Adhesive prosthetics implies a beam bridge connecting the supporting teeth under the prosthesis. It is used mainly in the absence of one tooth, in rare cases if two small tooth units are missing. It is the best option for those patients who, when prosthetics, do not want to process adjacent teeth. It has two types of fastening: a beam type in which a wire beam is used as a fastening and a fastening based on fiberglass.
Features of adhesive prosthetics:
It does not harm the dental units that support this design. The prosthetics system is not painful and does not need painkillers. Depending on the methods of this prosthetics, the procedure does not take a long time. Using fiberglass is no more than three hours, and the use of the beam method is about two days.
A suitable alternative to basic prosthetics
The process of manufacturing adhesive prostheses:
Creating a product is of three types. The first view is on-site creation. The second is the creation of a model in the laboratory (is a more accurate way). The third is a combination of the previous two.
The installation process depends on the method of this prosthetics.
When prosthetics are made of glassy fiber, notches are applied to the supporting teeth, on which bridge-shaped beams are installed.
The method in which the wire beam is used does not need notches, the frame is fixed as a result of etching the tooth surface, due to this the system is firmly fixed.
The disadvantages of adhesive prosthetics include the inability to install in the area of chewing teeth. Since such a design has more ethical implications, it is not long in terms of service life.
