Full dentures

Complete dental prosthesis used in cases where the patient has left their teeth. In most cases, give the prosthesis after 8-12 weeks after extraction of teeth, when the gums have healed sufficiently.

Sometimes, dentures are made in advance and set them immediately after tooth extraction. The obvious advantage of this prosthesis is that the patient is not necessary for a fairly long period of time to go without teeth. However, the gums and bone eventually shrink, particularly during the recovery period which follows after the teeth have been removed. So the patient has to adjust the prosthesis several times in the course of recovery.

And most of all the calcium found in tooth enamel The enamel of the teeth: protection, this Nature  The enamel of the teeth: protection, this Nature
 So it becomes thinner during gestation and becomes more susceptible to breakage.

As you know, in the oral cavity is always present pathogenic microflora, which is particularly active at lower immunity. During pregnancy there is a physiological depression of immunity under the influence of hormones. This contributes to inflammatory diseases of the gums and periodontal tissues, which teeth loosen.

In addition, bacteria accumulate on the enamel surface, forming together with the remnants of food soft plaque. This plaque bacteria multiply particularly active, and their enzymes eat away at the enamel - this is tooth decay. Surface decay causes pain only at the reception of sour or sweet, with a recess cavity in dentin (it too hard tissue, it is under the enamel) appears the pain of cold and hot food. If the hard tissue has collapsed completely and opened with sensitive tooth cavity with a soft cloth (pulp), the toothache becomes very strong and constant.

Caries - a constant source of infection, which is very dangerous for pregnant women, because the blood vessels infection can get into any body and complicate pregnancy. That's why obstetricians recommend that pregnant women be treated teeth as early as possible - in the initial stages of tooth decay.
