Modern technologies and applied materials expand the therapeutic possibilities of the dental industry, however, it is still impossible to save the tooth.
In this case, we are talking about prosthetics - the installation of orthopedic structures in the patient's mouth.
Large selection of dentures makes possible the solution of any dental problem. It remains an open question of choosing a particular orthopedic product.
Bridging prosthesis is a non-removable design used in the case of minor defects in the dentition( absence of 1-2 teeth in a row).Products are attached to healthy teeth on either side of the existing defect.
The material and method for m
brazed - soldered single crowns, practically not used in modern orthopedics due to poor quality;
However, non-removable dentures have a number of significant drawbacks:
Partially removable dental prostheses belong to a variety of devices used in the complete absence of dentition. Prosthesis with partially removable products is carried out if one or more healthy teeth are preserved in the jaw of the patient, that is, the prosthesis relies not only on the gum but also on the supporting teeth.
When considering a group of orthopedic products is classified according to the material of manufacture on:

Plate prostheses are one of the most common designs used to restore the dentition even in case of complete loss of teeth.
Modern products are made of nylon, rubber, acrylic, etc. The base of the prosthesis, which is pink, is made on the basis of an individual cast of the patient's jaw( upper or lower).
It is at the expense of this basis that the remaining parts of the structure( artificial teeth, clas- mers) are joined together, and the chewing load is redistributed to the gums.
A number of advantages of this type of products are:
Among the shortcomings of lamellar prostheses:
On the question of what removable dentures to use is best unequivocal opinion is not. The most popular opinion - removable dentures are designed for people of advanced age. However, in the modern world, among patients of all ages, removable and non-removable products are equally popular.
When making a choice in favor of this or that design, it is necessary to take into account a number of factors:
Psychological attitude .Many do not favor removable orthopedic products, since they believe that they can fall out at the most inopportune moment. Although there are no grounds for concern: provided the quality of the dental procedure is high, the risk of such an incident is minimal.
The most suitable option for holders of toothless jaw will be an acrylic prosthesis. However, in order to improve the fixation of the product, implants can be used, if, of course, the wallet allows.
Nylon structures are recommended to be used only temporarily. The aesthetics of the products do not overlap the list of "side effects" when worn, and the cost of the structures is quite impressive.
With small defects in the dentition and the absence of the possibility of purchasing non-removable products, the best choice is a clasp prosthesis. It will help not only restore the chewing function, but also strengthen the loosened teeth.
In addition, being in front of a choice, do not forget to take into account contraindications to wearing certain prostheses.
To quickly get used to the prosthesis, we recommend that you adhere to the following rules:
The easiest way to clean dentures from food remains is to rinse with water. For this purpose, boiled water is used. In addition, orthopedic structures should be treated with special solutions that are already sold as ready-made form or as a tablet dissolving in water.
Periodic mechanical cleaning of products using a toothbrush and paste for prostheses is also recommended. All of the above methods are also applicable in the case of partially removable structures, for example, clasp.
Repair of removable dentures takes place only if the artificial teeth have been damaged, in case of a defect in the basis of the design, its complete replacement is required.
What removable dentures exist, how to choose them and how to take care of them will tell the doctor dentist:
To determine which removable dentures are best and will suit you will help patients' reviews.
To my rather old age I had to remove the molars - I became the owner of a toothless jaw. Given my periodontitis, I opted for clasp removable dentures.
Installation and previous procedures for me were painless, but it was not so easy to adapt: at first I always rubbed my cheeks, gums and tongue, I could not get used to them for a long time, although I did not take pictures for the night.
Pleased with the appearance of products - like real teeth! The design is lightweight, compact. .. In general, I'm happy, for 5 years now prostheses help me out.

With age, prosthetic part of the upper jaw( 2 incisors, 7 on the left, right canine and eight on the right).They put plastic prosthesis, stood for more than 20 years, but eventually sagged.
It was advised to replace it with cermets. Alas, no luck: in 3 years the seven became rotten - the prosthesis should be removed. It's a pity! It is worth something, it's a lot! It would be better if the plastic prosthesis remained. ...
