The removable prosthesis can be partial or complete. The removable partials can be fully acrylic or can have a metal part called skeleton and are used to replace one or more teeth. These last ones are known as skeletal.
The removable partial acrylic prostheses are most affordable and should be only temporary. However, they are the most commonly used in Portugal for social-economical reasons.
- If one chooses to use a removable prosthesis, we recommend to have a replacement one, if it is affordable. This is a way of avoiding setbacks if you break your prosthesis. This additional prosthesis may have less teeth and be fully acrylic. This way, it is more affordable.
