Rhone Dental Clinic Article Dental Prosthesis Image01 4 Scaled

Dental prostheses are dental appliances used by people with missing teeth. These latters are attached to your natural teeth and allow you to eat, speak and smile normally.

Do I need a dental prosthesis?

Yes.  If you  lost your teeth and cannot afford the cost of dental implants. A denture is a set of replacement teeth.
What are dentures and how do we make them:

  • Rough and smooth,
  • Customizable,
  • In porcelain or composite resin.

A dental prosthesis can be a useful part for a dental care in purpose to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with tooth loss. Properly fitted, dentures allow you to eat normally and improve the function of your mouth. However, they may not look very natural, especially when compared to your real teeth, so dentures must be well made so that the person gets used to them over time. Thanks to regular care and maintenance of your new dentures, they can last for years.

Types of dental prostheses

There are 2 types of dental prostheses:

  1. Dental implants
  2. Dentures

Both are designed to provide a solution for people with missing teeth. It is important to highlight that dentures can be fitted by a dental professional at your Rhône Dental Clinic.

All dentures are customizable at Rhône Dental Clinic at Geneva to fit your mouth. If a denture is used in place of a dental bridge, it is usually called a retainer. In most cases, the denture fits tightly around the teeth, with little room for movement. However, sometimes the patient needs more room around the teeth because of tongue issue or missing teeth. A denture may need to be made specifically for these reasons.
