A removable solution always means a denture that can be used in case a patient has lost so many teeth and the bone situation doesn’t allow a fixed work or the patient prefers to have removable teeth due to one or more of the advantages as listed below.
A denture can be removed for cleaning. Even though one has to get used to wearing a denture, nowadays they have a very high aesthetic effect and look almost like natural teeth. A removable solution is a high-quality alternative in case a fixed dental work is not possible or desired.
We talk about a partial denture in case some teeth have to be replaced and we talk about a full denture if the prostheses is covering the full jaw. The still existing teeth remain and the prostheses always adjusts to the given situation.
Non removable dentures refer to fixed bridges. You can read about them more in the section permanent solutions.
Please be aware that a removable solution especially a full or partial denture in many cases has to be adjusted after the treatment as the gum changes anatomically after the treatment, for instance as the wound of extracted teeth heal.
What types are there and how much does a removable denture or removable bridge cost?
See below the most common removable denture types and all the removable denture and bridge costs:
This type of denture is made of composite, composite teeth are fixed onto a prostheses plate. The fixation is being done on the gum by adhesion crème.
A premium removable denture costs 690 €.
Also known as click prostheses. Two or four implants are being placed ensuring a strong hold for the prostheses and leaving the gum area free. Between implants and prostheses locators are being fixed. When placing the denture on the implants it mounts (clicks) at the right position.
A premium removable denture on 2 or 4 implants costs 1050-1450 €.
these type of prostheses is usually fixed on 4 implants and it has an additional metal bar ensuring additional hold and stability. The metal parts go along the back of the teeth so none of them is visible therefore a high aesthetic result can be achieved.
A bar-supported removable bridge costs 2890 €.
these solution is always used in order to connect existing teeth with a prostheses. Small, hidden clamps are anchored to the last existing tooth on both sides ensuring additional stability.
This type of removable denture is applied on telescopic crowns ensuring the primary stability. The telescopic crowns are applied on natural teeth in rare cases on implants. The telescopic crown always consists of two parts: the primary crown part is put on the teeth, the secondary crown part is within the denture. A denture is replacing all the teeth and is being stabilized through the telescopic crowns. The denture is many times galvanized, meaning that the inner part is alloyed with gold in order to slow down the amortization of the telescopic part caused by permanent insertion and takeout.
A telescopic denture costs 290 € per telescopic crown and 1290 € for the telescopic denture.
The advantages of a removable solution are the following:
