jaw. This can only be done if there are natural teeth still on the same lower or upper jaw for the denture can be attached to it. Some ways the partial dentures is attached to your natural teeth is by wires or by clasps. The partial dentures can look natural and you don’t have to worry about wires or clasps showing because they are behind the teeth where it is hidden from everybody else.
