6. Problems involving loss of teeth and their replacement with Impacts or dentures or both together

The loss of teeth leads to cosmetic, digestive and speaking disorders, and so it is very important to proceed with the immediate and correct replacement of said pieces. Replacement is achieved by means of custom-made structures and highly-accurately designed false teeth called PROSTHESES.

The PROSTHESES may be made in such a way that they can be either FIXED or REMOVABLE.

FIXED PROSTHESIS (Prosthesis of Crowns and Bridges)

Corona individualThe advantage of these prostheses is that once they have been placed in the mouth, the patient quickly adapts and gets used to them due to their "EXTREME COMFORT".

The processes involving chewing, speaking and cleaning are very similar to those involving one's own teeth.

In terms of cosmetics, a very natural look is achieved that is highly similar to the original teeth in colour as well as in size and shape.

Corona dentariaThey are prostheses that once made are fixed in the mouth on a permanent basis.

They cannot be removed from the mouth as they are attached and bonded with a special cement to the dental abutments, where they are anchored.

These prostheses are also referred to as "CROWNS AND BRIDGES" and they are "false" dental pieces and "jackets" that in most cases are made of metal and porcelain.Puente fuera de boca

They are used either to REINFORCE teeth weakened by decay, root canal treatment or trauma, or to REPLACE missing teeth. In both cases and to provide support, the presence is necessarily required of one's own teeth or of Impacts. The basic purpose of one or the other is to serve as support "pillars" or abutments.


REMOVABLE PROSTHESIS (Detachable prosthesis)

EsqueléticosThe REMOVABLE PROSTHESIS provides a quick, simple and economical solution for replenishing jawbones that are missing several teeth. It involves the insertion of appliances that hold all the missing pieces and therefore allow for normal chewing and a suitably cosmetic appearance. These prostheses are attached to one's own teeth that remain in the jawbone, which means that they maintain their position and do not move during talking or chewing.

In addition, users have the advantage that they can detach them and take them out of their mouths for cleaning, and subsequently reinsert them without any difficulty at all.

EsqueléticosOn the basis of their professional criteria and depending on the specific circumstances of individual mouths, the dentists may choose between preparing a prosthesis with a "METAL STRUCTURE" (also referred to as SKELETAL) or a "RESIN"Esqueléticosprosthesis. The former is characterised by being somewhat lighterand less bulky than the latter which, in turn, besides being cheaper, has the added option of being able to include extra false teeth if any more of one's own are lost.

In the case of those people with a "total absence of teeth", the type of removable prosthesis to be chosen will always be RESIN and these are referred to as FULL DENTURES. These prostheses perfectly adapt to all the ridges and contours of the gums, attaching themselves in a sucker-like manner when a Implantesvacuum is formed between the surfaces of the prosthesis and the damp mucus membranes in the mouth. Nowadays we use materials that are very flexible and elastic. This makes theseprothesis very comfortable and easy to wear.


When there is a mismatch between the patient and these FULL DENTURES, either through a lack of adaptation and instruction or through the excessive mobility of the prosthesis or nervousness on the part of the patient, the possibility exists of resorting to straightforward treatments with Impacts to ensure the fixation and immobilisation of these FULL PROSTHESES.
