The loss of one or more teeth changes facial appearance, leading to atrophy of tissue sand bones. To avoid this, the coating dentures are used. With their help, the tooth row is restored, returning the person an attractive smile.

This is a removable design (photos will be shown below), which consists of several elements:
The best option that provides secure fastening is the presence of three or more locks. In this case, the patient takes food safely, without worrying about installation strength.
The coating prosthesis is called so due to the fact that it is installed on top of the damaged teeth or implants. Depending on the method of fixing the following types of the construction are distinguished:
We offer you to see photos of dentures on the lower jaw here. Learn their design features and advantages.
Today, the most commonly used dental prosthesis is based on BPS technology. Its use gives the reliability of the design and increases the life of the product. The special features of artificial elements of this material include:
Dentists recommend installing design with the following problems:
The works take place in several stages:
The coating prosthesis is installed in cases where there are single roots. They are used as the supportive element. At edentulous, the structure is attached to the implants.
Combined prosthesis is impossible. Simultaneous attachment to the remains of teeth and implants significantly reduces mobile function.
What fastening method is the best to choose? Experts agree that it is better to set the coating on prosthetic implants. They are more durable and provide reliable fixation in contrast to attachments on the teeth. The design provides a constant load, so the real roots begin to fail over time.
Sometimes, there arise some difficulties at the stage of the preparation of the oral cavity. The following procedures are performed to exclude them:
Depending on the degree of atrophy of the bone tissue installation features can vary:
First of all, the coating dentures do not have a strong effect on the mucous membrane. It also helps to prevent degenerative processes occurring in the maxillofacial part. It is provided thanks to the slight pressure on the remaining teeth.
As additional details, it is possible to use various elements which increase the strength of the installation and facilitate its application.
Advantages of using this design include:
Furthermore, they can be used as an adaptation prosthesis prior to installing a permanent construction.
In most cases, these systems are suitable for patients who have a tendency to gag reflex. For their use, it is not necessary to perform a bone augmentation procedure.
Among the disadvantages, there is a high price and complicated care in the case of fixing the prosthesis to the remains of teeth.
After the installation of artificial elements, an oral health care can be divided into two groups. One includes a number of recommendations for preventive dental care. In this case, everything depends on doctor’s actions.
The second include actions to be taken by the patient on a daily basis. It depends on the individual care how long the system will last.
The dentist will give recommendations to the patient, based on consulting the clinic for relining. This procedure is necessary for a tighter adherence of the prosthesis to the gums.
All the problems with the wearing of the system also need to be addressed to the doctor. The design allows to make denture repairs, for example, when the matrix is worn out, it is removed and replaced with a new one.
Every year, you need to visit the dentist for preventive measures, which include the relocation of the system.
Any removable design is prone to contamination. To take full care, it is necessary to perform the following steps:
For cleaning dentures, it is recommended to use special tools. This can be a brush in the form of their interdental brush with removable nozzles and irrigators. The last with the help of a trickle of water performs an excellent job of washing hard to reach places.
To eliminate bad breath, it is recommended to replace the usual toothpaste to special means – gels, pills or powders for to take care about dentures.
There are some diseases in which it is not recommended to set this type of prosthesis:
It is rather difficult to calculate the final price of the coating denture using a system where the patient’s teeth are used as the basis. It is an individual process, as the state and other subtleties are taken into account.
So how much do the coating dentures exactly cost? When using implants, the price is formed based on the materials used and the payment for dental services. The scope of work also forms the final price of the prosthesis.
For example, the acrylic will cost 630$, and the installation of the implant is 950$.
The minimum cost of one design is 1650$.
The use of additional elements determines the final price. For example, a beam system would cost more than others and will be about 3375-3900$, implant cost comes to 5300$. The simplest installation is considered to be spherical, which is from 1400 to 2000$.
