Partial Dentures

When patients are missing a few teeth, one of the options is a partial denture.  This is a removable plate and can be made of a combination of plastic and metal.  These are strong and long lasting.  The partials can also be made of just plastic with wire clasp for support.  These are also very useful in some circumstances. 

Partials are an option when fixed bridgework or implants are not being used to replace missing teeth.  This could be discussed with your doctor.
