removable prostheses

In cases where partial or all teeth are lost, they are removable restorations that are specially prepared for the person and restore the need for function, speech and aesthetics. Today, although the problem of edentulism has been solved much more comfortably with fixed prostheses on implants, it is the only solution for individuals in rare cases where implants cannot be applied. Although they can meet the needs of the person in terms of aesthetics, speaking ability and eating, unfortunately, they are not as comfortable as fixed teeth. Since the dentures are movable, that is, they can be put on and removed by the patient, the care and cleaning to be applied by the patient is very important for the health of both the prosthesis and the patient.


In cases where the person has lost all their natural teeth, they are prostheses made using fabricated teeth with the help of the measurement taken from the person and the model prepared based on this measurement. At this point, it is very important to be very careful and careful during the measurement taken from the person, and to choose the teeth to be used with the closest hardness and quality to the natural teeth, in terms of the adaptation of the person to the prosthesis. With careful and careful work, the aesthetic and function that the person desires can be restored, but it is certain that it takes time to adapt to the prosthesis. This can be possible with regular physician check-ups, careful attention to the cleanliness of the prostheses and good oral hygiene, starting from the fitting of the prosthesis.


Removable partial dentures are dentures prepared by protecting the existing teeth in the mouth. In order for the person to be able to function, speak and meet aesthetic needs with these prostheses, the retention of the prosthesis must be good, balanced and in harmony with the natural teeth in the mouth. For this reason, the design, shape and position of the retainer parts that provide the connection and transition between the prosthesis and the teeth in the mouth are as important as the selection of the teeth to be used and the realization of a tooth alignment compatible with the natural teeth. Because these retaining parts should be designed in a way that will enable the patient to easily put on and take off the prosthesis, but not to exert excessive force on the support teeth, to ensure that the prosthesis does not move during chewing, and also not to disrupt the aesthetics.

In partial dentures, as in full dentures, a very sensitive work is very necessary for the adaptation of the individual to the prosthesis, and paying attention to the cleaning and maintenance of the prosthesis is very important for the health of the person and the prosthesis.
