Dental prosthesis

If one has no teeth left, dentures are often made. Even if some teeth are missing, a partial denture or frame denture can be fabricated. A denture replaces the function of the teeth. Think chewing function, speech and aesthetics.

What is a dental prosthesis?

A dental prosthesis is an artificial replacement of missing teeth and surrounding tissue. It is designed to restore the function and appearance of natural teeth. Dentures are made of durable materials, such as resin and porcelain, that resemble natural teeth and gums.

Types of dentures

Complete dental prosthesis

A full denture is used when all the teeth in the upper and lower jaw are missing. It consists of a series of artificial teeth attached to a pink resin base, which in turn rests on the gums and jaw. A full denture provides a complete replacement of teeth.

Partial dental prosthesis

A partial denture is used when only a few teeth are missing. It consists of artificial teeth supported by a metal framework that attaches to the surrounding natural teeth. A partial denture provides a partial replacement of teeth and helps prevent shifting of the remaining teeth.


An overdenture, also known as a click denture, is a denture that is attached to implants placed in the jaw. This ensures a firm and stable attachment of the denture. An overdenture offers better functionality and comfort compared to traditional dentures.

Frame prosthesis

A frame denture is a partial denture attached to a metal frame that wraps around the natural teeth. This type of denture is thinner and lighter than full dentures, making it more comfortable to wear.

Advantages of wearing dentures

Restoring aesthetics

Dentures help restore a radiant smile, boosting people's self-confidence.

Improved speech

Missing teeth can affect speech. Dentures help improve pronunciation and intelligibility.

Eating simply

With dentures, people can enjoy a wide range of foods without restrictions.

Support of the facial structure

Dentures help maintain the natural shape of the face and prevent sagging of the jaw.

The process of getting dentures

Getting dentures involves several steps.


The dentist assesses oral health and discusses the best options for dentures.


Impressions of the jaw are taken to ensure an accurate fit of the prosthesis.

Emergency prosthesis

A temporary prosthesis is made to check the fit and aesthetics.

Definitive denture

After approval of the trial denture, the final denture is fabricated and adapted to the patient's mouth.

Daily care of dentures

To keep dentures in good condition, daily care is essential. Here are some important tips.

Cleaning of dentures

Rinse the denture with water after every meal and clean it daily with a soft toothbrush and special denture cleaning products.

Oral hygiene

Thoroughly brush and floss remaining natural teeth to prevent tooth decay and gum problems.

Visit to the dentist

Regular checks at the dentist are important to check oral health and make any adjustments to the prosthesis.
