In case you still have some natural and healthy teeth, there is always the possibility to form aesthetic artificial dentures in order to complete your smile.
Usually the remaining teeth will be crowned and missing teeth are replaced by removable partial prosthesis.
The removable denture itself is attached to the remaining anchor teeth by using a variety of connection technologies. It is however sometimes recommended to use telescopic (German) crowns instead.
If the remaining natural teeth are no longer suitable to perform anchor points for the partial dentures, then great results can be achieved by using implantology.
The picture of a grandma who cannot properly speak because of a wacky Prosthesis has been dusted. Modern dental technology is totally capable of producing fully fitted and a rock solid prostheses which are very hard to distinguish from natural teeth.
Generally the prosthesis base is made from gum colored plastic fitted with industry made plastic teeth.
A full prosthesis is placed straight onto the mucous of the jaw so that chewing pressure is directly transferred. It is held by the negative pressure and capillary strength between prosthesis and mucous together with stability caused by muscles, tongue, lips, cheeks and bite.
In order to produce a perfectly fitted prosthesis it is essential to take an accurate negative of your dentures and bite movement.
