A prosthesis or denture replaces the natural teeth when they have gone through caries or periodontitis trauma lost. In dental technology, we distinguish between complete dentures and partial dentures as dentures and denture plate. It is estimated that about three million people have dentures in the Netherlands.
A prosthesis is made of a synthetic resin base on which tines are fitted. The synthetic resin and the teeth are adapted as natural as possible to the mouth. The shapes and colors of the teeth in the natural teeth in the denture can be recreated exactly. This allows the dentures are so natural looking that no one notices.
