Dentures are needed to restore missing teeth and their rows and to restore the bite. The person can speak again without disorders, eat, chew and smile without fear, and self-confidence increases.

Problems faced by people who have lost their teeth:

  • Changes in facial shape

People without front teeth try to hide their smile. They can no longer live a full social life. The loss of a group of lateral teeth also affects the facial configuration. An atrophied lower jaw causes the chin to protrude forward and the cheeks to hollow out, while atrophy (loss) of the upper jaw causes the tip of the nose to droop down and the cheeks to hollow out. Without teeth, the lips fall in, lip and chin wrinkles deepen and the corners of the lips droop. It ages a person.

  • Language impairment

The most severe speech impairment is caused by the loss of front teeth. There is a rustling sound, and sometimes a whistling sound when you say some sounds. The pronunciation of sounds can also be affected by the loss of the lateral teeth, which also influence the sound production (creating space for air to pass).

  • Impaired chewing function

Toothless people try to rub food with their gums and tongue. When the teeth are gone, saliva production also decreases. The pleasure of eating is lost and the senses of taste are reduced.

  • Disruption of the digestive system

Tooth loss leads to varying degrees of digestive disorders, as the digestion of food affects stomach function and metabolism.

Initial medical consultation and detailed treatment plan

At the start, an initial examination and a panoramic dental X-ray (taken at least 1 year ago) are required.

This is necessary to assess the situation in your mouth. Assessing the current state of the teeth and dental tissues: how many dentures will be needed and what is the best sequence to do it. Discuss your expectations and options. During the examination, a detailed treatment plan is discussed, the number of visits and the price.

If necessary, teeth are filled, root canals are treated or retreated, and professional oral hygiene or other necessary procedures are carried out prior to the prosthetic treatment.

Modern methods of restoring teeth are more appropriately called restorations than dentures. Today, lost teeth can be replaced with permanent, durable, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing artificial teeth that fully restore chewing function. With them, a person can eat their favourite food again, communicate with confidence and smile.
Only the dentist can choose the most appropriate treatment. The aim of the Vingis Clinic team is to help patients choose the most appropriate treatment and to perform it in a high-quality manner. During the consultation, we explain the pros and cons of different prosthetic technologies, the options and the costs. We help the patient to make a decision based on the clinical situation, the choice of the right prosthetic technology and the patient’s financial means.

There are three types of dentures:

  • Fixed;
  • Removable;
  • Hybrid.

Fixed prostheses

Pads, blankets. Designed to restore the chewing surface or part of the chewing surface of the lateral teeth, thereby protecting the remaining weak tooth structures from possible decay.

Metal-free ceramic laminates. These are extremely thin (up to 0.3 – 0.5 mm thick) ceramic dental plates that are fixed to the outer surface of the tooth. Laminates are suitable for those who want to correct the colour and shape of a tooth or teeth, to close gaps between teeth, to straighten teeth that have changed direction, or to restore chipped or worn teeth. Laminates are commonly used to correct the aesthetics of anterior teeth. The biggest advantages of choosing ceramic veneers for dentures are: teeth are stronger and less worn than filling materials; teeth do not discolour or lose their shine over time.

Dental crowns (crowns). Covers the entire tooth, right up to the edge of the gum. They are placed on the damaged (chipped, cracked, worn, etc.) tooth. Dental crowns are made in the same size, shade and shape as natural teeth. In case of a large crown defect, it is recommended to replace the teeth with zirconia ceramic or metal-free ceramic crowns, which are physiologically best tolerated by the oral tissues.

Bridges. Used when one or more adjacent teeth are lost. A bridge of artificial teeth is placed over the supporting teeth or implants. The bridgework restores the lost functions of the teeth: aesthetics, phonetics, and even distribution of chewing forces.

Implant-supported prostheses

They are used when one or more teeth are missing from the patient’s jaw. Only with dental implants is it possible to restore the entire tooth from root to crown.
Dental implants are the most advanced, reliable and long-lasting modern technology for restoring lost teeth. Dental implants are similar in price to dental bridges, and the end result can last for decades.

Removable dentures

  • Partial removable dentures.

For patients who have lost several teeth in one of the dental arches (upper or lower jaw).

  • Fully removable dentures (plates).

To be addressed to patients who have lost all the teeth in the lower and/or upper dental arch. Removable dentures can also be fixed on implants. Patients are increasingly turning to dental implants as a modern and high-quality alternative. Dental implants restore 100% of your teeth. chewing efficiency. And a dental plate only restores about 20-40% of your chewing efficiency.


Hybrid dentures are used when there are no teeth left in the jaw (edentulous jaw). Hybrid dentures restore both the chewing and aesthetic function of teeth. This requires the placement of abutment teeth. A total of 8-16 abutment implants are usually placed in the mouth. At least 4 implants per jaw are needed to make a strong fixed hybrid denture. The implants are first threaded into the jaw, and the hybrid denture is placed on top of the implants during the same visit or a week later (depending on the clinical situation).
Implants (as products) are covered by a lifetime warranty, while the wear of hybrid dentures is individual and depends on lifestyle, care and regular preventive visits.

The Vingis clinic uses all types of prosthetic dental treatment.

  • Doctor Audrius Čaplikas
    (experience since 2010), together with a full team of specialists, performs the procedures from the initial consultation to the final prosthesis. This ensures a smooth execution of the treatment plan and builds a long-term relationship with the patient.
  • We use digital technologies (3D scanners, printers, visualisations). This reduces the number of visits and surgeries, and makes the restoration faster and more efficient, without sacrificing quality.

Information about denture care, warranties and periodic visits to specialists is provided immediately after the procedure.

We will discuss the preliminary treatment plan and the price during your first consultation. We offer instalments on demand. For more information , click here.

Examples of completed works

  • Dentures after trauma. What would be a quick solution for a ceramic bridge on an anterior tooth?

    The patient lost several teeth, both front and side, and an old metal-ceramic bridge was broken. Within 24 hours. A temporary bridge is built, restoring aesthetics and function. The patient can smile freely and chew comfortably again! Gum correction around the damaged tooth roots was also performed.
    Permanent dentures will be fitted in 1-2 months, during which time the roots of the teeth will heal and the gums will have time to heal.
    Duration: 2 visits of 1.5 hours each within 2 days.
