Could removable partial dentures need any dental works?

In brief: For teeth or denture

The teeth that the partial hangs clasp to need to be in good shape to withstand the force of chewing and the partial clasping onto it.
So if any dental work needs to be done on these "abutment" teeth, then the partial may have to be adjusted, changed or actually remade. The partial, over time, may need to have the clasps tightened or adjusted.

In brief: Adjustments

They will wear over time.
They will need adjustments occasionally and can break. They don't last forever. The mouth changes over the years, so the need to be replaced so often.
