If you have missing teeth but cannot have dental implants placed, a removable partial denture is an alternative option you can consider. Alternatively it can be used as an interim / temporary prosthesis during the healing phase of dental implant therapy. A partial denture has clasps that hook onto your teeth to retain it and acrylic teeth for an aesthetic solution.
Removable dentures are an affordable option
Whether you are missing few or all of your teeth removable dentures can be used to replace them. Complete or full dentures replace all your teeth, whereas partial dentures replace some of your teeth. Tooth replacement involving dental implants are becoming more popular and your dentist will advise on which of these options may be best for you. There are disadvantages of removable dentures that you need to be aware of prior to embarking on this treatment, such as continued bone loss and movement of the denture, however they are an aesthetic and affordable short-term option.
