What modern dentistry can offer when it comes to dentures
The word dentures is used in dentistry as a collective term for all forms of replacement of natural teeth. Heavily damaged teeth can be rescued or they are completely replaced.

Dentures will custom-fit and individually made in the master dental laboratory. The digitalization of dentistry provides new, fast and high-precision possibilities for cooperation between the dentist and the dental technician in the dental laboratory. Specialized prosthetic dentistry practices work hand-in-hand with experienced dental technicians to ensure a high-quality denture restoration.
The natural teeth are the hardest material in the human body. Healthy teeth are by nature extremely robust and resistant because they have to withstand enormous mechanical stresses. Nevertheless, they can through dental disease, as caries and periodontal disease, or are severely damaged by accidents or completely lost. Then individual dentures will be needed to replace these teeth in both function and aesthetics.
Modern dentistry offers a wide variety of options for dentures. The most important decision criterion, however, is the current dental situation of the patient. Not every denture is suitable for every human. That’s why an accurate dental diagnosis, a comprehensive consultation and a balance of advantages and disadvantages each measure is the most important prerequisite for the right decision and the success of the treatment. Since even individual tooth gaps affect the entire dentition such. As dental displacements or bone loss may have, dentures should be made promptly.
What types of dentures are there?
Basically, between a removable and one fixed dentures distinguished:
A denture as Partial or full denture belongs to the removable dentures, which can be removed very easily. However, wearing dentures is uncomfortable and uncomfortable for many patients. Moreover, it is often associated with aesthetic and functional limitations. Even so, there are arguments for this solution that dentist and dentistry adviser explain.

Inlays, onlays, dental bridges and partial bridges, crowns and partial crowns, long-term temporaries, veneers and dental implants that are so tightly connected to other teeth or anchored in the mandible or maxilla that they can not be removed. Some materials are so similar to natural teeth that they can not be distinguished from natural teeth. Thus, they also meet the highest aesthetic standards for a beautiful smile with a true charisma.
In addition, there are special solutions from combines fixed-removable dentures such as B. telescopic prostheses. Dentures can also be applied to implants, d. H. on artificial tooth roots, to be attached. This is referred to as implant prosthetics.
Which material is best for dentures?
The dentures must withstand high mechanical stress during chewing and at the same time meet aesthetic requirements. That’s why modern dentistry is different today high performance materials for dentures for use. In the individual selection, it always depends on what type of dentures it is basically and at which point in the dentition this replaces the natural teeth. It is also important, if mainly the Function and resilience must be taken into account or whether aesthetic aspects in the anterior region play a major role. Which material is best suited for dental prostheses thus depends on the individual situation of each patient.
The trend is towards biocompatible dentures: All-ceramics is very close to the natural tooth and has good physical properties. The body tolerates this material very well. Ceramics will for crowns, bridges, veneers and implants used. The color can be adjusted according to the natural tooth color, the ceramic layers are translucent and the dentures so that it is indistinguishable from natural teeth. Also biocompatible zirconia, a full ceramic material, which is also ideal for dentures on implants. In addition, composites are processed.
Gold inlays or crowns of gold are very high quality and are made for teeth in the invisible area of the dentition. They are characterized by a special longevity and robustness. Other metal alloys are used in dentistry. In alloys, however, may also contain ingredients that are not suitable for allergy sufferers.
