Removable dental prostheses: clasp prostheses, acetal, nylon and others
What are the consequences of refusing to use removable dental prostheses or using the ones that do not fit into a particular clinical case?
The very name of a removable dental prosthesis makes most patients reject the idea. In our experience, we often see patients who do not have a lateral group of teeth, yet they do not use dental prostheses. The consequences of this are quite negative. Firstly, a whole bunch of facial changes evolves including deep wrinkles of the chin and nasolabial areas, lowering of the lower third of the face, extention, inclination, disposition teeth, etc. This creates an illusion of a senile facial expression and makes the smile rather unattractive. Secondly, it causes functional changes in the temporomandibular joint, reduction of the tone of the chewing muscles, etc.
It is important to understand that the need for a dental prosthesis is due not so much to the aesthetics but the need to restore chewing efficacy. This is especially true if the patient lacks lateral teeth which are invisible when smiling. Properly selected design and materials will allow the patient to forget that there is something alien in his or her mouth, prolong the functionality of the remaining teeth and profoundly improve the quality of life.
Indications to installing removable dentures:
- permanent wearing in case of lack of teeth and impossibility of installing a dental bridges or implants;
- as a temporary constructions used after an injury or installation of implants.
