Types of removable prostheses
While it may take some time to get used to removable prostheses - as well as to the fact that they will never offer the same sensation as natural teeth - today's prostheses offer a very interesting option to replace the missing teeth.
There are two types of removable dentures: complete and partial dentures. We will help you choose the type that best suits your situation (if you need to replace only a few teeth or your entire mouth.
Complete dentures are used when all the natural teeth of the upper or lower jaw are missing. They replace the teeth after they have been lost or extracted.
- Classical prostheses are usually placed after all teeth have been removed and the gums and jaw tissues have begun to heal, which takes about 12 weeks.
- Immediate prostheses, as the name indicates, are placed immediately after the extraction of all teeth. These devices replace the patient's teeth during the healing process, but may need to be realigned or redesigned after completion; The placement of the gums tends to evolve during healing process.
When one or more healthy natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw, a partial denture is best used to fit around the still healthy dentition.
