Partial dentures are devices that are used when one or more natural teeth remain healthy in the upper or lower jaw. They are designed to fit around the remaining healthy teeth and can be either removable or fixed. Removable partial dentures can be removed from the mouth for cleaning or eating. A fixed partial denture accomplishes the same result as a removable partial denture, except that it is cemented into place using the adjacent teeth for support and is usually called a bridge. If you need to replace missing teeth and think that dentures might be right for you, contact your doctor for dentures today.
