Dental prosthetics

Maintaining a radiant smile reflects not just personal health but also signifies one’s status and professional success.

In such instances, dental prosthetics play a pivotal role.

Opting for dental prosthetics doesn’t just ensure the preservation of a flawless smile and bolster self-confidence; it also serves as a marker of one’s standing.

In this piece, we delve into everything related to dental prosthetics: from the various available types and the materials they are made from to the investment required for dental prosthetics. Whether you’re considering fixed teeth prosthetics, implant prosthetics, or exploring the cost of prosthetics for a single tooth, this article provides comprehensive insights into achieving and maintaining a perfect smile through advanced dental prosthetic solutions.

What are dentures

Dental prosthetics involves the reconstruction of missing or damaged teeth through the use of orthopedic devices, catering to both complete and partial tooth loss scenarios.

The goal of dental prosthetics, ranging from single tooth prosthetics to total dental solutions, is to seamlessly replace missing teeth, rejuvenate the affected areas of the dental arch, and fully reinstate the masticatory function. Essentially, it's about rectifying any and all dental imperfections.

Prosthetic dentistry often becomes the recourse when traditional dental remedies fall short, marking a progression towards addressing age-related dental deteriorations with a holistic approach that encompasses both the structural restoration and therapeutic care to halt further dental degradation.

The investment in dental prosthetics, be it for implant prosthetics, crown prosthetics, or comprehensive prosthetics solutions, varies based on the complexity of the design, choice of materials, and additional specifications. Given the fluctuating nature of prosthetics pricing, prospective patients are encouraged to consult directly with dental professionals for the most accurate and up-to-date cost information, ensuring a tailored approach to dental restoration.

Dentures: kinds and prices

There are two main types of prosthetic restorations in dentistry: permanent (fixed) and removable (removable) restorations. They differ from each other in how they are attached and held in the mouth. The former are fixed. That is, they are "glued" to the remaining teeth or implants, or "screwed" onto them. Movable dentures are those that the patient can take out of the mouth independently at any time.


Removable dentures include:

  • Silicone dentures;
  • Nylon dentures;
  • Acrylic;
  • Clasp dentures;
  • Plate dentures.

Important: there are no removable dentures on implants.

Non-removable structures are:

  • Crowns (made mostly of metal-ceramic, zirconia, or E-max ceramic);
  • Bridges (made of metal or metal-ceramic);
  • Veneers (made of porcelain or glass-ceramic)

Depending on clinical conditions (number and quality of teeth, previous root canal treatment), the patient's financial means and the desired aesthetic effect, different materials are used. For example, porcelain (which is often used for crowns) is considered the most aesthetically appealing material, but it is more expensive and can rub against other teeth during normal functioning. Also, porcelain dentures cannot be filled. For example, if the porcelain inlay breaks down. Meanwhile, removable nylon dentures are just as attractive. They are also softer and more flexible than, for example, acrylic

In general, before prosthetics it is necessary to consult with your doctor: get to know all the nuances, features and properties of prosthetic constructions.

Remember that properly fitted next generation dentures do not cause discomfort and do not feel while chewing.


Dentures: price

To the question: "How much is a dental prosthesis?" it is impossible to give an unambiguous answer. It all depends on the fabrication material, the initial preparation of the mouth for dentures, the nuances in the fabrication and the installation method.

For example, a removable denture on implants will cost less than a fixed prosthesis. With implant prostheses, the healing process takes 3 to 6 months.

For example, а butte rfl)' denture will cost on average between 800 AED and 1400 AED. The price of Butterfly replacement for one tooth is better to be clarified by the doctor treating you in the clinic.

When to consult a doctor

It is important to note that a full restoration of the tooth row will not only improve the patient's appearance and make his smile more beautiful, but will also allow him to chew properly, which, in turn, will have a significant impact on his digestion. Prosthetic dentures also slow down negative changes in the oral cavity. For example, atrophy.

Examination and diagnosis is the foundation of any dental treatment. At this stage, the dentist should identify potential problems and tell the patient about them in order to determine what he or she wants and what he or she can do, and then select the appropriate treatment.

A dentist should be consulted in cases of partial tooth loss. Even if only one tooth is missing or has partially decayed. The dentist will then select a treatment plan, agree on all next steps with the patient and begin restoring the teeth.
