Full dentures replace missing teeth, bone and gum tissue. That makes them ideal appliances for providing not only functionality but also necessary aesthetically-pleasing appearance.
Full denture consists of a thin acrylic base placed on a gum tissue, same in color as the latter, giving that way the appearance of natural teeth emerging from gums.
Patients are able to independently remove and return their full prosthesis on the gum, mostly for hygienic reasons. Adaptation to this kind of appliance is needed, and even though it does not represent the best solution currently available, most patients go for this one due to the price difference.
A partial denture is usually done when patients are missing one or several teeth, but with the inability to have fixed prosthetics. This is an economical solution, made quick and easy, for filling in the spaces, improving chewing ability and having a confident smile.
This denture is usually made with a thin metal framework, which rests close to gums, allowing smooth feel. The framework is supported by natural teeth, providing that way a reliable, secure appliance.
As a temporary solution, it protects gums and prevents further teeth misplacing due to empty spaces.
Partial Skeletal Dentures
The only similarity of partial skeletal dentures to acrylic ones is based on their indications. However, skeletal ones are smaller in size, have reduced possibility of fractures and provide load transmission over existing teeth on the bone.
The stability created with a metal skeleton makes this a great solution. Also, this denture reduces palate coverage. You can use them when the patient has several natural teeth in his mouth.
Bio Dentaplast is a partial denture with hooks that can be transparent or teeth-colored. Its main advantage is not damaging natural teeth. Aside from that, it is stable and highly flexible.
The material of which this denture is made is biocompatible and very light, not causing allergic reactions or disturbing. Consequently, it can be efficiently used for patients who are sensitive to metal. Aesthetically pleasing.
Breflex is a flexible, removable denture made by BREDENT - BREFLEX. Flexible materials used for their creation contain no monomer and are almost indestructible. As a result, Breflex is a perfect solution for people who do not want hooks or who have allergies on monomers. Aside from longevity, it has the advantage of protecting dental glaze.
Valplast is another partial removable denture named by the material used for its production. This material is thermoplastic nylon, which bends when placed inside the mouth due to temperature. If used properly, Valplast dentures are highly flexible and almost indestructible.
These appliances are aesthetically pleasing and biocompatible, which consequently means no side effects. We advise implementation when several teeth are missing, but bridge or implant cannot be made.
