Can partials damage the jawbone?

I got my partial dentures. Can partials damage the jawbone?

A properly fitting partial denture will not damage the jawbone. If you have too much pressure from the partial on a certain part of your mouth, your dentist can relieve the partial for a proper fit.

Partials that fit well no. But jaw bone does diminish over time in us all. And a little faster if you wear a partial or denture. Never sleep with it in. This will slow down the process. Get Outlook for iOS<>
