Removable prosthesis

If it is not indicated to realize a fixed prosthesis (crowns, implants and bridges) it may be possible to realize a removable prosthesis, partial or total denture (if no dental element has remained).

<< all treatments

These prostheses must be removed daily by the patient to allow cleansing.
Partial dentures get their stability and retention by engaging residual natural teeth or implant specially placed.

A complete prosthesis (when there remains no tooth) is fully supported by the oral mucosa. Retention is achieved by a suction effect and by the interactions with the lips, the tongue and the cheeks. To ensure adequate support and suitable comfort for a full lower denture is recommended to combine two implants with an attachment system.

Scientific studies and international conventions agreed that a lower full denture supported by two implants is the minimum treatment needed to properly restore the chewing function of an edentulous patient.

The advantages of removable dentures are represented by the fact that they are easy to maintain and are generally more economical than the fixed prostheses. In addition, in the case of large bone defects can ensure the best aesthetic result.
The disadvantages are that they offer a lower comfort compared to fixed prostheses and in the need of regular relining and controls to prevent tooth caries and inflammation of the oral mucosa.
