Varieties of removable dentures

These products are made of acrylic plastic by injection molding, cold and hot compressional polymerization.

The clasps are metal hooks by which the product is attached to the teeth, and attachmen almost stationary rigid construction.

Nylon dentures are used to restore one or two or more teeth. Removable segments or sectors constitute a unilateral prostheses, which are used in the loss of a number of posterior teeth.

As for conditionally removable (opaque) prostheses, they are usually installed in the absence of only one tooth chewing. The support elements of the prosthesis can be adhered to the tooth with a special compound or fastened with a plastic/metal clasps. This design looks similar to a removable denture, but its removal is not necessary.
