Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. It consists of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-coloured base that attaches to your natural teeth with clasps. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend a partial dentures for the following reasons:

  • Loss of several teeth in an arch.
  • Enhancing smile and appearance.
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.

    One patient concern with partial dentures is that they are worried the clasps will be seen. Please see below a photo of a patient with a partial denture received at Grace Dental.
