Unfortunately, with age, the human body undergoes physiological changes. This also applies to teeth. With a lack of calcium, diseases of the teeth and gums develop. If you do not take timely measures for treatment, you can lose your teeth, and in this case you can’t do without prostheses. To date, dental prosthetics is one of the most sought-after and virtually painless dental services. You will learn about what dentures are, what is better, patient reviews and much more, in this article.
What are the types of dental prosthetic structures?
Dental prosthetic constructions are conventionally divided into three broad categories:
Fixed prosthetic structures are partially installed to restore the damaged dentition. Most often, such prostheses are used if there are no more than two teeth in a row.
Removable dentures are installed in case of complete absence of teeth. They are attached to the gums by special anatomical plates that take the shape of the jaw.
The installation of implants is performed to restore one tooth. In this case, a special base is implanted into the gum, or rather, into the bone tissue layer, a pin, onto which the prosthesis is being built. In its shape and color, it is no different from the rest of the teeth.
In dental practice, there are varieties of fixed prosthetic structures, depending on the material of manufacture. In particular, non-removable dentures are of the following types:
Dentures: which are better according to reviews and prices?
Many patients who have to undergo the procedure of implantation of teeth, ask the question: "How to choose removable dentures, and which ones are better?". Reviews of patients who have undergone a similar procedure will help to clarify all your questions.
The decision about which is better to choose dentures, the patient takes personally. Testimonials of people say that it is necessary to consult with a highly qualified dentist who, based on your physiological characteristics, will help you make your choice.
According to reviews of patients who have undergone a prosthetic procedure, it is possible to identify the main advantages and disadvantages of each type of prosthesis. Let's look at the reviews of people who chose removable prosthetic designs.
Many of them believe that the main advantage of such prostheses is the possibility of their extraction from the oral cavity at any time. This is very convenient, especially for older people. If you carefully review the reviews, you can see that the majority of patients choosing removable dentures belong to the age category over 60 years.
Also, patients who have left reviews in various forums, express their opinion in favor of plastic removable designs. But many people refuse from nylon prostheses, because it is very difficult to get used to them and often there are problems with gums. It all depends on the individual tolerance of materials and bite.
Patient reviews can tell you about the main disadvantages of removable prosthetic structures. As you know, they are mounted in the oral cavity with the help of special devices that take the anatomical shape of the palate. When wearing removable dentures for a long time, the palate begins to deform, and, as a result, the denture is loose. This gives a number of inconveniences: the structure is poorly fixed, can shift, cause pain.
Also, patients who have chosen a removable design, leave feedback that over time under the prosthesis can get food, or rather, its remnants, and this causes the appearance of bad breath and discomfort.
As for fixed structures, according to reviews of patients can install them at any age. Non-removable may be one or more prostheses. Their main advantage is reliable fixation due to the implantation of the pin in the bone tissue. People who have undergone the procedure of prosthetics of fixed structures, leave only positive feedback.
Fixed prostheses are made from a special material and do not differ in appearance from natural teeth. Their only drawback, according to patients, is the need to periodically increase the erased edges of the tooth.
Most patients leave feedback that they would prefer to install a fixed prosthesis, but this is not possible due to the absence of several teeth in a row. Indeed, fixed dental prosthetic structures can be installed only in the absence of one or a pair of teeth in a row. If there are no several teeth in the oral cavity, then patients are offered to install partial dentures on a laminar basis.
Many people say that such methods of prosthetics are quite affordable for most people.
Fixed prostheses should be selected solely on the advice of the attending dentist. Many people leave feedback about the fact that they installed and individual crowns, and bridges, prizhivili pins and made dental tabs.

What dentures are better and cheaper: reviews
As you have noticed, a large number of different prosthetic structures are used in dental practice. In each case, the dentist approaches the choice of dentures individually. It all depends on the condition of the patient’s natural teeth and their quantity.
Cheap dentures include plastic prostheses that are attached to the palate. The prosthesis takes the anatomical shape of the jaw and almost does not cause discomfort. However, patient reviews state that shredded food may fall under such prostheses, therefore, to fix them, you must additionally use special creams and gels.
Slightly higher price category for dentures that have special attachments (beams or buttons). Such prostheses will last from 5 to 10 years, but they are installed only in the complete absence of natural teeth in the oral cavity.
Inexpensive fixed prostheses are considered engrafted designs on pins. Slightly more expensive veneers made of ceramic materials. Patients leave comments that it is best to choose fixed prosthetic structures that will reliably protect the destroyed tooth or its abraded surface. If you want a fixed denture to last longer, then prefer ceramic veneers.
As soon as your teeth get sore or gums bleed, you need to take action in a timely manner. Otherwise, you risk losing your natural teeth. Currently, the range of dental services is quite wide. When choosing a prosthetic design, listen to the advice of the dentist. The main thing is that the installed prosthesis does not cause you discomfort. Remember, a smile is an important component element of your image. It should be healthy and radiant.
