What is Tooth Enamel? Have you ever wondered about tooth enamel? What is it? How important is it? How can you protect it? Here are the answers to all of your enamel questions.

A partial denture is one or more replacement teeth supported by a metal frame. It is removable, and usually held in place in the mouth by metal clasps. What to Expect Before making the partial denture, any existing dental work that needs to be done to prepare will be completed.
