False Teethand Teeth Dentures
TemporomandibularJoint issues, a pain in the head or ear, and problems with jaw movement can allbe symptomatic of issues with teeth spacing. This issue arises when the removedteeth leave gaps, which are in turn filled in by the remaining teeth as theymove for placement. This occasionally results in the above mentioned symptoms,and often with an aesthetically unappealing appearance. This can be resolvedwith partial dentures. Fake teeth are usually matched to the normal teeth, andthe color, size and shape is matched to the same teeth as precisely as possible.The dentures are comfortable and with proper dental care and hygiene canfunction just like normal, healthy teeth.
Classificationof Teeth Dentures
Two typesof partial dentures exist, and they are commonly prescribed depending on howhealthy the teeth around the gaps are. Fixed Partial Dentures, or dentalimplant bridges, are installed by attaching artificial teeth straight to the gum tissue or jaw, through a dental implant bridge. They bear a strong resemblance to real teeth and are more comfortable, making them more viable. Onthe other hand, cleaning them is more difficult, and they only function withhealthy teeth. Inflammation, oral problems and bad breath can also affect them,and the procedure is usually pricy. Removable Partial Dentures, or Removabledental bridges, can be placed and taken out whenever the wearer chooses.Consisting of a metal frame with metal clasps, resin base material andartificial teeth, these dentures are preferable to individuals with injured ordiseased teeth. Removable partial dentures can be made of different materials,utilized for denture teeth support. Flipper Partial Dentures are the cheapestones, featuring Acrylic utilized for the pink plastic denture base, to which falseteeth are connected to. Clasping wroughtwire is fixed into the base and utilized for clasping the normal teeth. Placementcan be performed right after the tooth is taken out, but is not a permanentsolution. Cast Metal Partial Dentures consist of cast metal, and are morestable due to its alteration of the original teeth surface for fitting purposes.It is not as obvious as the Flipper variety, and is much more durable due toits chrome cobalt construction. As the soft oral tissues are never contacted bythe dentures, there is no risk of soft spot irritation. Flexible FrameworkPartial Dentures are the most modern of these types of dentures. In place ofthe metal and the pink acrylic base a pink nylon-like material is utilized.This material does not break, and is utilized for clasp construction as well,lending them even more invisibility inside the mouth. They lean on the gums,like the metal ones. A Nesbit Partial Dentureis created to exchange one or several lost rear teeth, and can only be madefrom a flexible framework material variety. While a risk of swallowing thisdenture by accident is present, due to its flexibility it rarely causes damage.The teeth are fixed with metal clasps, and as there is no teeth support, this canlead to large amounts of pressure to the clasped teeth, making it an unpopularchoice. The Cusil Partial Denture is ahole-ridden full denture that gives the natural teeth that remain anopportunity to go through these holes. There is a rubber gasket lining that holds the teeth. This type isunsuitable for persons with teeth that are distributed evenly, but more recommendedto the opposite case.
