Replacing your natural teeth, complete or partial dentures remains the solution for you in order to maintain your quality of life, your health and self-esteem. From a functional and esthetics point of view, be aware that there are a whole range of prosthesis designed to provide you with stability, comfort and desired smile.

Reserved for those who have no more teeth, complete prosthesis , also called dentures, are manufactured to different standards adjustments ( semi-balance, balanced and biofunctional ) , which allows to customize a plan of treatment based on esthetics and your functional expectations.

THE SEMI-BALANCE PROSTHESIS

Also known as precision or standard prosthesis, this type of prosthesis as a limitation at the level of its chewing movements, because during the confection, the recordings of rotation of the mandible are not reproduced. It offers only one movement, opening / closing of the mouth, not reproducing the lateral movements. This dental prosthesis is not recommended for cases of advanced bone resorption, these may however meet esthetics and stability requirements according to the condition of the gums.

BALANCED PROSTHESIS OR PRECISION

In appearance, the balanced denture is no different than the standard or semi-precision prosthesis. The teeth are the same, as well as the pink acrylic which compose the base of the prosthesis. Yet, balanced prosthesis, allows the patient to accurately do protrusion movements (movement of the chin forward) and lateral (movement of the chin to the left or to the right) without any interference between the teeth. With a natural and incomparable esthetics, balanced prosthesis is manufactured according to the same standards as implants retained prosthesis. With accurate physiological measurements, it allows the occlusal balance of its base on the gums , which provides maximum comfort and a harmonious functioning of the joints (articulations) during mastication .

THE BIOFUNCTIONAL PROSTHESIS

This type of prosthesis is similar to the precision prosthesis, but requires mounting teeth on a three-dimensional table. It respects the natural angulation of the mandibular joint and this type of prosthesis is recommended for people who have little or no gum. Designed for those who suffer from instability and discomfort problems, but who do not want a soft base, the biofunctional prosthesis remains the best treatment if implant placement is not considered.
