These are prostheses that are supported by teeth and tissues-palates, made of plastic and / or metal and can be put in and removed by the patient in one or more tooth deficiencies.
Diagnosis & Application
In the lower jaw, it extends from one side to the other, and in the upper jaw again it covers the palate from one side to the other side. The holding of such prostheses is provided by specially designed hooks (crochets) and / or sensitive holders that come to the teeth in the mouth. All kinds of planning related to prostheses are prepared by your doctor. They are prepared by carrying out both clinical and laboratory procedures together.
Before starting your partial prosthesis, some preparations may be required for your prosthesis. It may be necessary to apply fixed prosthesis to your teeth to support your prosthesis or to do tooth corrections or to prepare small areas called “nail place” on tooth surfaces.
During the appointment phase of your removable partial dentures, called toothed fitting, you will see the pre-finishing state of your dentures with teeth selected by your doctor based on scientific data, taking into consideration your jaw dimension and shape, skin color, age, and so on. If possible, it is recommended that you come to your appointment with a relative and make a decision together and explain your expectations in advance, if any.
The hooks or sensitive retainer parts of partial prosthesis may lose their function over time depending on the use, and loosening occurs in the dentures and their holding decreases. This problem is resolved by your doctor. But it could bring an additional cost.
Especially after the teeth are extracted, the healing phase continues in the first months and the palate changes. By the way, if prostheses were made, the prostheses will get loose after the healing is completed. For this reason, facing or supply may be required.
For cleaning your prostheses and teeth, you should definitely perform the oral care recommended to you. You should use your prostheses during the day for the specified time. When not in use, keep your prostheses in a box with clean water. Keeping the prosthesis dry leads to deterioration of the substance in it.
After the end of your prosthesis preparation, you should check it with your doctor regularly (every six months). In these controls, small problems that you may not have noticed are fixed before they become bigger problems.
