Partial dentures are recommended when only a few missing teeth need to be replaced. Metal clasps or precision attachments are used to secure the partial denture to your natural teeth. At first, partial dentures may seem a little awkward or bulky to wear. After time, they'll feel more comfortable
Initially, you may be inclined to wear your partial denture all the time. That's not a good idea. We'll give you specific instructions on how long your partial dentures should be worn and when they should be removed. Your mouth tissues need to rest, so it is advisable that you remove your partial denture for at least 4 hours in every 24 hour period.
