What is removable and non-removable prosthetics
Dental prosthetics is divided into removable and non-removable. So, prosthetics in the complete absence of teeth will most likely be removable, but if it is necessary to replace one or several teeth with a prosthesis, fixed prosthetics are chosen.
A removable prosthesis is modeled on the shape and characteristics of the jaw, and it is held by suction to the gingival surface and on the jaw protrusions. A removable prosthesis is also made according to individual measurements, but it is held at the expense of special wire hooks and support on the gum.
Clasp prosthetics also belong to removable prosthetics – it is durable and durable. To install it, you will also need support on adjacent teeth, as well as a lock mount or mount on metal wire hooks.
An example of combined prosthetics is a prosthesis on telescopic crowns. This prosthesis consists of two parts: the primary part of the crown – the one that is rigidly fixed on adjacent teeth and is necessary for fixing the prosthesis. The secondary part of the telescopic crown is firmly connected to the removable prosthesis and can only be removed with it. The crowns are tightly fitted to each other and, when put on and fixing, look like a telescopic fishing rod, in which when folding one part enters the other. Despite not being very widespread, dentures on telescopic crowns have the advantage of the need to install prostheses in patients with a small number of teeth, who also have a high risk of decay.
Fixed prosthetics include dental crowns (per tooth) or bridges. The first are used when it is necessary to replace the missing tooth crown, destroyed due to caries, trauma. They are made of various materials, the choice of which is made by the doctor, taking into account the indications and contraindications that are individual for each patient.
Bridges replace several neighboring missing teeth at once and are attached to neighboring teeth that have become supporting. Today, the bridge is fixed not only by turning the supporting teeth under the thickness of the crown, but also with the help of special glue, which is a more sparing option with respect to healthy teeth, necessary for support.
