Caries, gum diseases, etc. teeth can be lost due to causes. In this case, it is possible to encounter conditions such as deterioration of aesthetic structure and chewing functions in the mouth. In order to prevent this condition, a prosthetic tooth is inserted instead of the lost teeth. Although prosthetic teeth are usually placed in place of lost teeth, they can also be placed only for aesthetic purposes for those who do not experience tooth loss.

All prosthetic teeth that we use in our clinic have been obtained using materials compatible with oral tissue.

It is also aimed to correct his speech, which has deteriorated due to missing teeth, and to restore the oral aesthetics that he has lost.
