Removable Prothesis treatment in Izmir, Turkey

Bar-retained tooth or implant-supported removable prostheses are a common type of prosthetic treatment option.

Compared to other attachment types, a bar attachment provides greater stability.

It's suitable when there's enough vertical space and patients can maintain good oral hygiene.

Bars allow movement of the prosthesis to distribute forces away from the retaining abutments, protecting weak implants or roots.

All types of attachment prostheses offer advantages over traditional removable dentures, including increased stability, improved chewing ability, and enhanced speech. However, they may require extra preparation and planning for optimal fit and function.

Disadvantages of Removable Acrylic Overdentures

While Removable Acrylic Overdentures offer numerous advantages, it's essential to consider potential drawbacks:

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial to preserve the health of the implants and prevent infection. Patients must adhere to a rigorous oral hygiene regimen, including daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.

1. Maintenance Requirements:

Some patients may experience discomfort or soreness during the adjustment period or if the denture doesn't fit correctly.

2. Discomfort:

Removable acrylic overdentures may have a reduced chewing ability compared to natural teeth, impacting the patient's ability to eat certain foods.

3. ​Limited Chewing Ability:

Removable acrylic overdentures can be more expensive than traditional dentures due to the cost of dental implants and the need for additional dental visits.

4. Cost:

Speech difficulties may arise, particularly during the adjustment period, as the denture may affect tongue and lip movements.

While removable acrylic overdentures offer numerous benefits, patients should carefully weigh these potential drawbacks before deciding on this treatment option.

5. Speech Challanges:

What Is the Process of Getting Removable Acrylic Overdentures Step by Step?

Removable acrylic overdentures are a type of denture supported by dental implants. Here is the step-by-step process of obtaining removable acrylic overdentures:

1.     Consultation:

The initial step involves consulting with a dentist to discuss your dental needs and determine if removable acrylic overdentures are the best option for you. Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth and may take X-rays to assess the number and location of implants needed.

2.     Implant Placement:

During this stage, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. The number and location of implants are determined based on your specific needs. These implants are left to heal for several months to ensure proper integration with the bone.

3.     Impression:

After the implants have fully healed, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth. This impression serves as a mold for creating a custom-fit removable acrylic overdenture that will securely fit over the implants.

4.     Temporary Denture:

A temporary denture may be provided while the final removable acrylic overdenture is being created. While the final removable acrylic overdenture is being crafted, your dentist may provide a temporary denture to ensure functionality and aesthetics.

5.     Overdenture Fitting:

Once the removable acrylic overdenture is ready, it is fitted over the implants. The denture is anchored securely by attachments fixed onto the implants, providing a stable foundation.

6.    Follow-up Appointments:

After fitting the removable acrylic overdenture, your dentist will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure proper fit and your comfort with the denture.

7.     Maintenance:

Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are crucial for the longevity of the removable acrylic overdenture. Your dentist may recommend periodic adjustments or replacement of attachments to maintain fit and stability.


Overall, the process of obtaining a removable acrylic overdenture involves meticulous planning and collaboration between you and the dental team to achieve the best outcome.

Am I a Candidate for Removable Acrylic Overdentures?

Determining if you are a candidate for removable acrylic overdentures depends on several factors, which can be evaluated by a dentist or prosthodontist. Here are some of the key considerations:
 

Candidates for removable acrylic overdentures should have good oral health, with any existing dental issues such as decay or gum disease addressed before starting treatment.

1.     Oral Health:

Acrylic overdentures rely on remaining teeth or dental implants to serve as anchors for the prosthesis. The dentist will evaluate the condition and number of remaining teeth or assess the suitability of placing dental implants to determine candidacy for this type of prosthesis.

2.     Remaining Teeth or Implants:

The health and quality of the jawbone are crucial to support dental implants, if required. An evaluation will be conducted to ensure that the jawbone is adequate for supporting implants.

3.     Jawbone Health:

Candidates for removable acrylic overdentures should be willing to commit to daily maintenance, including regular cleaning and care, to ensure the longevity of the prosthesis and prevent oral health issues.

4.     Commitment to Care:

Personal preferences and lifestyle factors may also play a role in determining suitability for removable acrylic overdentures.

Overall, if you have lost most or all of your natural teeth and have remaining teeth or dental implants, and are dedicated to proper care, you may be a suitable candidate for removable acrylic overdentures. It is advisable to consult with a dentist or prosthodontist to evaluate your specific situation and determine the most appropriate treatment option for you.

Types of Removable Prosthesis:

Total prosthesis, applied in completely toothless mouths, relies on support solely from intraoral soft tissues. Patients often need to supplement these prostheses with adhesive. They can be uncomfortable, especially during eating and speaking. To improve this, removable prostheses that can attach to teeth and/or implants are employed.

 

Removable acrylic overdentures are crafted to snugly fit over a limited number of remaining natural teeth or dental implants. They are typically recommended for individuals who have lost the majority or all of their natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.

Acrylic overdentures are designed to be removed and cleaned on a daily basis, similar to traditional dentures. However, they offer numerous advantages over their traditional counterparts, such as heightened stability and retention, improved chewing capability, and enhanced speech clarity.

In summary, removable acrylic overdentures are a favoured choice among patients seeking a secure and stable denture solution that can be effortlessly removed for routine cleaning and upkeep.

The connection of these prostheses, which we can describe as semi-fixed yet removable, to teeth or implants can be made in several different types.

1. Total Prosthesis

Locator Attachment Prosthesis

Locator attachment prostheses, also called locator overdentures, utilize male and female attachments to secure the denture. The male attachment fixes to implants, while the female counterpart connects to the denture underside, creating a secure snap-fit connection. This system is popular for implant-supported dentures.

Removable acrylic overdentures present several advantages over traditional dentures. Here are some key benefits:

Advantages of Removable Acrylic Overdentures

1.     Enhanced Stability and Retention:

Acrylic overdentures, being anchored to natural teeth or dental implants, offer superior stability and retention compared to traditional dentures, which rely solely on suction. This enhanced stability facilitates improved speech, eating, and chewing.

In the second step, the dental implants are placed into your jawbone. The number and location of implants depend on your specific needs. The implants are allowed to heal for several months to allow for proper integration with the bone.

2.     Improved Chewing Ability:

Acrylic overdentures contribute to improved speech by mitigating the slipping and clicking noises often associated with traditional dentures.

3.     Speech Improvement:

Custom-fit to the patient's mouth and secured to remaining teeth or implants, acrylic overdentures provide a more comfortable and secure fit than traditional dentures.

4.     Comfortable Fit:

Dental implants utilized to anchor acrylic overdentures can help diminish bone loss in the jaw by stimulating underlying bone tissue.
 

Overall, acrylic overdentures offer a significant enhancement in the quality of life for patients who have lost most or all of their natural teeth, providing improved stability, comfort, and functionality compared to traditional dentures.

5.     Reduced Bone Loss:
Precision Attachment Prosthesis

Precision attachment prostheses, also known as precision partial dentures, use precision attachments to stabilize the prosthesis. These small, interlocking components attach to the denture and natural teeth on either side of the gap. They are suitable when traditional partial dentures may not be viable due to few remaining teeth or weak tooth support.
