Bio functional Prosthetic System:
There is a famous saying that says, “The Best and cheapest dentistry is when the right thing is done perfectly well the first time and it lasts for a long time”.
BPS dentures is one such right thing in dentistry that retains the smile of the people.
What is BPS?
BPS is designed as a replica of human dentures which are made up of high-quality materials to work in harmonious way with the human body as the natural dentures do.
These are removable dentures.
BPS is made up of unique Ivo clear teeth that satisfies the beauty concerns of the patients.
This system uses controlled pressure/heat polymerization procedure so that the exact amount of materials flow into the flask which compensates the shrinkage and ensures perfect fit.
The pressure exerted during the manufacture optimizes the physical properties of the material.
Ivo clear tooth is made up of three layers of cross-linked acrylic resins which gives the feel of life in appearance and gives resistance to the dentures after wearing.
BPS Dentures overview:
There are several types of Dentures and BPS system can be used as an option for all dentures.
Types of Dentures:
These are full or partial dentures that are implanted immediately after the natural teeth are removed.
These are implanted as a temporary solution to fill in the gaps of the extracted tooth.
For some patients the dentures are fixed after 6 to 7 days post extraction.
In the third case, Dentures are implanted in some patients after 6 months of tooth extraction, this delay allows the gums to heal and stop shrinking.
The third option is taken in very rare cases.
Implant Retained Dentures:
These are permanently placed dentures. The treatments are proven clinically successful for replacing the lost teeth.
These dentures are very comfortable and give long life as a substitute to the extracted tooth and brings back beautiful smile on the patient’s face.
The look and feel exactly matches with the natural teeth in the mouth.
Dr. Abe Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Dentures (SEMCD):
Dr. Abe from Tokyo Dental College is a well-known name in Dental community. He developed Mandibular Suction Denture in 1999.
These dentures are useful to patients who suffer from full lower dentures.
This denture is achieved with the combination of BPS system and suction
A full Denture replaces the whole set of natural teeth (both upper and lower teeth arc).
It is made up of acrylic base and composite set of denture teeth. For extra strength a metal plate is inserted into the artificial dental set.
After inserting full Dentures patients can live normally without any change in their lifestyle.
These dentures are designed as required by the patients. They are removable and temporarily placed.
They fill the gaps of extracted tooth and helps the surrounding tooth to strengthen and maintain the shape.
Patients who put on dentures can eat, speak and smile normally.
Making of Dentures:
- Step 1:
Once the patient visits the hospital for dentures, doctor takes the impression of his teeth structure using a plaster model.
- Step 2:
This plaster model is kept into an articulator (a device which replicates the patient’s jaw), which helps the doctor attach the teeth chosen with wax.
- Step 3:
The doctor shapes and carves the replica of gums on the wax. With this step the process of creating dentures will be almost finished.
These designed dentures are fitted in a device called flask; more plastic is poured to maintain the shape of the dentures.
After a while the flask is kept in boiling water to melt the wax away.
- Step 4:
The left-over wax is washed away and cleared off by injecting Acrylic.
A liquid separator is painted on to the plastic to avoid the sticking of Acrylic.
- Step 5:
The technicians break off the plastic mold using some lab tools.
To confirm all the plastic is removed, dentures are placed for ultrasonic bath.
The technicians make sure all the plastic is removed by trimming and then polish the dentures with pumice.
Dentures are ready to be placed in the concerned patient’s mouth to bring back his/her smile.
