Fixed and mobile restorations

The purpose of prosthetics is to restore the teeth that have been lost due to caries or periodontal disease. It is important to restore the missing teeth in order to restore the aesthetic, chewing and vocal performance. The prosthetic rehabilitations are divided into fixed and mobile. Fixed prosthetics refer to single crowns and bridges, while mobile to partial and full dentures. Their basic difference is that fixed restorations are smaller in volume and are not removed from the mouth, as opposed to mobile which are bulkier and have to be removed from the mouth daily, before bed time.
