Definition : Removable prosthetic plates (i.e., bases) designed to support partial or complete artificial dentures. These plates are typically made of plastics (e.g., acrylic resin), natural resin (e.g., shellac), or metal and are configured to fit the shape of the mouth cavity; the plates are usually an integral part of movable dentures. Dental plates are configured to permit easy extraction and repositioning of a removable denture by the user.
