Removable Dentures

Types of removable dentures

The removable dentures are used when a complete or partial loss of teeth, especially regarding the loss of posterior teeth.

Removable dentures can be used even in case of loss of one chewing teeth.

The arsenal of modern dentistry, there are manufacturing techniques dentures, with ultra-easy, high wear resistance, and aesthetic properties.

Bulky and unsightly dentures, which our grandparents for the night was left in a glass with water, forever gone.

In dentistry removable dentures are divided into the following groups:

  • Full removable plate dentures;
  • Partial dentures, which come in several forms:
    • plate prosthesis;
    • immediate implants;
    • clasp prostheses;
    • removable sectors or segments of the dentition;
  • Conditionally removable dentures.

Full removable plate prostheses

Full removable plate prostheses used in the complete absence of teeth on one or both jaws.

Their task – to make up for the absence of all teeth.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are used in the absence of individual teeth or groups of teeth in a dentition.

This type of prostheses used in the loss of the primary chewing teeth and dentition defects large extent.

They can also be used as a temporary prosthesis or in the absence of one tooth.

Plate partial dentures

Plate partial dentures used to restore the lost fragments of the dentition and the most simple and affordable.

Immediate implants

Immediate implants can be used as a temporary structure that is superimposed on the jaw “immediately remove the teeth or in preparation for a permanent prosthetic implant.

Clasp (German Bugel – arch) prosthesis can be used in almost all cases related to the lack of teeth, both full and partial.

Bar prosthesis – the most reliable, expensive, and comfortable design.

Its main difference is that the chewing load is distributed evenly between the gingival surface of the jaw and teeth preserved, in contrast to partial dentures, where the entire burden falls on the gums.

In the manufacture of prostheses made a precise calculation and simulation of all elements of the prosthesis.

They are also used as a clasp denture immobilized, splinting with periodontitis and increased tooth mobility.

 

Removable sectors or segments a unilateral prosthesis used in the loss of several posterior teeth on one side of the jaw.

Conditionally removable implant, are typically used when the loss of one chewing teeth. Such a prosthesis can be attached to the adjacent supporting teeth with metal legs. Supporting elements of the prosthesis can adhere to the tooth or fixed with the help of light-cured cement. Such denture patients do not need to shoot, so he called a conditional-removable. Of what made modern dentures?

Modern dentures are made from dental acrylic plastics by injection molding, hot and cold kompressatsionoy polymerization.

The use of such plastic prosthesis allows for a long time to maintain their properties – shape, color, density, and strength.

Teeth are used in the manufacture of artificial limbs, produced in the form of ready sets, differing in colors, shape, size.

This allows you to pick up that set of teeth that the patient wants.

Caring for removable dentures

Removable prostheses require periodic cleaning, as they lie on the gingival surface of the jaw and create badly washed by the band.

It is also necessary to periodically remove dentures and after meals to clean the surfaces.

Then you need to rinse your mouth thoroughly and return the prosthesis in place.

Optimally to clean dentures every day, at least – before going to sleep, and how best – after each meal.

Can I leave the dentures at night? After the evening hygienic procedures to clean the prosthesis and mouth, it is quite acceptable.

It all depends on the willingness of the owner of the prosthesis to leave him in the mouth at night or vice versa, take a break from his presence.

Many dentists recommend in the first weeks after prosthesis to keep dentures in your mouth at night for best adaptation.

What must be careful when using the prosthesis?

Patients with removable dentures are not recommended to use highly viscous and sticky products such as toffee, chewing gum, etc.

These products may stick to the denture and may contribute to breakage.

At first, you should not eat solid food. On a special diet is not talking, but in the first weeks of the field of prosthetics to make well-chopped food in small portions.

To practice the skill of chewing, you can use chopped slices of fruit – they are pretty tough but not hard enough to break the denture.

If the denture causes uncomfortable sensations in the mouth or rubbing the gums, you should ask your dentist to correct.

Whether to keep removable implants in a glass of water?

Previously, when the denture base was made of rubber, place them overnight in a glass of water, it was necessary since the rubber in the air could split and lose shape.

When were plastic prostheses, they too were placed in a glass of water at night – apparently by force of habit, although the synthetic air is terrible?

It then appeared the publication of that water in the glass is a favorable breeding ground for bacteria, and dentures must be kept dry.

How to be modern removable dentures? Some dentists recommend that in the first months of the prosthesis was kept in a moist environment – in the mouth or a glass of water at night.

They attributed this to the fact that wet conditions are conducive to the final formation and consolidation of properties prosthesis.
