Prosthodontic treatment is the dental specialty that focuses on the restoration and replacement of teeth using prostheses, such as dental implants, bridges, crowns, dentures, and veneers. The treatment is performed by a prosthodontist, who will evaluate the patient's oral health, create a treatment plan, and perform the necessary procedures to restore the function and appearance of the teeth.
The procedures involved in prosthodontic treatment can range from simple repairs to complex full-mouth reconstruction and may involve the use of dental materials such as porcelain, resin, or metals. The goal of prosthodontic treatment is to improve the patient's oral health, comfort, and appearance.
Prosthetic teeth are made through a process called dental fabrication. It typically involves the following steps:
Impressions: A dental impression is taken of the patient's mouth to create a mold or model of the existing teeth and gums.
Design: The prosthodontist will design the prosthesis based on the impressions and treatment plan. Fabrication: The prosthesis is fabricated using the mold and materials selected for the specific case. This can be done in-house using a dental laboratory or an outside laboratory may be used.
Try-in: The patient tries on the prosthesis for a fitting, and the prosthodontist will make any necessary adjustments.
Final placement: The final prosthesis is cemented or attached to the remaining teeth or dental implants. The specific materials used and the fabrication process can vary depending on the type of prosthesis being made (e.g. dental crowns, bridges, dentures, etc.). The goal is to create a prosthesis that is functional, comfortable, and natural-looking for the patient.
The treatment options in prosthodontics include:
Dental crowns: A custom-made cap that covers a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance.
Bridges: A prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth by filling the gap with a false tooth attached to crowns on the surrounding natural teeth.
Dental implants: A surgical procedure that involves placing a metal post into the jawbone to serve as a replacement tooth root and supporting a crown, bridge, or denture.
Dentures: A removable prosthesis that replaces multiple missing teeth and can be made of various materials such as acrylic resin or porcelain.
Veneers: A thin shell of porcelain or resin that is attached to the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance.
Complete and partial dentures: Removable prostheses that replace some or all of a patient's missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures: Dentures that are attached to dental implants for added stability and support.
Maxillofacial prosthetics: Prostheses used to restore function and appearance in patients who have lost parts of the face or jaw due to injury, disease, or birth defects. The specific treatment plan will depend on the individual patient's needs, oral health, and personal preferences. The goal of prosthodontic treatment is to restore oral function, comfort, and appearance, and improve overall oral health.
The types of dentures used in prosthodontics include: Complete dentures: Replace all of a patient's missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw or both.
Partial dentures: Replace one or more missing teeth and are supported by surrounding natural teeth or dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures: Dentures that are attached to dental implants for added stability and support.
Overdentures: Dentures that fit over remaining natural teeth or dental implants to provide additional stability and support.
Immediate dentures: Dentures that are placed immediately after tooth extractions and serve as a temporary solution until the mouth has healed and a permanent prosthesis can be made.
Custom dentures: Dentures that are designed and fabricated to meet a patient's individual needs, including customized shape, color, and fit.
Conventional dentures: Dentures that are made after the patient's gums have healed following tooth extractions. The type of denture used will depend on the individual patient's needs, oral health, and personal preferences. The goal is to provide a comfortable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing solution for missing teeth.
The two types of complete denture prosthesis are:
Conventional complete dentures: Dentures that are made after the patient's gums have healed following tooth extractions, typically after several months.
Immediate complete dentures: Dentures that are placed immediately after tooth extractions and serve as a temporary solution until the mouth has healed and a permanent prosthesis can be made. Both types of complete dentures can be fabricated using various materials, such as acrylic resin or porcelain, and are designed to restore the patient's ability to bite and chew, improve their appearance, and provide support for the facial muscles. The choice of conventional or immediate dentures will depend on the individual patient's needs and oral health.

After two years chat with the caring, honest coordinator/ translator Christine I have decided and chose Papatya Dental Hospital.
From day one I had a nice feeling about the clinic, beautiful young lady and Emre the professional dentist.
Everyone in the clinic were very kind, treatment was done professionally and highly recommend.
Thank you guys
After long time on Google search, and talking to a lot of people, I have decided on PAPATYA Dental Hospital, in Antalya.
I have chosen PAPATYA Dental Hospital. Already from day one I was started feeling relaxed from the welcoming from the lobby young people, Merve the beautiful young Lady and the handsome young Man Emre. The travel coordinators/translators, Bazi and Toga and the hospitals driver's. The implantation doctor, Dr.Ahmet Göktaş, I do hope that is the correct spelling. He is kind and friendly and above all very good in what he does. The Young dentist have treated me Yesterday, was very gentle and kind. I will find out about he's name on Tuesday when he will work on me again. Not to forget their supervisor, he's just fine person. I don't recall the name but I will correct my report in an other time, I am sure. OK, take good care of yourselves everyone. Keep Healthy in order to be able to help more people coming to your way.
I had some teeth problems regarding fillings, veneers and implants. Papatya is a life saver, the implants installing process wasn’t hard at all, it took less than 1 hour for 3 implants, I came back after two months after the implant was done, zirconia crowns are the best materials and they suggested it for me. I’m so happy with my smile makeover, thank you Papatya for making me smile again
I used to have couple of missing teeth since I wasn’t caring much about my teeth and I regret it, Dr. Ahmet is the best implant specialist I’ve seen. He tell you the best treatment for you and he answers all your questions. He is really so experienced and professional. Thank you for everything and special thanks to Dr. Ahmet and his assistant
They take their work seriously, they are not boutique dental clinic they are a dental hospital. I around 7 implants and plenty of veneer work. on two visits the treatment plan was implemented as we agreed no hidden fees. Get your teeth sorted here i highly recommend them :)
I texted Dr. Anilcan on his personal number and he was so helpful, I had some sensitivity issues. After I got my teeth done I haven’t had any ace or sensitivity. If you’re looking to get your teeth done go for it they’re the best in Antalya in terms of quality and prices
I’m honestly glad i chose this clinic, I had 2 implants and Emax veneers set and the outcome is amazing! I was really pleased with my dental treatment and my stay, Konyaalti is a great place for relaxing and they are next to it. No regrets, you won’t be disappointed
I had an unfortunate fight with my Airbnb host over some accommodation issues and my teeth got damaged, I went to Papatya for a check-up for my front teeth. They were so calming and helpful. Lucky me they had their orthodontist working on that day so they fitted me in. My front two teeth were swinging a bit and Dr. Hasan did an amazing job just in about 30 mins. He told me to go for a check-up after two weeks since I was going back home. I went for a check-up back in home and everything went fine. Thanks to Dr. Hasan my front teeth are still healthy. They have an amazing staff, Thank you Papatya you’re a lifesaver.
I had some orthodontic problems back at home and I wanted to change my teeth' appearance so bad!, Dr. Eren helped me with this and they look astonishing Clinic is clean and the staff is very overwhelming, highly recommended!
The best clinic for implants in Antalya! Dr. Ahmed and his assistant were so calm and caring☺️ I got my teeth installed and they look phenomenal! Highly Recommended
