Partial dentures are used when only some of the teeth have been removed. A metal frame that connects to your natural teeth attaches to your partial dentures to fill in the areas where teeth are missing.
Even though your dentures are fake teeth, you need to take care of them as if they are real. You will need to use a gentle cleanser to consistently brush your dentures. You will need to keep up consistent cleaning of your tongue, gums and remaining teeth as well. It is also necessary to keep dentures moist when they are not in use in order to prevent bacterial growth.
