- WITH ANKER (FENCE PROSTHESIS)
Precision Attached Dentures
- What is precision attachment prosthesis (snap prosthesis)?
It is a type of dental prosthesis applied in cases where there are many missing teeth and treatment cannot be performed with fixed prostheses. It is popular among the public because of its secret holders that sit in the slots prepared in the teeth. ‘prosthesis with snaps’Also known as.
- How many days does the construction phase take, how many times do I have to come?
precision connected (prosthesis with snaps) Prosthesis stages are the same as partial stages. Precision-connected prostheses are also prepared in an average of 5 sessions with measurements and various rehearsals. An average of 2 weeks is sufficient for 5 sessions.
- Are snap-in prostheses easy to use?
There are sensitive parts that fit into the slots prepared in the teeth in snap-on prostheses. While they are very tight when putting on and taking off, they are more comfortable to put on and take off over time. It should be installed and removed carefully.
- Will I get used to using snap-in dentures?
This type of prosthesis has metal parts that pass under the tongue in the lower jaw and the palate in the upper jaw, as in the partial prosthesis. The presence of these parts in the prosthesis makes it difficult to get used to at first. However, after a certain period of time, most patients use these prostheses as if they were their own teeth.
- How to clean sensitive connection?
The cleaning of precision attachment dentures is the same as full dentures.
- Can I eat comfortably with snap-in dentures?
Since precision attachment dentures are made with support from both soft tissue and existing teeth, there is no problem in their retention. Cutting, biting and grinding functions can be done easily.
- Do prostheses with snaps move while eating?
The parts of precision attachment prostheses that fit into the sockets prevent the prosthesis from being dislodged, so they do not move while eating. Over time, the casters of sensitive joints may loosen, in which case the tires can be easily changed.
- Will I be aesthetically satisfied with snap-in prostheses?
Since the parts of precision attachment dentures are supported by the teeth, they are much more aesthetic than hooked dentures.
- What should I pay attention to when using snap-in prostheses?
In addition to the things to be considered in the use of full dentures, it is necessary not to damage the sensitive connection parts while inserting and removing them. Attaching and removing should be done slowly and carefully. After making sure that the prosthesis is fully seated, the jaw should be closed, the prosthesis should not be placed by closing the jaw, otherwise damage to the sensitive connection parts may occur.
- Is it possible to repair the snap-in dentures when they break or the teeth fall out?
As with partial dentures, the base part and teeth can be easily repaired in precision attachment dentures. If the tires inside the sensitive joints are loose, they can be replaced, but if the sensitive joints are broken, it is difficult to repair.
- How long does it take to repair dentures with snaps?
As with partial dentures, it is usually possible to repair in 1 or 2 days, although it varies depending on the shape and size of the fracture in precision attachment dentures.
- Is it possible to use snap prostheses in diabetics?
As with partial dentures, precision attachment dentures can be applied to almost every patient, and can be easily applied to diabetics. It may take a long time to heal the bruises and sores that may occur in the mouth after the application, and since there may be a dry mouth problem, the use of special gels and artificial saliva may be necessary.
- Is it possible to use snap prostheses in patients with osteoporosis?
The volume of bone tissue is not very important in precision attachment prosthesis. Since it is a prosthesis made with support from the existing teeth, the number, strength and dimensions of the existing teeth are important.
- Is it possible to use snap prostheses in allergic patients?
First of all, an allergy test is done and it is determined what allergies are. Metal and acrylic materials are used in precision attachment prostheses. If there is a metal allergy, it can be determined which metal it is against and a prosthesis can be applied by using another metal. However, in the presence of allergy to acrylic, the use of precision attachment prosthesis is not possible, in this case implant supported prostheses can be used.
- What is the lifespan of snap-in dentures?
Precision attachment dentures serve for many years when well cared for and hygienic. Depending on use, loosening or breakage of rubber and other parts of sensitive joints may occur. If the supported teeth are lost, the prosthesis must be repeated.
- Is an operation performed on the existing teeth when precision attachment dentures are made?
Since precision attachment dentures have to fit into the sockets prepared in the teeth, the existing teeth have to be covered.
- What are the differences between partial dentures and precision attachment dentures?
Partial dentures have unaesthetic hooks, precision attachment dentures do not have hooks. For partial dentures, it may not be necessary to perform an operation on the existing teeth, for precision attachment dentures, it is mandatory to perform an operation on the existing teeth. For precision attachment dentures, there should be at least 4-6 teeth in the jaw, there is no restriction for partial dentures. The cost of precision attachment denture is slightly higher than that of partial denture.
If a fixed prosthesis cannot be made using the existing teeth in case of a large number of missing teeth, then a removable prosthesis (partial denture and precision attachment denture) A dental implant can be placed in the jawbone for fixed dental prosthesis. While removable dentures are put on and removed, they traumatize the teeth and can cause meltdowns in the jawbone. For this reason, fixed prosthesis to be made by placing dental implants in the jawbone is the healthiest treatment option in case of a large number of missing teeth.
