Four Main Types of Dentures
1. A fixed bridge (or fixed partial denture).
One or more false teeth are held between healthy teeth on both sides. You cannot take this kind of bridge out by yourself.
2. A partial denture (or removable partial denture).
One or more false teeth are held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby healthy teeth. You can take the false teeth out yourself, for cleaning and at night.
3. Complete dentures.
If you lose your teeth, these dentures can replace all your natural teeth.
