Metal framework dentures

Metal framework dentures

  • Such dentures can only be implemented in partially edentulous patients (they don’t apply to patients without any teeth left)
  • The remaining teeth, serving as the support base for the denture, must be solid – deeply rooted, without crown damage
  • Such denture is made of metal, which makes it endurable, while the base’s seating on the upper dental arch is minimized
  • The teeth are affixed into acryl which is connected to a metal framework. A gentle smile reveals the teeth only, or occasionally the pink acryl which imitates the gums
  • The denture is fixed in the mouth with clasps which, unlike the acrylic dentures, do not embrace the tooth all around, but are seated upon the intercuspation surface

Precision attachments

In framework dentures it is possible to use precision attachments such as:

  • balls
  • locks
  • studs
  • snap hooks
  • clasps etc.

which fit into the anatomy of patient’s remaining teeth like a key fits into a lock ( when the denture is put on, it snaps right into place, maintaining stable position). It is a good solution for patients who fear that the denture is going to fall out during everyday tasks, as well as for patients who care about high level of esthetics, eager to avoid hooks near the front teeth.

The most significant advantages of such denture are as follows:

  1. It doesn’t rest upon the gum and doesn’t exert pressure on the bone, therefore not promoting bone deterioration
  2. It holds great in the mouth thanks to the use of precision attachments
  3. The size of the base is limited, which makes it much easier to get used to
  4. It doesn’t damage the neighboring teeth
  5. High endurability – the base plate is made of metal

Reinforced Splint Denture

It is a kind of a framework denture, which is especially recommended for parodontosis-prone patients, as well as all patients tending to suffer from periodontium ailments that lead to the loosening of the teeth.
