Removable dental prosthesisPeople lose teeth at different ages and there are several reasons for that.

  • First of all, indifferent attitude towards your own health
  • Second, long-term illnesses that cause poor oral hygiene
  • Third, mental disorders, which can also lead to poor hygiene

Modern dentistry allows eliminating defects associated with the teeth: restore a beautiful smile and as a result gain confidence. All this is possible due to dental prosthetics. When a person is fully able to chew, smile, and communicate with friends, the quality of life increases. Unfortunately, dentistry can not change a person's lifestyle, as well as habits, to guarantee the long usage of both their own and artificial teeth. To get such a result, only the knowledge and skills of the doctor are not enough, the patient must cooperate with the doctor, too. Otherwise, the result will not last long.
