Types of Dentures Abroad

Dentures are broadly classified in two types,

  • Complete Dentures: Patient chooses complete denture when there is no teeth left in their mouth (edentulous patients).
  • Partial Dentures: This type of denture is handy when there are still some teeth left in the mouth. Moreover, the patient opts to keep the teeth as such.

1. Complete Dentures

Sometimes, especially in old-aged patients, all the teeth fall out (Edentulous patients). In that case, it becomes mandatory to have a complete set of dentures (both upper and lower).

Complete dentures are of three types

a. Fixed Complete Dentures
b. Complete Removable Dentures
c. Snap-On Dentures

The type depends on the budget, aesthetic requirement and the jaw-bone structure of the patient.

Nearly 37.9 million adults will need one or two complete dentures by 2020 in the world.[2]Gerodontology.

There are two types of partial dentures, namely,

a. Fixed Dental Bridge

A fixed partial denture or a dental bridge is a restorative set of artificial teeth that are used to replace one or more missing teeth.

The bridge is used where the patient has a healthy bone structure on both sides of the gap. It has 2 parts

  1. Pontic: Tooth-like structure that replaces the missing teeth
  2. Crown: A cap that covers adjacent teeth
  3. Abutment: The neighbouring teeth that are reduced in size to support crown

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Maintains natural shape of the face
  • Reduces stress on adjacent teeth
  • Prevents mal-alignment of neighbouring teeth
  • Promotes natural-looking smile
  • Prevents teeth on the opposite arch from over-errupting

b. Removable Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture (RPD) is made of artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. This base is connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place.

As the remaining teeth help in holding the denture in place, they have better stability.

Material used for RPD

There are different types of RPDs depending on the material used, they are:

  • Cast metal RPD- Made of metal framework with retainers and teeth.
  • Acrylic RPD-  Temporary framework with wire clasps.
  • Valplast RPD- Made of flexible plastic with valplast gum-colored clasps.
