If you have several teeth missing on both sides of your mouth, a partial might be the best option to replace missing teeth. A partial can be made of acrylic material that is tinted pink to match your color of gum, and teeth that match the shade of natural teeth still present. A partial uses metal clasps that are hidden or retention for stability, so that they do not move around when eating or talking. The partials are removable and needed to be periodically cleaned professionally, because they can build tarter on them just like normal teeth. We recommend cleaning partials every night in a dental bath filled with an effervescent tablet and brushing with warm water.
