Removable partials are used to replace one or more missing teeth in the mouth. In some cases a bridge may not be indicated or possible and the option left is a removable prosthesis.
They are made of either metal or acrylic depending on the case (cosmetics needs and functionality).
They are supported by the remaining teeth in the mouth or dental implants, and have clasps that stabilize them.
It is normal to go through an adjustment period and also going back to your dentist due to sore spots. Needing a reline, repair or adjustment is also normal.
