In case of complete loss of teeth, however, only a prosthesis supported with the mucous membrane can be made because “the factors” (the teeth) which played an important role in anchoring and supporting are not there for fixation anymore.
This has of course a great effect on the stability of the dentures and also on their ability to fulfil their function. Therefore, they also influence the chewing abilities and the life quality of the patient. When the jaw-bone spine is held properly, there is a good chance to prepare a complete prosthesis with good functional stability. Partial and complete removable dentures also exist.
