What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are restorations used for replacing one or more teeth within the smile in a way that is affordable and easy to care for. Partial dentures are removable, and are fabricated using metal framework and acrylic parts to ensure proper fit and function. The false teeth slide into place when the partial denture is put into the mouth. Patients can enjoy their favorite foods and smile without feeling embarrassed thanks to partial dentures.
Who can use partial dentures?
Most patients are appropriate candidates for partial dentures. These types of dentures do depend on existing teeth within the dental arch in order to provide support for the denture itself. If patients are missing too many teeth from arch, they may be advised to consider removal of the existing teeth to move forward with full dentures instead.
