In general, there are two different types of dentures: fixed and removable. Fixed dentures, which are applied by gluing into the mouth, cannot be removed by the person's own will. Fixed dentures, which are mostly applied to people with little tooth loss, are produced using the person's own tooth. After the process, which starts by cutting and reducing the existing tooth, the existing tooth of the person is covered and then the prosthesis is mounted on it. These types of dentures are fixed to natural teeth or implants in the mouth and do not need to be removed. They can successfully treat tooth loss caused by one or more missing teeth. Dental crowns and dental bridges are commonly used fixed prostheses.
Removable dentures, which can be defined as an appliance that can replace missing teeth, can be inserted and removed by the patient himself. It is applied in cases where there are natural teeth but there is not enough support for fixed prosthesis. They are prosthetic teeth used in cases of partial or total edentulism, in patients where bridge and implant options are not preferred. During the application, support is taken from existing teeth and tissues. There are eight types of these prostheses; classical partial, precision connected, complete dentures, dentures, new generation dentures, immediate dentures, temporary dentures, and overdentures.
Removable dentures should be replaced every 5-7 years. Because these dentures are made according to the anatomy of the mouth, they are affected by the changes in the mouth during this period. In addition, the acrylic material used is affected by the temperature and pH of everything eaten and drunk, its hygiene deteriorates over time, and it starts to harbor bacteria.
