Not a question, but just a statement. I have had a Nesbit partial (left small incisor) since 2004 . I swear by it. Never came close to swallowing it or to losing it. One has to be aware of sink drains, however. I can see that the old ones, having metal parts, would be dangerous to swallow.

Thanks for sharing that.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Nesbit partial, it is a small, clip-in replacement tooth replacing one tooth, or possibly two adjacent teeth. It clips onto the adjacent teeth. The clasps used to be made with metal, but now is almost always made with plastic clasps.
