A good smile can boost your self-esteem and enhance your health, so losing your natural teeth can be devastating. Unfortunately, about three out of five people ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth. In fact, some of us lose most or all of our teeth because of decay, gum disease, or injuries.

Partial Dentures

This type of prosthesis is recommended if you need to replace several teeth in a row or your remaining teeth are not strong enough to support a fixed bridge. Removable partial dentures consist of acrylic or ceramic artificial teeth embedded in a gum-colored plastic base that is form-fitted to the underlying mouth tissues. Inside the prosthesis is a framework of light, noncorroding metal that makes it strong and stiff.
