Removable Partial Denture

A removable partial denture (RPD) consists of an artificial tooth or teeth with small attachments on either side. These attachments anchor the artificial tooth to the teeth beside it but can be detached when the RPD needs to be removed. Attachments may be made of metal or flexible material that blends into your surrounding tissues. Being removable is useful for cleaning, but may cause the device to be slightly less retentive than a fixed bridge.
