Total-full denture treatment should be performed in case of loss of all teeth.
Total dental prosthesis, also referred to as full denture, is a form of treatment applied to patients who have lost all their teeth. In case of unpleasant appearance caused by gum disease or widespread tooth decay, decayed teeth are extracted and replaced with total prosthesis to restore the chewing/biting and speech function. It is highly important to replace the missing teeth for body health, chewing and speech function.
The teeth/jaw examination is performed by the dentist in order to figure out whether it can support the prosthesis. It is decided how to optimize the appearance. The extent to which the anterior teeth will appear is determined according to the face and mouth structure and the expectations of the patient.
What are the advantages?
When the full dentures are performed properly, eating and speaking functions will feel quite comfortable. Total prosthesis prevents wrinkles around the mouth and prevents cheek sagging. Even though it takes time to get used to the full denture, it has a positive effect on life as a dental treatment that restores the smile and improves the eating and speaking functions.
