How should lost teeth be completed? Is implant or tooth cut more real? Aesthetic Dentist Dr. Efe Kaya explains.
I don’t want to have my teeth cut!
“I don’t want to have my teeth cut” is one of the most frequently heard phrases from patients. The treatment of missing teeth with the bridge principle goes through prostheses that comply with biomechanical rules.
What is this biomechanics?
The word bio refers to human, that is, living thing. Mechanics will speak of motion. We dentists show our civil engineer status in the mouths of patients by making biological bridges to the relevant region. These over-dental or over-implant bridges established in the mouth are made by observing mechanical and dynamic rules such as moment, stability, tensile as they are used in civil engineering. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a wasteful practice to have teeth cut, since dentists make repairs that do not exceed the biological limits of the human body and comply with mechanical rules. . Although the newest treatment method for missing teeth is prostheses on implants, bridges made by restoring our teeth, that is, by cutting, are still widely used in cases where implant application is not a cure.
What should the patient do?
Patients should trust their doctors. Every mouth and jaw are different, as is every human cat. In this context, it is the doctor’s mission to choose the most appropriate treatment for the patient.
