A removable partial denture is fabricated when a person has some of their natural teeth and wants to replace the empty spaces.  This type of denture can be made for esthetic reasons (such as missing front teeth), or functional reasons (to help someone chew more efficiently, or to prevent other teeth from drifting and changing their position).  Partial dentures consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is then connected to a metal framework that holds the denture in place inside the mouth.

All dentures, complete and partial, should be evaluated regularly, and need to be relined every 5-10 years to maintain their fit and support
