Removable Partial Dentures
What are Removable Partial Dentures?
A removable partial denture is an appliance used to replace one or several missing natural teeth with artificial teeth. It is attached to remaining teeth with metal clasps. These dentures are removable to allow for easy cleaning. The base of removable partial dentures is usually made of acrylic or metal. The gums are made from acrylic, and the artificial teeth are made from acrylic or porcelain.
Your dentures will be designed by Dr Seaman or Wiley to best fit your specific needs. Because they require use of soft tissue and remaining teeth, a thorough examination will be performed to determine if dental work is needed prior to removable partial denture fitting.
