We say that a dental prosthesis is removable because it can be removed for maintenance. The fact that it can be removed poses many inconveniences since it can fall during a discussion or during a meal. A dental prosthesis can replace all or part of the teeth.
The different removable dental prostheses
There are different types of removable dentures. Dental stellites replace a few teeth and which are held by hooks on teeth still in place and complete dentures which are commonly called dentures. There is also the so-called All on 4 system which is a complete dental prosthesis stabilized by dental implants.
