Dentures are removable appliance that replaces the missing teeth. It serves the aesthetic and functional requirements but carries the discomfort of removing every night. This is not a permanent solution as the dentures are generally made of Polymethlmethacrylate which is not biologically stable. So the dentures has to be periodically replaced to prevent any adverse effect of PMMA and to preserve the underlying bone.
Newer advancements like BioFunctional Prosthetic System uses denture base materials that are highly compatible with the sensitive oral mucosa. The materials are available in various shades to maintain gum aesthetics and the artificial teeth used in this system mimic the natural teeth. The recordings of the jaw are made with special devices called gnathometer and is transferred to the semi adjustable particular, the device that closely mimics the human jaw. The teeth are then arranged on this so that the replaced teeth are located and functions as close to the previously existing natural teeth.
