Temporary prostheses are prepared to ensure that the patient has a more comfortable eating and a better appearance during the period that should be waited until the permanent prosthesis will be inserted. They also prevent the teeth from migrating in the mouth.


Temporary prostheses allow patients to give an idea of ​​how the final prosthesis will look in terms of use and appearance, and make the necessary changes before final preparation and placement. Today's temporary prostheses are manufactured from an acrylic-based resin to catch a similar look and comfort of permanent zirconium or porcelain dentures. Unlike in the past temporary prostheses, modern temporary prostheses look highly functional and aesthetically good. In terms of durability, it is not as long-lasting and powerful as permanent dentures. Patients may feel very comfortable with the temporary prosthesis and love their appearance. However, immediate fulfilment of the need and satisfaction with the temporary prosthesis should not lead to neglect and delay in the process of installing the permanent prosthesis.

Use of Temporary Prosthesis


A temporary prosthesis can be used for several days or months depending on the type of treatment received. While temporary prosthesis is used only for a few days in treatments that will be completed in a short time such as dental crowns, bridge or dental prosthesis, it can be used for several months in implant treatments where the expected recovery in the mouth lasts long.
