Partial dentures are a type of dental bridge that is commonly used by people who have lost just a couple of teeth due to malnutrition, tooth decay or a jaw-related accident. When there are gaps in your teeth it can result in bacteria and food forming in these empty spaces.

In these cases, partial dentures are used by dentists to fill the gaps in and prevent gum and tooth decay eventually.

In addition to helping you eat and speak better, they also help to prevent your lips and cheeks from caving in which can often happen whenever a significant tooth loss occurs.
