In brief: Partial denture

A removable partial denture is used to replace some , not all, missing teeth.
If all are missing, then it is a complete denture. You should see the expert - the prosthodontist - for your evaluation and options. Implants are best , especially at your young age, if you are a candidate. Good luck.

In brief: Options

Replacing your back teeth is important.
These are a few ways to do this. The best replacement is with implants. A fixed bridge can be done if you have teeth on either side of the missing ones. Another option is a removable partial. Talk to a dentist and find out which option is best for you. Good luck.
