In dentistry, a partial denture is a “removable” prosthesis that has been produced as a replacement for missing teeth. But precisely because partials are removable, they can be a problem for some partial denture wearers. They can be ill-fitting, uncomfortable, and limiting when it comes to mastication or chewing force. They can even pop out of place. And because they can be seen by their metal hooks and clasps, patients often feel self-conscious or hesitant. One way to solve for missing teeth, of course, includes the placement of [dental implants], those tiny titanium roots and posts that hold a crown in place and serve as tooth replacements, but unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. So partial dentures offer our patients another option.
