A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces your missing teeth and surrounding tissue. It's used when some natural teeth remain.
It not only fills in the spaces created by your missing teeth, but it prevents other teeth from shifting.
It's made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
A denture is a very durable appliance and will last many years, but may have to be readjusted, repaired, or replaced due to normal wear.
