Thanks to modern dental prosthetics, we can fully replace a missing tooth or even entire teeth. You must have heard of dental crowns, dental bridges or removable dentures. These prosthetic solutions are not only functional but also aesthetic. If you think that dentures could help you, consult with a dentist who can recommend the most appropriate way to solve your problem.
Types of dentures
Dentures are divided into fixed and removable dentures. From the name alone, you can certainly tell the difference.
Fixed dentures are firmly attached to healthy teeth and cannot be removed. This group includes:
Dental crowns – are fixed dentures that are firmly attached to the tooth tissue. They are used in cases where the decay on a tooth is too great and an ordinary filling will not hold in the tooth. At the same time, there is a high chance that the remaining part of the tooth may crack. In this case, it is recommended to grind the tooth and place a crown on it. This will ensure its longevity.
Dental veneers – These are prosthetic restorations that look like a semi-crown and are attached to the front surface of the teeth to improve the overall appearance of the patient’s smile.
Dental bridges – are fixed dentures that replace three or more missing teeth. The teeth are ground down on either side of the gap and used as abutments for the bridge. This effectively replaces the missing teeth once fitted.
If you are interested in removable dentures, then removable dentures are the most suitable solution for you. The advantage is that you can remove it again. However, it usually does not reach the quality level of fixed dentures in terms of both functionality and aesthetics, which is its disadvantage. Removable restorations are divided into:
Complete dentures – they are placed in the mouth in cases where the patient has lost all of his or her teeth.
Partial dentures – are fixed on the remaining teeth that the patient has left. They replace the teeth that have been lost.

Is removable dentures or fixed dentures better?
Deciding which type of denture is right for you depends on a number of factors, so it is impossible to say which solution is better. Each denture has its own use. The choice of denture and its application also depends on the condition of the patient’s teeth. Not everyone qualifies for a dental bridge or fixed denture. Therefore, the first step is a consultation with a specialist at our clinic.
