In our clinic there are all main dentures of a removable type:
Each of them differs in manufacturing material, mounting, cost and other characteristics.
Acrylic dentures are most affordable for the time being. They can be manufactured in the complete absence of teeth or only in the part of missing teeth. The doctor gets the impression of the jaw or alveolar bone (when fully edentulous), according to which the dental technician makes a preliminary model of prostheses, followed by adjustment of the process, and if the prosthesis does not bring any discomfort to the patient, the specialists produce the final version made of special and modern acrylic mass.

These modern prostheses are almost imperceptible in the mouth. Their basis is a thin metal arc with artificial crowns made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. The construction is attached to the supporting teeth with help of special clasps (metal hooks) or microlocks (they are completely invisible and they relieve pressure from the abutment teeth).
