An elegant solution for missing teeth is dental implants. Replacing missing teeth has always been a difficult problem. A dental implant provides a foundation for replacement teeth that retain the feel and function of natural teeth. They are also used to stabilise loose dentures.
Dentures are removable teeth replacements for lost teeth.
There are 3 types of dentures:
- Full dentures that replace one or all arches of teeth.
- Partial dentures that replace individual or groups of teeth missing from either the top or bottom jaw.
- Either full or partial implant supported dentures in which implants that have integrated into the jaw stabilise and locate the removable denture.
In recent years fewer full dentures have been made. There is an art to making functional and aesthetic full dentures. Dentists are well trained in this discipline.
Partial dentures have become more common as individual teeth are more likely to be lost from decay, gum disease or trauma. They can be made of plastic or metal castings with teeth retained by plastic on the framework. Metal frame partial dentures are thinner than plastic dentures, are generally better tolerated and more comfortable. The ultimate for convenience and function are Implant Retained Dentures.
