Partial Partial Dentures:
They use hooks as anchorage and removable inserts should be adjusted annually by means of “Overflows” due to the constant loss of the bone of the jaws. We must remember that when you eat, you are applying a vertical force to the bone; This force compresses the upper jaw upwards and if it is in the lower jaw the force will be oriented downwards. This causes him to lose the bone of his jaws accelerated producing a premature oldness in his face. Many people with dentures can not eat well because they move causing pain or injury to the gums and teeth. Others complain of bad breath due to the accumulation of food under them, while others are aware that the aesthetic value of their smile and face is affected by this type of replacement.
They are prostheses that replace all the lost teeth. They use the volume of the bone of the jaws as retention. Like the partial dentadureas, they do nothing to prevent the loss of bone from their jaws. Many times due to the lack of osseous vlumen, these produce lesions at the level of the gums which are very uncomfortable for the patient when chewing their food. In extreme cases many people prefer to remove their dentures to eat their food; Due to this cause, they must eat a restricted diet eliminating in this way the possibility of eating their favorite foods.
When a person loses all his teeth he also loses the support where the lips and cheeks rest, and as a consequence, his cheeks sink, and there is a decrease in the closing angle of the mouth; In addition, his speech ability is impaired, making the older person see what he is. In the times of our grandparents, removing all the teeth to use dentures was a quick and less expensive solution and they thought it was best to stop going to the dentist. But it is not the solution, but the beginning of other problems.
They replace the root and crown of their lost teeth. They provide a constant stimulus to the bone of your jaws when you chew your food. They are constructed of a biocompatible material called Titanium; therefore the chances of rejection are minimal. For your placement it is necessary that you have good health and enough bone. It is not necessary to reduce or abrade neighboring teeth, thus preserving the integrity of health of your natural teeth.
