Partial (Modern) Prostheses
What happens if one of the supporting teeth is extracted in partial dentures?
In most cases, there is no need to re-prosthesis. It can be easily added to the areas with tooth extraction. However, it will be better for health to be reconstructed as it will disrupt the harmony of many additional prostheses.
What is a precision-retained prosthesis?
Here, the retention is provided by crowns and retainers made on the support teeth instead of the clasps on the teeth. In these prostheses, which are also known as snap-in prostheses, the moving part is attached to the fixed prosthesis in the mouth with special holders. Their most important advantage is that they can be both aesthetic and more conservative. Their cost is higher than normal partial dentures.
Do clasps rot teeth?
Clips do not rot teeth. The retaining areas created by the clasps on the teeth cause more food to accumulate. With insufficient oral hygiene, tooth decay and gum disease occur especially in these areas. With good cleaning of these areas, such problems will not be encountered.
What is a partial (partial or modern) prosthesis?
They are prostheses that complete missing teeth and can be inserted and removed by the patient. Such prostheses are prostheses that meet chewing, speech and aesthetic requirements by taking support from the teeth, gums and jawbone in front of the edentulous space.
Although such prostheses are called removable prostheses, well-planned and precision made prostheses almost do not move in the mouth during chewing and speaking. However, they can be easily attached and removed by the patient.
In this type of prosthesis, there are structures on the teeth, which are called hooks among the people. The main structure of the prosthesis is metal and has a very thin structure. This makes it more comfortable for the patient to use.
With the new researches in this field, metal-free removable prostheses can be made. The fact that these are both thin and the crochets are in the color of the gums allows us to achieve more aesthetic results. With this system, which we call Deflex, allergic reactions caused by metal can be prevented. In addition, not using metal ensures that the weight of the prosthesis is reduced and it can be used more comfortably by the patient.
