Part A: Removable Partial Dentures
Replaces one or more teeth in one arch
Retained and supported by underlying tissues and remaining teeth
Study models Photographs Visual aids Radiographs Treatment plan Consultation appointment
Advantages of a Removable Partial Less expensive than fixed prostheses Proper occlusal plane is maintained Fewer intraoral procedures than fixed pros. May support periodontally involved teeth Stabilizes the arches Restores function when no distal teeth present Restores long span of lost dentition Easier for good oral hygiene of abutments Easily repaired and adjusted
Contraindications for a Partial Lack of sufficient number of natural teeth properly located in the arch Lack of teeth with adequate root support to retain the appliance Rampant caries or gross periodontal conditions of remaining teeth Poor oral hygiene with no motivation to improve oral conditions
Components of a Partial Denture
Appointments for a Partial Denture Exam Consultation Final impressions Try-in and adjustment Delivery Adjustments Partial Denture
Part B: Removable Complete Denture
Denture supported by alveolar bone and oral mucosa
Indications for a Complete Denture Lack of financial resources for alternative treatments Patient refused partial dentures Edentulous patient Gross decay or abscesses Lack of motivation or ability to maintain teeth Extensive bone loss and periodontal disease
Components of a Complete Denture Complete denture Non-anatomical teeth Anatomical teeth Flange Saddle Denture base
Appointments for a Complete Denture Examination Consultation Oral surgery Final impressions Jaw relationship Denture delivery First follow-up Adjustments
Construction of Complete Dentures
Represents denture base
Simulates space provided by height of teeth
Jaw Relationship Set-up
Baseplates and bite rims
Denture teeth mounted in wax
Extractions and alveoplasty
Insertion and removal
Denture Relines, Adjustments, and Repairs
Implants and Overdentures Advantages Disadvantages
What does the bite rim simulate?
Vertical dimension, or the height of the teeth.
What is the term for not having any teeth?
What happens to the bone following tooth extractions?
The bone will shrink and resorb.
