Dentures

What is a Denture?

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It may be made of acrylic resin or a combination with various metals.

Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.

Why Use Dentures?

It is very important to replace missing teeth. The ill effects of not doing so can be a shift in remaining teeth, an inability to bite and chew properly, as well as a sagging facial appearance, which makes one appear older than they are.

The beauty of dentures today is that they are designed to be comfortable and functional. They are very similar in appearance to natural teeth, and can improve a smile or facial appearance.

Types of Dentures

Dentures

There are three basic types of dentures, these are:

  • Partial Dentures
  • Full Dentures
  • Implant Supported Dentures

Removable partial dentures

These fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, resting partly on the gums and partly on the remaining teeth. Removable partial dentures may be attached your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Metal frame partial dentures

Removable complete dentures

Dentures

These replace all the teeth in a jaw and fit directly on the gums and supporting bone. Complete dentures can also be made to attach to dental implants.

  • Complete acrylic dentures
  • Complete metal frame dentures

Implant supported overdentures

These are smiliar to conventional complete denture. The difference is that the complete dentures are attached onto dental implants that are used to provide greater stabilization during chewing.

Ask the dentist for more information about which appliance best suits you.

 


义齿

什么是义齿(假⽛)?

义齿是⼀种替代缺齿和周围组织的可摘戴替换物, 由丙烯酸树脂或多种混合⾦属材料制成。

全口义齿可替换所有的⽛齿,⽽局部义齿可以填补缺齿空间,预防其他⽛齿的位置发⽣变化。

为什么使⽤义齿?

替换缺齿⾮常重要。未及时替换缺齿可导致不良影响,包括剩余⽛齿位置改变,无法正常撕咬、咀嚼,⾯部外观出现松弛现象,让患者看起来⽐其实际年龄大。

目前,义齿的一大优点则是功能性强、舒适度高。它们在外观上与天然牙齿⾮常相似,同时可以提升笑容或颜貌。

义齿的类型

义齿

三种基本类型的义齿,包括:

  • 局部义齿
  • 全口义齿
  • 种植义齿

可摘戴的局部义齿

这种义齿可⽤于填充缺齿,它的一部分倚靠⽛龈,一部分倚靠剩余⽛齿。可摘戴的局部义齿通过⾦属钩或精密附着装置来与您的天然牙连接。

  • 丙烯酸局部义齿
  • ⾦属框局部义齿

可摘戴全口义齿

义齿

这种义齿可替换颌上的所有⽛齿, 直接安装在⽛龈和⽀撑⾻骼上。 全口义齿也可以附着在种植⽛上。

  • 丙烯酸全口义齿
  • 金属框全口义齿

种植覆盖义齿

这种义齿与常见的全口义齿非常相似,所不同的是,全口义齿附着在种植⽛上,因为种植牙在咀嚼功能上可提供更大的稳定性。

如果您想了解哪种类型的义齿更适合您,请咨询我们的牙医。
