Do you want to replace your missing teeth with the most personalized solution?
There are many types of removable dentures. In order to determine which would be the best alternative for you, you will definitely need a consultation and an oral health assessment with one of our dental experts.
Numerous factors need to be considered, such as how long your teeth have been missing and how many of them are missing, whether you have any crowns or dentures, and your bone quantity / bone density also needs to be checked.
When is a full removable denture recommended?
A full-plate denture is a removable prosthesis that is recommended in case of complete toothlessness. This type of prosthesis is used not only to replace teeth but also gums.
The full-plate removable denture is made of special plastic, but it can also be combined with metal parts. It is important to keep it moist at all times to prevent the original shape of the denture from deforming, as this material can dry out easily.
Thanks to the state-of-the-art technology, the prostheses fit well, do not fall out due to the vacuum effect, restore normal chewing and jaw position, and are the most cost-effective solution.
When is a partial removable denture recommended?
Partial removable dentures are mostly recommended for our patients in the following two cases. On the one hand, if you still have some of your own teeth, but they are not strong enough to hold a fixed solution (bridge). Weakness of the teeth can be caused by some periodontal disease or bone atrophy, as a result of which the teeth will not be able to maintain a fixed denture in the long run.
The other case is when a sufficient number of teeth are not available, but the placement of dental implants is not possible either, for example due to bone loss. In such cases, we will consider whether bone grafting will solve the problem, but there are also cases where the patient’s health status simply does not allow the intervention.

Regular cleaning of removable dentures is just as important as cleaning your own teeth:
its aesthetic appearance can be preserved in the long run
bacteria and fungi that damage the denture can be removed in a timely manner
