Removable and fixed partial dentures
Removable partial denture:
Multiple missing teeth were traditionally replaced with conventional removable partial dentures. They are made from a metal or acrylic framework with retention wire metal clasps that engage the remaining teeth to retain the prosthesis. Some patients are put off by removable dentures due to the appearance of the clasps.
The advantages of a removable partial denture include preserving the enamel of adjacent teeth due to minimal preparations and the minimal volume of lost gum and bone. Removable partial dentures are relatively inexpensive compared to fixed bridges or dental implants. However, they do require frequent replacement or adjustment.
Fixed partial denture or bridges:
To allow the bridge to be fitted correctly, extensive reduction of adjacent teeth may be required. The bridge allows for the missing tooth to be replaced by a suspended crown. Many variables need to be considered when preparing the adjacent teeth and in some cases, multiple teeth will require a reduction. Fixed partial dentures or bridges may need to be replaced as the supporting teeth tend to fail due to periodontal disease or decay.
When multiple tooth replacements are needed, each patient has to be individually assessed, as no two cases are the same. There are a multitude of variables to consider when researching multiple and full replacement implants, including number, brand, type, medical status, consultations, bone grafting procedures, and laboratory considerations.
