Installation of Fixed Teeth

Dentists prefer using dental installations in certain complex cases due to their good results, which help prevent many serious complications that may occur later. The type of installation suitable for the patient is determined by the results of their specific medical examinations. Therefore, we will mention in some points the definition of fixed dental installations, the cases they treat, and the technique used, as follows:

  • Fixed dental installations are the optimal treatment for cases suffering from damage to part of the tooth, cracking, or minor fractures.
  • Doctors prefer them in cases requiring the installation of one or two teeth only.
  • Fixed dental installations require a support structure on which they are installed.
  • Fixed dental set installations require the teeth to be drilled and the front layer of the enamel covering the teeth to be removed in order to securely fasten the teeth onto them.
  • In some cases where the affected teeth are completely extracted, and the doctor decides that fixed teeth are the most appropriate solution based on the medical history of these cases, they are forced to create a bridge between the adjacent healthy teeth to the extracted tooth. Additionally, the adjacent teeth need to be prepared before installation by drilling them and removing a layer of enamel so that the dentist can securely fasten the teeth onto them.
  • They are not used in cases where the tooth or molar has been extracted due to the lack of a support structure to secure them.
  • Fixed dental installations consist of bridges or crowns installed on the affected teeth or molars.
  • They are made of various raw materials such as porcelain, emax, or zirconia.
  • The dentist determines the appropriate raw material type for fixed dental installations for the patient based on their medical history or the presence of sensitivity to any of these materials.
  • Fixed dental installations are usually used for posterior teeth or molars due to their ability to withstand the functional pressures specific to teeth in this area. As for emax, it is used for anterior teeth because it is a highly transparent material that reflects light and gloss on the teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing.
  • Fixed installations cannot be moved by the patient once the dentist places them correctly in the clinic. Therefore, in case of any problems, the patient should go directly to the treating dentist. Read also about removable dental installations through this article.

Best Fixed Dental Installations

There are different types of fixed dental installations, each with the cases in which they are used. We will list these types and when and how they are used in the following points:

Dental Crowns

  • Used on only one tooth and are fastened to its surface without replacing any missing teeth next to it.
  • Not used in cases of tooth extraction due to the lack of anything to anchor them onto.
  • Require the tooth to be drilled in all directions in order to properly fit the crown onto the tooth.

Bridges

  • Drilling the tooth is necessary to install the crown, as it requires removing a portion of the enamel layer of the teeth to securely fasten them onto it.
  • Installed on the surface of one or more teeth and can replace any missing teeth adjacent to them.

Veneers

  • Require minimal drilling or a very thin layer of the enamel layer of the teeth due to their ease of bonding with dental adhesives, and drilling is only done in the front part of the tooth.

Endocrown

  • It is a type of installation made of emax material.
  • It is placed on teeth that have undergone nerve treatment inside instead of installing a post or core.

Fixed dental installations are made from various chemical materials that suit various medical conditions. We will mention these installations as follows:

Zirconia Installations

  • The most important and best typeof dental installations.
  • The strongest dental installations and the most durable.
  • Zirconia installations consist of a single layer of strong zirconia material that has the same natural color and smooth shape as natural teeth.
  • Zirconia installations do not contain any metallic content, making them the first and most suitable choice for many patients.
  • One of the most important features of these installations is the absence of foul odors or the occurrence of any inflammation.

Porcelain Installations

  • Porcelain installations consist of two layers, an inner metal layer covered with an outer layer of porcelain, which is characterized by its color and shape similar to the patient’s natural teeth.
  • They are one of the most famous and widely used types of installations due to their simple and affordable cost suitable for all patients.
  • Requires special care for the teeth and gums and keeping the mouth healthy to maintain the porcelain layer and prevent the appearance of the metal layer behind it.

Emax Installations

  • One of the best types of installations and the safest.
  • They do not contain any metal in their composition.
  • Consist of a single layer of emax material.
  • Less strong compared to zirconia installations but still strong and can withstand any pressure applied to the front teeth.
  • One of the most aesthetically pleasing types of dental installations, so this installation is the only one used for cosmetic purposes.

What Are the Methods of Fixing Teeth?

Fixed dental installations are installed by placing them in the affected area, then attaching dental crowns to them and cementing them, which gives them strength and permanent adhesion, making them difficult to remove even in cases where some dental or oral problems occur or occur during installation.

There are various types of crowns used in the fixing process, such as:

  • Porcelain Crown: The porcelain material used in it is characterized by not causing sensitivity to the teeth, but its disadvantages include not reflecting light to the required extent, making the shape of the teeth dark, in addition to being prone to cracking and peeling over time and use.
  • Metal Crown: The oldest crowns used in the process of fixing fixed dental installations, where it relies on implanting a tooth made of gold, silver, or palladium. These crowns last for many years with the patient, and they are preferred to be used in the posterior teeth because their gold or silver color is not suitable for the natural color of teeth.
  • Zirconia Crown: This crown is made of zirconia material similar in color to natural teeth due to its absence of any metals, so its cost is high compared to the other crowns mentioned.

How Are Fixed Teeth Installed?

The process of installing fixed teeth involves several steps determined by the doctor based on the result of the patient’s medical examinations, and we will clarify these steps as follows:

  • Preparing the teeth to be installed and preparing them for the operation, where the doctor completely removes the decay from the affected teeth and sterilizes them, then takes measurements of these correct teeth in order to manufacture a crown of the same measurements. The doctor also installs any additional supports needed for these teeth. This step takes 50 minutes and often can reach 90 minutes. Then the second step where the doctor installs a temporary crown to protect the teeth from any pressure and lasts for less than two weeks. The third step is installing the permanent teeth, which is the final step, where the doctor ensures the installation of the permanent teeth or crowns in their correct places and suitability in color to the rest of the teeth in the mouth, and this step takes from a third of an hour to half an hour, so it is not long and does not take a lot of time.
  • And the difference in the technique of installing each type of dental installation in terms of the number of teeth to be installed or expanded to the adjacent missing teeth determines the functional purpose of each type, where the crown installation technique is considered a cosmetic method of various cosmetic procedures, while the endocrown is a therapeutic method for teeth that have been modified with nerves inside them.

Duration of Fixed Teeth Installation

The process of installing fixed teeth takes place in three steps, and the first step is preparing the teeth and preparing them for the operation, where the doctor completely removes the decay from the affected teeth and sterilizes them, then takes measurements of these correct teeth in order to manufacture a crown of the same measurements, and the doctor installs any additional supports needed for these teeth. This step takes 50 minutes and often can reach 90 minutes, then the second step where the doctor installs a temporary crown to protect the teeth from any pressure and lasts for less than two weeks, and the third step is installing the permanent teeth, which is the final step, where the doctor ensures the installation of the permanent teeth or crowns in their correct places and suitability in color to the rest of the teeth in the mouth, and this step takes from a third of an hour to half an hour, so it is not long and does not take a lot of time.

From the information mentioned in the article about the types of installations and the raw materials they are made of, we can deduce the average lifespan or duration of installing these teeth, which ranges between 10 and 15 years, and can reach 20 years also in case of preserving them and committing to their cleanliness and adhering to the routine of brushing them and sterilizing the mouth with medical mouthwash against any infection, and they can be replaced after that with another type of installation or the doctor can remove them.

Tips After Teeth Installation

Despite the simplicity of the procedures for fixing various types of fixed dental installations, there are some problems that may occur to the patient if he does not follow some medical guidelines prescribed by the doctor, and we will mention these problems in detail in one of the following titles in the article, but let us now talk about these tips in the few lines that follow as follows:

  • Avoiding hard food that may affect the stability of the installations.
  • Brushing the teeth 3 times a day with the appropriate brush for tooth sensitivity at this time and the appropriate toothpaste.
  • Following up with the doctor to ensure the success of the teeth installation and control any problem that may occur to the teeth before any exacerbations occur.
  • Avoiding pressing the teeth on anything hard or harsh so as not to cause cracks in them or break the installations that have been placed.

Method of Cleaning Fixed Dental Installations

Fixed dental sets or installations require a special care regimen to maintain them for a long time in the patient’s mouth, and we will explain the steps that should be followed for cleaning the installed dental set as follows:

  • The dental set should be removed from its position in the mouth after each meal and rinsed well with water to clean it from any residues that may be stuck on its surface.
  • The patient can use a towel next to the sink or inside it or fill it with water to preserve the set and prevent it from breaking in case it falls while being cleaned by the patient’s hand.
  • The set should be handled with care and gentleness, ensuring not to cause any damage to it.
  • The mouth should be cleaned after removing the set with water or brushing it with toothpaste to ensure that there are no impurities or food residues.
  • The fixed teeth should be washed at least once a day with water and its special soft brush and dedicated mouthwash to remove any deposits that may accumulate on its surface, and to clean the installation holes or dental set adhesive in the gums.
  • Soaking the set in a medical solution or water during sleep to keep it moist.
  • Rinse the set well before putting it back in the mouth to remove any traces of its medical solutions on its surface so that the chemicals it contains do not harm the patient.
  • Adhering to the number of special follow-up sessions with the doctor to ensure the health and safety of the set.
  • Consulting the doctor immediately in case of any abnormality in the set or teeth and mouth in general.

  • Inability to eat in the few days following the teeth installation, especially if the installation is in the front teeth.
  • Increase in saliva secretion from salivary glands in the week following the installation of the installations.
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold drinks and foods.
  • Feeling pain when pressing the jaws while speaking or attempting to bite and chew food.
  • Regular follow-up during the days following the installation of the installations, in addition to periodically ensuring the health of the mouth and teeth in order to detect any problem early and solve it before any complications occur.

Are There Any Side Effects of Fixed Dental Installations?

Fixed dental installations are one of the safest techniques used in solving dental problems, and they do not have any side effects. The chemical materials they contain have quality that does not affect the patient’s body health and does not negatively reflect on the safety of the mouth and teeth.

However, in some cases where patients’ teeth are sensitive due to the step of cooling the teeth or removing part of the enamel layer due to a hypersensitive reaction of their teeth to any chemical substances in general, where the nerve is affected and the patient feels pain, so the tooth in this case needs nerve filling to avoid pain.

In case of neglecting dental hygiene or brushing with toothpaste and dental floss, food residues may accumulate between the small gaps of the teeth, leading to bacterial growth and infection in the mouth and gums.

What Are the Alternatives to Fixed Dental Installations?
