What should one know about detachable dental prosthetics?


Many people are prejudiced against detachable prosthetics. But even despite that this way to restore lost teeth remains one of the most widespread. It has a wide range of indications. It can be contraindicated only in a very limited number of cases. Moreover, this method of dental prosthetics is rather available and affordable.

One of the modern methods to make prostheses is a system of molding pressure of special plastic. This system has a revolutionary method of production of prostheses: plastic is molded under the influence of constant pressure (the same temperature should be kept). This is about the way metals are molded. The other method presupposes that plastic should be boiled. This procedure makes it more fragile and able to cause allergic reactions. IVOCAP-SYSTEM plastic can make a durable, good-looking prosthesis. It will never cause allergy. Moreover, you will not have to take it off before you go to bed.

Detachable prostheses can be of the following types: Clasp detachable prostheses with plastic locks. The word "clasp" has German origin and means arch.

Constructions of this type use not only the patients gums but also the teeth he has for support. It makes the prosthesis more compact. It is also rather durable. You can use this prosthesis for a long time. Moreover, it is easy to use. It is important to know that occlusal load is spread almost the same ways as it is spread when you use your own teeth. Unfortunately laminar dental prostheses cannot do that.

There are 2 types of clasp prostheses: with clampers and with locks. Clasp prostheses with clampers are fixed on teeth with the help of special hooks. They "wrap" the teeth but do not injure teeth enamel. Another type of prostheses has locks instead of clampers. The prosthesis is rigidly fixed and almost immovable. The main occlusal load is spread between abutment teeth. That is why it is important to put metal-ceramic crowns on these teeth. The fastener of the clasp prosthesis with locks is hidden. That is why your teeth will look like natural. It will be impossible to see the prosthesis from the outside. Clasp prostheses with clampers do not have this advantage.

Partially detachable prostheses.

This kind of prostheses is used when it is necessary to replace one or several teeth. It is completely (except for the clampers) made of plastic. That is why it is light easy-to-make, and can be easily adjusted to any jaw. That is why such prostheses are rather affordable. Still, partially detachable prostheses are relatively big and take much space in the mouth cavity. They use the gum for support. That is why such prostheses cannot be used for a long time. However, in cases when temporary prosthetics is needed partially detachable prosthesis is the best variant.

Completely detachable prostheses.

There are cases when only completely detachable prostheses can help to replace all teeth. Completely detachable prostheses are fixed in the mouth cavity because they have a suction cap effect. Still, it is difficult to use this prosthesis on the mandible. Only prosthetics with implants can solve this problem.
