Sealing of the then caries-free fissures which takes place shortly after the tooth eruption. Runny resin or composite materials are used to prevent the population by the oral flora.

Special impression of the edentulous jaw in motion, i.e. taking the movements of the muscles and mucosa into consideration as they occur when eating and speaking and in facial expressions.

Try-in of a crown, bridge or partial denture framework in order to check the fit in the mouth.
Frenulum labii/frenulum buccae

Full dentures with artificial teeth for the replacement of all 28 teeth of the upper and lower jaw which are held in a plastic. A suction effect ensures the hold of the denture to the jaw.
