Background: Prosthetic treatment in children aims to restore aesthetics, to preserve the space for the future permanent tooth, to enable proper development of orofacial structures in all three planes, as well as to enable prevention of temporomandibular diseases. The purpose of the study was to show flexible partial prostheses as a method for prosthetic treatment in children. Materials and Methods: The materials for this study were obtained with extensive searches from the relevant literature. Results: The advantages of flexible partial dentures primarily arise from their flexibility and elasticity, which enable unrivaled growth and development of orofacial structures. They cannot be broken easily. Totally aesthetically, the clasps are made from the same material, the children do not have metal in the mouth and do not complain about pain when wearing them. Dentures are biocompatible and not allergic. They have very low weight. Denture base is reduced, thus avoiding the feeling of nausea in children. Conclusion: Partial dentures in childhood should only be temporary solutions until the development and development of children is completed.
