If just a few of your teeth are missing, partial dentures can fill the gap. Removable partial dentures, also known as a removable dental bridge, are a form of replacement teeth that you can take out to clean every day.
With removable partial dentures, false teeth are supported by a metal framework. This framework holds the denture in place by attaching to surrounding natural teeth, or in some cases, crowns that are attached to the natural teeth. Crowns on your natural teeth are sometimes necessary to improve the fit of a removable partial denture and are required with certain attachments.
However, the framework fits, a person with removable partial dentures can remove and replace the bridge comfortably for care and cleaning.
Not only are dentures a convenient and aesthetic solution for your missing teeth, but they improve functionality of your mouth and overall well-being. Eating should become a more pleasant experience with removable partial dentures, and they can improve your speech if you have difficulty pronouncing certain words due to missing teeth. Your partial dentures will also not only fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, but they will prevent other teeth from changing position.
