Prosthetics treatment is a form of dental restoration treatment that deals with a number of artificial methods to treat intraoral defects like missing tooth/ teeth, missing parts of teeth and/ or missing soft tissues or hard structures of the jaw and palate. Just as prosthetic limbs are used to replace missing limbs below the knee, prosthetic teeth are used to replace missing teeth or soft tissues in the jaw or within the mouth. Types of dental prosthetic solutions that are commonly used and recommended by dentists are fixed prostheses and removable prostheses. While the fixed solutions include dental crowns and tooth bridges that are permanently cemented to the mouth, removable prosthesis refers to full and partial dentures. During dental prosthetics treatment, the dentist first prepares the natural tooth by reducing the tooth enamel by the size of dental crown or tooth bridges. Once the tooth is prepared, the dentist takes your dental impression and sends it across to the lab technician for preparing the prosthetic devices. Till the time, the dental crowns or tooth bridges or dentures are prepared the dentist places a temporary crown or cap on the prepared tooth and replaces it with the new one once they are ready. These prosthetic teeth or artificial devices can either be cemented or screwed on to your implant. Cost of dental prosthetic treatment ranges from $2,000 to $4,000, depending on your geographic location and the number of teeth that need to be replaced. Treatment time greatly varies depending on your needs and the procedure of treatment.
