Dentures

For a glistening smile

Dentures are an option when fixated works are not doable due to situation in your mouth. New materials and new technologies can be used to make dentures that fit well, are comfortable to wear and look natural.

Dentures made for patients who have lost all their natural teeth are called complete or total dentures. Total dentures can be additionally fixated in the mouth using dental implants – ALL-ON-6 system. Dentures made in cases when one or more teeth are missing are called partial dentures.

What is the duration of dentures, that is, is there a warranty period for them?

Doctor’s support, proper care and maintaining oral hygiene are highly important for the duration of dentures and, consequently, patient satisfaction, and dentures can last a lifetime if oral hygiene and the state of patient’s dentures are maintained properly. Dentures come with a warranty of several years.

ALL ON 6

FIXED TEETH ON IMPLANTS ALL-ON-6

ALL-ON-6 system is a special kind of complete (total) dentures which is fastened onto dental implants.
It is used in cases when all teeth are lost or when it is not possible to achieve adequate stability with complete or partial dentures.

Four to six dental implants are inserted into the jawbone and they serve as pillars which support the dentures. Implants are like small screws that are fixated into the bone and have an element on their outer part onto which the dentures are attached.

Supporting the dentures with implants achieves better stability and a part of the chewing force is equally transposed onto the bone through the implant.

This solution allows the mucosa to be under less stress and allows the patients to produce higher force, i.e. chew tougher food with dentures staying in their place.

COMPLETE (TOTAL) DENTURES

They are made for individual jaws in cases of complete loss of teeth. In comparison to partial dentures, their construction is simpler and they consist of the denture base onto which teeth are attached.

Total dentures lie directly on the gingiva which covers the bone.

The base of the denture is a part which sticks to the mucosa and is made from a very thin metal part,  and a pink acrylate, the colour of which is blended into the surroundings of the mucosa. The base of the mucosa is made to be as large as possible. The chewing force which affects the artificial teeth in the dentures has to be transferred onto the mucosa and the dental lining through the base.

Since the mucosa is unable to withstand high pressure, it is necessary to distribute the chewing force onto a as large surface as possible, which is achieved by increasing the base of the dentures.

The dentures need to be taken out at least once a day and be cleaned. Most people take them out before going to bed. You should put your dentures in a glass filled with water or denture cleaner.

Regular visits to the dentist are as important for people with dentures as for people with natural teeth. All persons who wear dentures shouldget a regular dentist appointment at least twice a year.

PARTIAL DENTURES

They are used in cases when one or more teeth are missing, regardless of whether the remaining teeth are natural, covered with crowns or bridge(s).

Partialdentures are more difficult to construct than complete ones as they have elements which are used to be attached to remaining teeth.

These elements have a dual role; they hold the dentures close to the remaining teeth and they transfer the chewing force onto other teeth.

With more advanced versions, these retention elements are completely invisible and have the appearance of a complete dental arc.
