A removable partial denture is designed specifically to meet the needs of the patient and can replace one or more missing teeth. A natural appearance and speech clarity is restored along with the ability to eat more efficiently.
Traditionally, removable bridges have been the simplest way to replace missing teeth. This is done by means of a single appliance that is held in place either with clasps or suction. Although many patients still wear these, the procedure is becoming decreasingly popular with the advent of dental implants.
