Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges. They can replace missing teeth when a fixed bridge is not a viable alternative. A partial denture rests on a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to your natural teeth. If additional teeth are lost after fabrication of a partial denture it is often possible to add the missing teeth to the existing partial. A dentist can come to your house and perform the necessary procedures to repair or add to your existing denture.
