In the dental office "Dr. Djordjevic" we do all types of fixed and removable dentures.

  • Metal fused to porcelain crowns and bridges
  • Gold-alloy metal fused to porcelain crowns and bridges
  • All porcelain crown
  • Telescope crowns
  • Vizil partial dentures combined with porcelain with the help od attachments
  • Total prosthesis (with or without a metal base)
  • Complete dentures on mini-implants (lower denture "will not stand" problem is solved)
  • Implants upgrade

 

Crowns

The crown is a type of prosthetic device that completely covers or surrounds a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the current dental health. Crowns are usually connected to the tooth by using cement. The crowns can be made of various types of materials produced by indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
Since undeniably beneficial to dental health, the procedures and materials used can be quite expensive. The most common method of making a crown includes an imprint of the tooth taken by dental prosthetist in order to make a crown. The crown is inserted later. This indirect method of prosthetics allows use of strong restorative materials whose preparation takes a lot of time and high heat (such as the casting of metal or incandescent porcelain), which can not be performed within the oral cavity.
Taking into account the expanding characteristics, the relatively similar costs of material and aesthetics, many patients prefer crowns made of gold. Due to the development of new technologies and materials, computers are increasingly involved in making crowns and bridges (eg CAD / CAM dentistry).

Dental bridge

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated. In other words, the abutment teeth are reduced in size to accommodate the material to be used to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in a correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth. The dimensions of the bridge are defined by Ante's Law: "The root surface area of the abutment teeth has to equal or surpass that of the teeth being replaced".

Prostheses - artificial teeth

Dentures, also known as artificial teeth, are prosthetic restorations constructed to replace missing teeth and supporting surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch.
