Prosthodontic treatment using face-bow.

Modern prosthodontic treatment is impossible to imagine without using a face-bow or an articulator. This is not a new material or treatment technology. These are the things which are indispensable in prosthodontics. Every prostheses, from a single crown to complex prosthetic procedures, should be made considering the anatomy of a dental apparatus. Articulator is the device which makes it possible to reconstruct lower jaw excursive movements in full under the conditions of a dental laboratory. You'll ask, "How does a technician get the data?" the prosthodontist will give them the information using a face-bow, which makes it possible to fix the correct correlation of the jaws and to reconstruct excursive movements in the laboratory.

Face-bow doesn't replace other kinds of work for the orthopedic dentist, it is not used instead of another procedure. It is an indispensable part in prosthodontics. Dentists also treat teeth, make molds of the teeth, bite rolls using face-bow in their work. Face-bow and articulator use is very important with complex prosthetics cases, reduced occlusion, total prosthetics. The use of a face-bow and, as a result, of an articulator allows avoiding grinding-in in the oral cavity. Any experienced dentist will confirm that any grinding-in in the oral cavity leads to the reduction of the occlusion in the oral cavity. Reduced occlusion starts with an ordinary filling, where a doctor will first produce a reduced occlusion effect, which is followed by an irreversible process. Total reduced occlusion becomes obvious when the joint starts malfunctioning (crunching, crackling, slipping out etc.).

Crowns, bridges.

Dental crowns are the "caps" that imitate the tooth's shape. Dental crowns cap and encircle teeth, reconstructing their shape, size and durability, making them look more attractive.

Advanced zirconium-based crowns are taking place of ordinary metal and porcelain crowns. The advantage of this combination is natural translucency of the crown, which makes it possible to successfully copy a natural tooth. Zirconium dioxide is rightfully called white gold in dentistry, because such crowns are biocompatible with mouth tissues.
