In brief: Not usually
By and large, partial dentures with metal frameworks fabricated in the us rarely cause issues with airport security.
Once in a while, however, a patient with such partials may be asked to step aside for screening with a metal-detecting wand.

In brief: Not likely
I have never heard of dental restorations triggering the alarms, but if you want to avoid the delay or any embarassment, consider putting your partials in a case in your carry-on.
