The removable partial denture (denture) usually consists of false teeth attached to a plastic base the color of pink gums. Depending on your needs, your dentist will design a partial denture for you. A partial denture may have a larger connector or metal framework or framework that lines up with your teeth, or it may have other minor connectors that are more natural-looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with appliances called precision abutments. Precision attachments are generally more aesthetic than connectors.
Crowns on Natural Teeth Crowns on your natural teeth are sometimes needed to improve the fit of a removable denture and are often required with connectors. Generally, partial dentures with precision abutments are more expensive than metal connectors.

Some important tips:
During the first few weeks, your new partial denture may feel awkward or strange in your mouth. This is normal, and with time it will get used to using it.
Inserting and removing the partial denture will require a little practice. Follow all instructions from your dentist. Your denture should fit relatively easily. Never force a denture to fit by biting into it. This could bend or break the metal connectors.
Your dentist will give you specific instructions on how long the prosthesis should be worn and when it should be removed. Initially, you may be asked to wear your prosthesis all the time. Although this may be a temporary annoyance, it is the fastest way to identify areas that may need an adjustment. If the denture puts too much pressure on a particular area, that place will become painful. Your dentist will adjust the partial denture to make it more comfortable. After making the necessary adjustments, your dentist will likely recommend that you remove the denture from your mouth before going to bed at night and put it back in in the morning.
