What do you know about partials?
A partial denture may be tooth-supported or tooth and tissue supported. Acrylic partials are usually a temporary replacement for missing teeth. Whereas the metal/acrylic partial or cast partial or is usually a more rigid and permanent style of denture. The metal partial is ultra-thin, light and very strong.
All partials are designed to be removable and should be removed nightly to contribute to a healthy oral environment. Partials do not harm remaining natural teeth. A partial denture may prevent your natural teeth from shifting or drifting into any space left by the loss of natural tooth/teeth.
In fact a partial denture may help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing them with additional support. A partial denture will help you look, feel and even chew better!!
