A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Dentures can be made to replace all the teeth or they can be made to replace a few missing teeth (partial dentures). Partial dentures can be made with a metal framework that has acrylic base and teeth attached in the areas where the teeth are missing. The metal framework also has clasps or arms that extend out and fit around some of the existing teeth. The combination of the acrylic base and the arms that wrap around some of the teeth keep the partial denture stable during normal oral functions.
Alternative to tooth replacement. This is done in cases where the surrounding natural teeth are not strong enough to support dentures or when more than one tooth is missing.The can be taken out and cleaned anytime.
