Removable replacements, or dental prostheses, are artificial replacements for natural teeth and gums. They perform the same function as fixed prosthetics (crowns, bridges) - they replace the lost or even all teeth in the jaw. For example, if only a few healthy teeth, or even none at all, remain in your mouth as a result of an accident, illness or bad dental care, the dentures will replace you without difficulty.
Removable dental replacements are recommended especially if it is no longer possible to replace the missing teeth with a fixed prosthesis. In most cases it is necessary to make a tooth model using a fingerprint of both jaws. Based on this model, new dental prostheses are made in the laboratory. These will then stick in the mouth to the remaining teeth or directly to the toothless jaw and fully restore your teeth. The advantage is that you can pull them out of your mouth at any time (for example, for the night or for cleaning) and deploy as needed.
Once dental prostheses have been used, care should be taken to ensure proper oral hygiene. Take a look at our advice on how to care for dental prostheses!
