I try to create blogs to help people understand dentistry. I have been a dentist in Palm Harbor, Florida for over 24 years. There are certain terms that a dental office uses routinely, but may not be understood by the average patient. Firstly, replacement of missing teeth fall into two broad categories, Fixed and Removable. A precision partial blends both of these types.
A traditional cast frame removable partial denture shows clasps, those unsightly things one may have noticed when someone with a traditional partial denture smiles. With a precision partial, the need for the clasps can be replaced by the “precision attachments” which reside in the fixed bridgework and the corresponding “partners” which reside in the removable partial.
