Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. 
A removable partial denture is for a partially edentulous dental patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or esthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge or implant for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge or due to financial limitations.

Complete dentures
Conversely, complete dentures or full dentures are worn in patients who are missing all their natural teeth in an arch.
