Partial dentures are artificial teeth which are affixed to a metal framework. The metal framework has clasps which attach to the patient’s natural neighboring teeth. Partial dentures are given to patients with several missing teeth and/or if the adjoining teeth are too unstable to hold a bridge.
Full dentures are for patients without teeth. The denture fits into the patients mouth, directly onto the gums. The denture is made of an acrylic framework which has manufactured teeth set into it. These artificial teeth are made of plastic or porcelain.
