Key Messages

  • Removable complete dentures may last for an average of 10.06 years, with most complete dentures lasting for at least 5 years.
  • Most metal partial dentures may last for at least 5 years.
  • We did not identify any studies that met inclusion criteria for our report describing the longevity of removable plastic partial dentures.
  • The included studies did not report populations, interventions, and outcomes clearly or consistently. This made some of the findings difficult to interpret.
