Removable dentures are made in dental laboratory individually for each patient according to the cast of his jaws. In this way, you can restore the missing elements of a row in a large volume. Even with complete adentia – the absence of all teeth. However, there are cases of restoration of small defects.
A removable denture has several varieties:
- Full removable denture.
- Partially removable.
- Clasp prosthesis.
- Nylon prosthesis
- Conditionally removable.
What is included in the preparation for installing a removable prosthesis
- A thorough examination of the oral cavity. Clinical and radiological. Anomalies in the formation of soft tissues, the state of the alveolar bone are revealed. Diagnosis of other pathologies is underway.
- Surgery may be necessary. Complications can arise in the presence of retined (not cut or hidden under the gum) teeth, as well as remnants of the alveoli of the removed incisors, interalveolar and interroot partitions. All this must be removed. If you do not track this point, pain can occur during the period of addiction. There may be a problem with fastening, with a comfortable wear. Therefore, the patient is sent on a first visit to a panoramic picture giving a better view of both jaws and adjacent areas. Additional examinations are not included in the cost of a removable denture.
It must take at least 12 weeks after tooth extraction to begin work on prosthetics. The soft tissue of the gums should fully recover and heal. At this time, a temporary prosthesis is installed so as not to lose the ability to chew food thoroughly.
Prosthetics become salvation in the event of extensive tooth loss. Many people decide on this technique in case of detection of absolute contraindications to implantation. Someone is simply afraid of implanting a foreign body into the bone. Removable prostheses still occupy a leading position in Minsk among the elderly population. Modern medicine provides lightweight, comfortable, plastic options for the “false jaw”. The inconvenient designs used in the last century are no longer applicable.
