Removable partial dentures

Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch (or jaw). They are typically fabricated with a metal frame that sits/fits onto the natural remaining teeth, although some are made with a more flexible gum-colored acrylic for esthetic reasons. Currently, removable partial dentures are fabricated while a more definitive treatment is accomplished or if no other choice is viable, since there are more contemporary techniques that are quite reliable and provide a closer feeling, look and function to natural teeth.
