with natural teeth. In order to achieve this, color, shape, bite, and both of your natural and artificial teeth are taken into account. Any of these factors can affect your appearance considerably. As a result of this procedure, you should talk to your dentist about what you expect to look like in the first session.

The appearance and function are taken into consideration when selecting the bridge material. Bridges can be consisted of gold alloys, alloys that are not valuable, porcelain or combination of all of these.

Yes! Implants attach the artificial teeth directly to the chin or below the gum.  Since implant treatment requires surgical intervention, general health should be good and the sufficient bone structure should be available for inserting the implant.
In some cases, bridges made with the adhesive system (bonding) are also used to compensate for lost teeth. Since these bridges are attached to other teeth in a specific process, there is no need for a crown. Your dentist will determine which treatment method is suitable for you.

A fixed bridge is attached to the gap caused by the absence of lost teeth by drawing support from the neighboring natural teeth. Thus, an artificial tooth replaces the lost tooth. Artificial tooth is attached to drums prepared on natural teeth.
