A partial denture is used when you want to replace one or more missing teeth and does not want dental implants. It is a removable appliance that fits in your mouth and is often kept in place by a framework and metal clasps that wrap around your existing teeth.
The advantage of having a partial denture is that it helps restore your chewing function and holds the space of the lost tooth/teeth so that your other teeth do not move into space. A disadvantage of a partial denture is that it often becomes loose and needs tightening as bone loss continues in the area of the missing tooth. A dental implant can help in both these cases.
A partial denture takes several appointments to complete. There are also other options for replacing single or multiple missing teeth such as dental bridges and dental implants.
