There are 2 types of prostheses; partial dentures and complete dentures. They are all made in the laboratory, using a mold (or print) of the mouth.
The partial dentures (or removable partial denture) are often retained by hooks that grip to adjacent healthy teeth. It replaces one or more teeth and must be removed for the night and cleaned.
One can use it when nearby teeth are not strong enough to support a bridge or when many teeth are missing.
At Centre Dentaire St-Joseph we create almost all types of removable dentures.
