Partial Dentures

Another alternative is a removable partial plate. This type of alternative replaces teeth that are missing. It is made of metal with hooks that grab teeth for support. Unfortunately the hooks have a tendency to loosen up the teeth and partial dentures have the tendency to get loose and require multiple adjustments through the years.

Furthermore on the upper there is a large piece of metal that goes across the roof of the mouth which can interfere with taste sensation and/or have food collected under it.

Additionally the partial plate can press into the gum tissue and cause sores. The partial plate must be taken in and out each day to be cleaned. It is certainly not an ideal alternative.
