Dental Prosthetics

Dental prosthetics are the solutions to various health and aesthetic concerns.


A removable partial denture consists of a settlement base with hooks to hold it in place. It is a great option for patients with only a few sporadic missing teeth.

DPid enables each patient to have their unique DPid Code & Identification number embedded in the prosthetic or on their Identification Card. DPid also has an online portal to help make information accessible.


A dental bridge is used to close the space left by missing teeth. It is composed of two main components: an artificial tooth or pontic that fills the gap, and a crown that is placed on the anchor teeth (abutment teeth). A conventional bridge requires healthy natural teeth on both sides to support it. They must be reduced in size by filing to ensure the abutment teeth are strong enough to hold the bridge. The pontic is made of porcelain, so it blends in well with your other natural teeth.

A gap in your smile can cause problems with mastication, chewing, speech, and overall health. Dental bridges are an excellent solution to this issue and can restore both the function of your mouth and the beauty of your smile.

However, it is important to note that a bridge may not be the best option for all patients. For instance, if you’re missing multiple teeth in a row or across different areas of your mouth, it would be more practical for you to choose dentures rather than a bridge. Additionally, dental bridges can require some degree of maintenance and replacement, but with proper oral hygiene, they can last for 15 years or more. Your dentist will examine your oral health to see if a bridge is right for you.


Anyone who has lost one or more teeth wants them replaced as soon as possible. But the best option depends on whether there are still healthy, adjacent natural teeth that could serve as supports for a bridge or the size of the gap in your mouth and the overall condition of your gums, tooth roots and facial muscles.

Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that we can custom design to fit your upper or lower dental arch and visually match the surrounding teeth. They can be full or partial, replacing all the teeth on a dental arch or just a few that are missing. They can be fixed or removable and can be worn over the top of your gums to form an overdenture or they can be attached directly to implants for a more stable and permanent solution.

Removable dentures can help fill the gaps left by missing or removed natural teeth, but they don’t address the underlying problems caused by the lack of healthy tooth roots and gum tissue. This leads to bone deterioration in the area where the root once existed, and it can also cause the remaining teeth to shift position, which alters your smile and bite and increases the risk of future tooth loss. This is where a partial denture can be very effective, as they are anchored or latched onto the teeth that remain and can help to prevent these other issues from occurring.


If your tooth is too damaged for a filling but not quite bad enough for a crown, you may require an inlay or onlay. These restorations are made from gold, composite, porcelain, or other materials and fit into the remaining tooth structure like tiny puzzle pieces. They are color-matched to the surrounding teeth for a natural look, and can be artistically sculpted for a beautiful smile. They are also stronger than composite fillings, and last longer as they do not shrink during the curing process like regular dental fillings.

Dental inlays and onlays can be used for the chewing surfaces of a tooth, but they are most commonly used for back teeth that have significant damage. They are usually bonded with a dental adhesive or cement to seal the cavity and prevent further decay and bacterial infection.

While inlays and onlays are stronger than fillings, they still need to be treated with care. If you neglect to brush and floss your teeth regularly, bacteria will enter the inlay or onlay again and cause further decay, possibly requiring a replacement.

The dental prosthetics market is growing at a rapid pace. Increasing diagnosis and treatment rates for dental diseases, rising per capita dental expenditures, and higher availability of premium dental products are all driving the growth of this industry.


Implants are titanium replacement tooth roots that integrate with your jaw bone. They are bio-compatible and do not reject the body’s tissue, so they have a very high survival rate (93-98%) at five to ten years. In addition, dental implants help prevent bone loss in the empty space where a natural tooth has been lost.

A single implant with a crown is used to replace one missing tooth, or it can be incorporated into a bridge that replaces more than one missing tooth. A crown consists of an artificial tooth that looks and feels like a natural tooth and a metal post called an abutment, which connects the crown to the implant. Abutment screws are inserted into the holes drilled into the jawbone to hold the abutment in place. The abutment screw and dental cement are then used to connect the prosthesis to the abutment.

The positioning and restoration of an implant can be determined by plaster models, CT scans with CAD/CAM simulations and surgical guides called stents, or the insertion of a surgical guide in the gum to create an osteotomy for the placement of the implant body. The success of the treatment depends largely on the thickness and health of bone and gingival tissues and the patient’s overall health. Chronic conditions, including diabetes and heart disease, long-term steroid use, and previous radiation therapy to the jawbone can slow or interfere with healing and implant integration.
