There are two types of dentures: partial and full dentures. Both types are made in a dental lab, based on a mould (or impression) of your mouth.
A partial denture (also called a partial) is made up of one or more false teeth and held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby healthy teeth. It has to be removed at night and for cleaning.
A partial denture may be used when nearby teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge or when more than just a few teeth are missing.
