Dentures are appliances that are custom made to replace a person’s missing teeth and restore the appearance and oral functions that were lost. A partial denture is used when some of the person’s teeth are missing.
partial dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace one or more missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
A partial denture is designed to fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. It is either a plastic or metal plate with a number of false teeth attached to it. It usually clips onto some of your natural teeth via metal clasps, which hold it securely in place in your mouth. It can easily be unclipped and removed.
The denture is usually fitted as soon as your teeth are removed, which means you won’t ever be without teeth. The denture fits snugly over your gums and jawbone.
