Advantages of iSmile Dental for the installation of removable dentures
iSmile Dental specialists will produce removable prostheses designs for you according to individual measurements. A personal approach allows you to consider all the features of the oral cavity, including the formation of the teeth bite. Most importantly, the manufacture of removable dentures lasts an average of 7 days and allows you to restore chewing function immediately. Modern removable dentures are sucked to the gums and do not require regular removal, which facilitates their care.
Removable prosthetics are used for tooth loss due to age, with a developed form of periodontitis, when it is impossible to save the teeth; in case of injuries. Also, when the installation of implants is difficult or impossible, and when it is impossible to put bridges with unreliable attachments to the remaining teeth. And in cases where the patient does not want to damage healthy teeth.
Modern removable dentures reproduce the whole shape of your teeth and bite. They have a better price compared to other types of prosthetics and implantation.
iSmile Dental produces removable dentures of various types. They have a lightweight and wear-resistant design. You will be able to restore the dentition's aesthetics and chewing load even in the most serious situations. Such prostheses are easy to install, and you quickly get used to them. You can smile without hesitation and, communicate with the people around you, eat typical food.
What are the stages of installing removable dentures?
The process of installing removable dentures takes place in several stages. First, you must make an appointment with the dentist iSmile Dental, undergo a consultation, and diagnose the oral cavity. If there are any problems - undergo treatment. Next, removing the impressions and preparing the foundations for the prosthesis is necessary. After manufacturing, the model is tried on and adjusted to the patient's characteristics. And finally, the prosthesis is given the final aesthetic appearance and installed.
Once the prosthesis is installed, it will take another time to get used to the design in the mouth. Problems such as distortion of diction may first appear; pain in the gums when pressed; change in taste sensations when worn; increased salivation or gag reflex. Patients take longer to get used to complete prosthetics when there are no teeth left on the jaw, and the distribution of the chewing load occurs in a new way.
Removable dentures require care, namely cleaning with a soft brush, washing in warm water after eating, two times a year visiting the dentistry to check and clean the dentures. In case of damage to the structure, you should contact an orthopedic dentist and restore it.
The best type of removable denture will depend on an individual’s specific needs and goals. However, some popular and well-regarded types of removable dentures include:
- Implant-supported dentures.
- Flexible dentures.
- Precision dentures.
In the case when the patient does not have a single tooth, dentists recommend the installation of prostheses on implants or mini-implants. Implants will act as a support for attaching a non-removable and even removable prosthesis.
The threat of such structures is in the uneven distribution of the load during chewing, leading to the atrophy of bone tissue. The jawbone becomes loose, sags, and thins. The prosthesis ceases to fit snugly; its wearing becomes uncomfortable.
A removable denture cannot hold firmly on toothless jaws. It is held only by a relative fixation on the atrophied anatomical structures of the toothless jaw and by molecular suction of saliva between the prosthesis and the gum.
Modern prostheses allow you not to remove them at night. If it is more convenient for the patient to sleep without an apparatus, the prosthesis must be placed in a glass of water or wrapped with a damp cloth.
Try to speak as much as possible, read aloud, loudly, and in a whisper; train pronunciation, repeatedly repeating words with complex sounds for you; repeatedly pronounce tongue twisters several times a day; do articulatory gymnastics.
Removable dentures or dental plates are the optimal solutions for elderly patients. This is a much cheaper type of denture than non-removable ones. Removable dentures can be total or partial (partial).
Theoretically, a removable prosthesis can serve for 3-5 years, after which it is subject to mandatory replacement. Over time, the removable prosthesis loses its chewing efficiency. This is due to the loss of bone tissue, resulting in a “subsidence” of the prosthesis.
Observe restrictions in the hardness of the food taken: you can not gnaw nuts, crackers, drying, carrots, and other tough food. After eating, it is necessary to remove the prosthesis, rinse your mouth, and rinse the prosthesis in running water.
Dentures restore impaired chewing and speech functions and prevent deformation of the dentition and diseases of the temporomandibular joint. The shape of the face does not change.
The production time of a removable prosthesis, including all stages, is about two weeks. The timing depends on the age of tooth extraction on the jaw and the presence and condition of teeth on the opposite jaw.
