In situations involving teeth removal, it is necessary to think about artificial substitutes that will restore aesthetics and function to the patient. It is the branch of dentistry that deals with the replacement of lost teeth. It can be divided into fixed and mobile prosthetics.
Mobile prosthetics means "dentures" that can be total (when all teeth are missing) and partial (when there are some teeth in the mouth). On the other hand, fixed prosthetics include crowns (individual replacement for each tooth) and bridges (replaces 2 or more teeth with carriers on the remaining teeth).
