If a tooth is lost or extracted, or if as is often the case in elderly people, all teeth are lost, the Artificial (False) teeth are readily available.
It is possible to replace single teeth, or have a partial or even complete set of such false teeth made to suit any one individual.
Four Main Types of Denture Fittings.
- Fixed Partial Set (Fixed Bridge). Either one or more false tooth is inserted and held between two healthy teeth. This kind of bridge is non removable.
- Removable Partial Dentures. The inserted false teeth are held by clasps, and held in position by adjacent natural teeth. These false teeth are removable.
