Fixed partial denture

Definition

noun

A type of partial denture that is firmly attached to natural teeth or roots, and cannot be removed readily


Supplement

Fixed partial denture is ideal when only one tooth (or very few teeth) needed to be restored or replaced. That's because the fixed denture can be very expensive compared with the removable type. The fixed-type looks, feels, and functions more like a natural tooth.
