Principle of Treatment on the Removable Prosthodontics
The principle of dental treatment focuses on to achieve a good balance between "maintaining the residual tissues in healthy condition" and "the functional recoveries". At first, the two major prerequisite for the residual tissues maintenance are bacterial control and mechanical loading force control, through pre-operative microbial test, and examinations and diagnostics of residual tissues such as temporomandibular joint, muscular groups, existing teeth, periodontal tissues, and residual ridges. Secondly, the functional recoveries are to increase the rate to the utmost of various functions of stomatognathic system as mastication, swallowing, respiration pronunciation and sensation, including aesthetics.
