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. Multiple impressions and bite registrations are required to construct a partial denture. Once the partial denture is made, it will be inserted and adjusted so that it is comfortable, looks natural, and functions properly. Your partial denture will then be checked and adjusted if needed at your regular checkups. The entire process should be pain-free, and no anesthetic usually needs to be used. Read more.
