Partial dentures are often used as a substitute for the tooth or teeth that are missing. Partial dentures are compensation for missing teeth, holding long natural teeth. Partial dentures are removed when necessary especially when washing your teeth.
Partial dentures do not interfere in speech and chewing. They are composed of parts which abuts the jawbone, artificial teeth and a hook that adheres prosthesis to the other teeth. Partial dentures are recommended in cases where there is no way to set the bridge. Partial dentures can be worn in cases where it is necessary to correct the position of the teeth. Production of such prosthesis is intended to temporarily solve edentulousness, by the time when better compensate for the teeth must be put. The hooks that hold partial dentures are made of wire due to which by the time comes to gum recession and therefore to periodontal disease. This is just one of the lines of reasoning why partial dentures are only a temporary solution.
