What is a Dental Prosthesis?

Dentistry Services

A dental prosthesis is an artificial device that allows the replacement of one or more teeth that, for various reasons, have been lost. Its main function is to return the masticatory function to the patient, and that he can express himself correctly. Given the lack of teeth, the aforementioned could not be done without a prosthesis.

In our dental clinics our implant specialist makes a detailed study of each patient to obtain the best aesthetic and functional results according to their assessment and diagnosis.

Benefits of Dental Prostheses:

  • Chewing and eating becomes easier.
  • Pronunciation is improved when speaking.
  • Improves facial aesthetics since wrinkles in the labial area that occur when there are missing teeth are filled again.
  • Better quality of life and improves self-esteem.
  • They are resistant and long lasting.

Why choose CDC?

Whether due to trauma, periodontal diseases, or the passage of age, the loss of dental pieces brings us great consequences. To start problems eating and chewing. Moreover, the wear of other teeth that have to replace the function of missing teeth. Beyond this, displacement of other pieces occurs when trying to occupy the position that has been left empty. At Clínica Dental La Cuesta, we have qualified dentists with years of experience in the area of dental prosthetics.

At CDC, we seek the health, aesthetics, and comfort of our patients. This is why we understand how emotionally and psychologically affected we can be by not being able to smile like before. Our team will give you the confidence and support you need to make the process as easy as possible. We work each case in a particular and personalized way. Our motto is: “You will feel at home”.

In our centers we are at the forefront of technology. We have state-of-the-art devices that allow us to perform a millimeter analysis of the entire teeth and mouth. With 3D CT ( Cone Beam Computed Tomography ), we can make a three-dimensional image of the teeth, jaws and mandible. With the CAD-CAM robot technology (“Computer Aided Design” and “Computer Aided Manufacturing”) we send the virtual data for the design of the prosthesis and the manufacturing process is programmed. This three-dimensional digital software used for prosthetics and implants allows us to minimize errors, have greater accuracy, maximum quality and faster service.

Types of Dental Prostheses

Removable Prosthesis: They are indicated for edentulous, partial (one or more missing teeth) or total patients (to replace all the teeth that are no longer in the mouth). They are a good solution if you are looking for a more adjusted price since it does not require any type of surgery.

Fixed Prostheses: These are implements that are used to replace one or more missing teeth with artificial ones that allow morphofunctional and aesthetic recovery. They are solidly cemented or anchored to properly prepared pillars. The most commonly used types of fixed prostheses we have are:

Crown: Piece of total coverage of the affected tooth, conveniently modified to restore aesthetics and function.

Fixed bridge: With the bridge one or more teeth are replaced and it is supported on abutment (neighboring) teeth. Among the materials that are most used for the manufacture of fixed prostheses we have: Zirconium, ceramic and ceramic on metal.

Implant prosthesis: This type of prosthesis, unlike the fixed one, is anchored to an implant. The most commonly used are those screwed to a unitary implant, or in a slightly larger edentulous area. Two or more implants can be placed and a fixed bridge is placed over them. This in order to replace one to several teeth. If, on the other hand, it is necessary to replace an entire arch, we have hybrid prostheses, which are total prostheses screwed to the implants.


  • Brush daily (rinse and brush with a denture brush).

  • Brush it gently (by brushing it delicately you will avoid damage).

  • Do not use hot water (water must be warm, never hot water).

  • Use mouthwash (after brushing your teeth and mouth use rinse).

  • Use of auxiliary hygiene techniques such as dental floss, interdental brushes and oral irrigators to extend the life of the prosthesis.

  • If you are a carrier of prostheses on implants, you also have your way of maintaining and hygiene, in the office with the dentist.

  • Important visit to the dentist every six months.

Frequent questions

In the case of removable prostheses, it is important to handle them carefully to prevent them from falling to the ground. Hot water should never be used to clean them as they could warp. To avoid accidents, do not place your prostheses in napkins or handkerchiefs, for this the use of plastic boxes is recommended.

There are cases in which when placing the prosthesis (the upper one is more common) you suffer from nausea (retching) and it is completely normal. We must remember that we are placing a foreign object to the body, just like discomfort, it disappears over time. It can also produce a bad taste and irritation.
You must be very patient, remember that at first the mucous tissue (gum) must get used to the prosthesis, usually it is initially painful and uncomfortable. This discomfort may be present for a few weeks and then gradually subside.
