Dental prostheses are all artificial materials prepared for the patient to regain the functions such as chewing and speaking and the aesthetic appearance of the teeth lost for various reasons. Tooth and bone loss is observed in cases where gum diseases cannot be treated. With dental prosthesis, these types of gum problems in oral health are also eliminated. In addition to the oral health gained with dental prostheses, the quality of life also increases.
How Many Types of Dentures Are There?
Fixed Dental Prostheses: These are dental prostheses that the patient can not remove himself, such as crowns and bridges.
Removable Dental Prostheses: These are dental prostheses that the patient can remove himself when desired.
Total Dental Prostheses: Applied in cases where all teeth are missing.
Partial Dentures: Applied in case of partial tooth loss. Partial dental prostheses are attached over the tooth with nails and hooks.
Precision Attachment Dental Prostheses: Applied in case of partial tooth missing. Precision attachment dental prostheses have an aesthetic apparatus that is not visible from the outside.
1- Fixed: They are bridges or crowns made with implant support.
2- Removable: These are prostheses similar to a total prosthesis made with implant support.
Cleaning of Removable Denture Teeth
Regular dental prosthesis care is essential to protect the health of the tissue under the prosthesis and to prevent infections.
• Wash away your dental prosthesis with water after meals.
• Always brush your denture with toothpaste or denture care products before going to bed.
• Do not use abrasive materials in brushing your dental prosthesis.
• Brush your dental prosthesis with a normal toothbrush or a special dental prosthesis brush.
Clean your dental prosthesis care weekly with an effervescent prosthesis cleaning tablet.
