What Are Flexible Dentures?

Nowadays, missing teeth are often substituted with so-called dentures, which are as functional and aesthetical as natural teeth. Many patients of our dental clinic in Istanbul favour flexible dentures, which can easily be inserted and removed.

Flexible Dentures from Istanbul - The Options 

Depending on the state of your teeth, we use different flexible dentures in Istanbul.

Full Denture:

If there are no more natural teeth left, we use full dentures in Istanbul. These artificial teeth, which are composed of acrylic, are placed in your mouth with support of the upper and lower jaw. As a full denture consists of plastic, it can discolour over time.

Partial Dentures:

If there are only some teeth missing, we recommend a partial denture, which can be put in and out. We produce these flexible partial dentures in Istanbul and adhere them to your main teeth with the help of brackets and wires.

Overdenture:

We use these partial dentures in Istanbul, if the structure of your bones is not qualified for dental implants. Overdentures can be put on the few remaining natural teeth, dental roots or implants. In order to guarantee a proof attachment and to minimize a functional loss, the dental roots and their sensors remain in the mouth.

Flexible Dentures - After the Treatment in Turkey  

It's a proven fact that cleaning a denture with the help of your fingers and water only transfers the micro-organisms from your hands to the denture's surface. Thus you should remove your flexible denture after every meal and clean it inside and outside with a toothbrush and soap. If you cannot hold on to the slippery denture or are afraid that it might fall down, you should place it on a soft towel. This prevents the denture from breaking if it falls down.

Toothpaste causes the loss of the denture's protective coating. If the coating on the denture's surface is battered, it serves as a working point for micro-organisms and complicates the cleaning. In such a case you should contact your dentist and let him overhaul the denture.

Do not use bleacher, dishwashing detergents or washing powder to clean your flexible denture. These substances do not only damage your denture, but are also very health-damaging. To clean your denture, you can use specific tabs or cleaning solutions. The cleaning of the tissues, to which the denture is adhered, is very important. If you clean your denture and put it back into your unclean mouth, the cleaning is to no purpose. Therefore, you should also clean your gums and natural teeth with the help of a soft toothbrush or cloth.

In case of a partial denture, it is particularly important that the brackets, which are used as attachment to your natural teeth, are clean. If food debris cannot be removed from the brackets, it damages the teeth. Thus, the brackets should be cleaned after every meal. After removing the flexible denture, you should keep it in a bucket of water.

Without your dentist's approval you should never let somebody perform abrasions, attachments, repairs or similar actions to your flexible denture. In case of any problems, you should immediately contact your dentist. Dental check-ups on a regular basis also prevent possible problems. Please be aware that your denture only has a certain durability and that you should change it after two years at the earliest and after five years at the latest. Otherwise the denture would be damaged by the changing tissue or the usage would be aggravated.

Gingival Diseases and Its Treatment

There are various reasons for the occurrence of gingival diseases. If they are not treated properly, they can even cause tooth exfoliation. Some of our patients in Istanbul have lost teeth due to a gingival disease. An irregular and false cleaning can cause the development of plaque, tartar and gingival problems. The emerging acid surrounding damages both teeth and gingiva – in this case, tooth exfoliation is inevitable.

Symptoms of a Gingival Disease

Possible indications of a gingival disease are haemorrhage, discolouration, deformation and bad breath.

Periodontal Treatment with the Picasso Dental Laser in Istanbul 

In case of gingival problems, our dental clinic in Istanbul offers painless and effective treatments with the advanced picasso dental laser, which is the most effective, safest and fastest treatment unit among laser systems for soft tissue. In Istanbul we use the dental laser for the removal of tartar, impacted teeth, tumors, drainage and several other problems with the soft tissue.
